It is very difficult, perhaps impossible, to knock out an M1A2 Abrams tank with an RPG-7 from the front as in the film. The front armor of an Abrams is extremely thick and lined with several materials to prevent such a penetration.
Although RPGs have been known to damage Abrams tanks, these are impacts on weak points of the tank, and would not have caused the tank to explode as the film depicts. See more »

This plot is a ridiculous leftwing psycho fantasy. Understand that Boeing ,Lockheed and Microsoft are completely responsible for all the violence in the world and aided by the Speaker of the House ,will start a nuclear war to (somehow) maximize profits. Throw in stereotypic rednecks as bad guys .Totally ruined a below average action flic. The acting is OK as far as the plot will let pretty decent performers utter their preposterous lines with a straight face. Spoiler alert- (if that is possible with this movie) If you can get past the blatant propaganda you are still faced with characters such as the pilots who would do things such disobey orders and for all they knew allow a nuclear strike on Iran, killing millions of children to save one child. This is simply Hollywood at its elitist fantasy world worst and the scarier part that they believe-possibly accurately - the viewer is really that dumb.
