Eagle Troop’s vehicles included nine M1A1 Abrams tanks and 13 M3A2 Bradley cavalry fighting vehicles. The troops moved on and passed over the 73 Easting line. When Eagle Troop crossed a ridge, they realized enemy tanks and armored vehicles were just ahead. Commanding an M1A1 Abrams, Captain H. R. McMaster ordered his gunner to fire. In less than eight seconds, three enemy tanks were destroyed. But the Iraqis didn’t fire back. McMaster realized they were facing the wrong way. The Iraqis weren’t ready for combat.
