Your Gulf War Unit: Eagle Troop 3ACR
I heard of one lost in 2ACR from a secondary explosion from a burning t72 that caught sleeping bags that were in the bustle rack on fire and it got out of hand and the crew bailed out. but none that I know of from direct fire.

Welcome to the forums f16tqs.

Sorry to hear about that friendly fire. There was a lot of it. Of the 11 we lost in 1st Infantry Division, I believe a couple were friendly fire as well. Such a tragedy.
