Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Looking at pictures 6, 8 and 10 here, where they say Tanks they mean SP Artillery (although other pictures include tanks. Going agressively after that stuff is a far better way of defending civilians than going after tanks.

A bomb from an allied aircraft exploded among vehicles belonging to forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi during an airstrike Sunday on the highway outside of Benghazi.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

I agree.

Looks like the French caught a Palmaria SP 155mm howitzer battery on the move and blowed-it-up real good.  

Libya Army has about 160 of these things and they are the "heavy" artillery of the Libyan military.  There's all kinds of munitions available for a 155mm tube including a laser guided anti-tank missile, though the Libyans shouldn't have any.  They will have HE, shrapnel, and white phosphorous and that's bad enough.  

A very high value target.  Good on you, whoever spotted these.
