Does, anybody else think sending tanks in to a urban combat situation is a bad idea

Even with infantry support there just to vulnerable to RPG/ATGM teams

We train for this, not the best mission/ tasking, however the Inf do need support, and, it's one of our roles.

Despite its shortcomings and the negation of a lot of advantages of a tank in an urban environment, it's still the most survivable combat vehicle type. Whether tankers like it or not, they will be sent into cities, so better be prepared for it.

During our holidays in Basra we drove into town on Ops to purely become RPG magnets to keep them away from the Warriors. The other advantage was everyone was intent on scalping a tank so the dismounts took a bit less incoming.

Amazing what Squaddies will get up to when left to their own devices. ;)

T-80BV photographed by BRIXMIS. Since tanknet is gone: this was the latest tank fielded in the GSFG/WGF right? No T-80U was deployed to units in East Germany?

Also watch this video, especially the Western target recon mock-ups gave me a bit of the chills:
