APC’s, tanks, quad 50’s and dusters made any convoy a moving mass of deadly firepower. We were ambushed in a convoy accompanied by APC’s and tanks. The armor dropped out of the convoy inside the kill zone and turned to face the ambushers. The volume of noise started my ears bleeding as soon the truck I was in passed safely through the massed firepower. Much louder than six 105mm howitzers blasting away using maximum powder charges. It took days for partial hearing to return and full hearing never did return.
