    The RPG myth was NOT busted for number of reasons. First off, hitting the engine block split the force of the ballast, cutting its effectiveness in half. Looking at the Hollywood footage, the RPG exploded UNDER the vehicle. This doubled the effective ballast under the car. Secondly, you never mentioned that RPGs can be armed with various explosive potential. Your analysis and conclusion is BUSTED.

    the 'plowing thru cars' myth was so far from being truly tested. A Big Rigs weight can top at 80,000 lbs. which can have a substantially larger effect than what a 30,000 lb. dump truck can have. Being that they almost made with 30 k lbs. imagine what a hit a larger truck with 50,000 lbs. more of weight pushing it would have accomplished? Conclusion given is a total BUST

    For the analog to be realistic the glass would've been held out in front of the body not flush against the entire frame of the analog. I feel there would be no trama at all if that was the case.
