In recent operations in Libya, British bombings of friendly tanks from the
air, and anti-tank action against friendly tanks were evident during the entire
battle. The need for clearer identification marks on our tanks has been suggested.
The United States medium tank in this battle gave an excellent performance, according
to the British. Some British observers said medium tanks had been hit as high as
twelve times by 50 mm and even 88 mm shells and were still in operation. It is also
reported that as far as is known the front of the American medium tanks
have not been penetrated.
