NVA T34 tanks disabled by anti-tank mines. They were first 2 of 4 tanks accompanied by infantry trying to capture Skyline Ridge and Long Tieng Valley. USAF Spectre Gunship refused to fire on tanks although they could see the tanks infrared signature. Pilot argued that his visibility rules of engagement (ROE) forbid his shooting.
