A U.S. Marine Corps M-60A1 main battle tank equipped with reactive armor and mine-clearing rollers and plow stands by at the head of a column of AAVP-7A1 amphibious assault vehicles as the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force prepares to enter Kuwait at the start of the ground phase of Operation Desert Storm.
