Could a powerful tornado lift a M1A2 Abrams tank and cause it serious damage?

An f5 tornado with winds over 300 mph? Keep in mind the Abrams weighs 69 tons. However it has a alot of flat sides that would be taking the wind head on.....would the tank be pushed around at all? My opinion is that the twister would push it a little bit (f4 tornado +) but couldnt lift it high enough to... show more An f5 tornado with winds over 300 mph? Keep in mind the Abrams weighs 69 tons.

My opinion is that the twister would push it a little bit (f4 tornado +) but couldnt lift it high enough to cause real damage.
Also, I would imagine debris wouldn't be a problem at all because of the armor
Update: good thought
but the train cars provide a much larger and boxier profile for the wind than an abrams tank.
Update 2: oh damn ill have to use my tank for other purposes
Update 3: interesting nick, I suppose that if tanks were airtight they might explode in this situation but I dont think they are. Plus, I dont think the drop in pressure would be enough to "explode" a hardened vehicle like a tank. A ford escort, sure, but not an Abrams lol
