This is actually the largest tank battle in U.S. history. My battery provided artillery support during this battle.

This link has a chart of Abrams tank losses during Desert Storm half way down the page. Under the bumper number is the div that the tank was from. My div(2nd armored div fwd) suffered the most damage mostly due to friendly fire incidents. The interesting thing is since my division was brigade sized so we were attached to much larger divisions. This allowed me the option to wear the combat patch of 2nd armored div,1 infantry div, or the 1st armored div. I chose the 2nd armored patch.
