    When AT missiles were first introduced (panzerfaust/RPG) the only answer was to operate with mortar support in the area the tanks actually occupy at the time. Tanks are impervious to mortar fire, ATGM teams are not. More and better armour are necesary, but the old answer is still effective, ATGM teams must stay still, very difficult with phosphorous burning holes in you, and shrapnel hitting you, even Hizbollox aren't that brave. The benefit of mortars is that they can travel immediately behind the infantry and provide organic fire support. These lessons are so basic they should not have to be relearnt. Finally, even restraint is not enough to keep world opinion in light of the bias in the media, therefore there is no need to demonstrate restraint, media opinion is against you whether you are restrained or not.
