Mystery Missile

Apparently, on August 28th a weapon of some sort penetrated the side armor of an M1A1 tank, passed through the back of the gunner’s seat (and damaging his flak jacket), tearing through some interior systems, and damaging the opposite side of the hull.

A question: Why has this been released publicly? I’m all for open sharing of information, but it seems to me that letting this out does nothing for us and potentially gives vital feedback to the enemy that used the “mystery” weapon. Simply calling it that gives it a certain reputation that can do nothing except give heart to our foes. Just a thought.
