  1. To the rescue! Yes, ERAWA-2 casettes are covered by 4mm special absorber layer (1K2KS and 1KF2KS absorber) whit mass 6kg/m2 and able to protect against radar working in band X and Ku whit f=8-16GHz. On typical PT-91 sucht absorber cover circa 20m2 and achive reduce detecting range at 50 to 60% for typical conditions. Yes, on Ukarine in 2016 (tests for other client) when ERAWA-2 outperform Knive ERA vs HJ-8, RPG-29 and PG-7VR and BK-14M. Sorry, no details couse all is classified still :(
  2. Apage satana! ps. ---------------------------------- GDLS has ofered Polish Army ca 320 M1A1/M1A2PL - unfortunatly cost wast to hight for us now. Previously GDLS has ofered ca 800 M1A1PL for ca 4,5 billion Euro. And service center in Poland. Future of the armoured corps is still old shitty T-72M1. Sad.
  3. And control station whit polish president (photos taken by his Twitter)
  4. Confirmed by Bumar Labedy (PT-91 and T-72M1 producer) abilites of ERAWA to reduse Panzerfaust-3IT: https://bumar.gliwice.pl/storage/files/June2019/ohaApiM4mYfX4uLegMnO.pdf https://bumar.gliwice.pl/strefa-militarna/o/erawa
  5. My friends draw about Spz Puma upper frontal hull armour.
  6. In some way funny but it's seems that Abrams are seriously consider for polish army... 11 Armoured Cav. Div. HQ told to brigades that in December will be finall decision about take ca.240 M1 Abrams. I'sholud be sceptic but source is rather good. Abrams should be taken by two brigades: 10Armoured Cav Brig and 34 Armoured Cav Bde. Still Im doubt but knowing this goverment - it's possible...
  7. Well in SPz Puma even hot air exhaust is made by double slopped NERA: About month ago I looked very cearfully on Shutzpanzer Puma on Ostrava NATO days :-) Lets's sey that is better protected then I suspected. Mucht better. Talks whit crew was very interesting too. In fact for upper front hull part SC jet or 30-40mm KE rod must overcome 2 or 3 slopped on 18@ NERA plates, then overcome slopped front plate (LOS ca.50-60mm) then fly trought engine comparment and finnaly overcome 20mm bulkhead before crew comparment. In lower hull we have two slopped 15mm plates whit primary engine fuel tank (50L) then we have huge slab of metal - HSWL and MTU engine and then 20mm bulkhead. IMHO Puma front is between 200-250mm vs KE penetrator from medium caliber automatic canons. In case SC warhed lower hull is less protected but upper hull - it shoud be able to stop any 80's ATGM without precursor and propably RPG-28 and PzF-3T frontally. A lot of NERA and huge space is nice protection IMHO. Couple photos: Engine compartment - look at triple NERA layers: NeRa or NxRA everywhere...: Here is visible bulkhead thickenss: And chamber for 50L fuel tank and doubla slopped ca.15mm plates:
  8. My anotherone article - this time: RAK SELF - PROPELLED MORTAR vs COMPETITION Article in english: https://fragout.uberflip.com/i/1173894-frag-out-magazine-26/11? RAK vs Nona, Vena, Chosta, AMOS, NEMO, Mjolner.
  9. @UP It's not suprise couse in middle 2000s' both: RCWS-30 and UTD-30 faild climatic tests in Poland during (not ended) BMP-1 MLU program. The same problems - not workin under -15C turrets. My coment: xD
  10. And and that this info's came public due to sevral polish military journalist in 2015 ;-) More seriously - sucht german patent: https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/4a/31/76/4c24841d62e3ce/US20180224251A1.pdf?fbclid=IwAR1SAv9tFXS7rPPAqhy4YDU6Cu10vt5sGK7tYRqBN8BW55NaOliQHJI-JLA Show this idea: When we are talking sevral years ago the only posiblities to overcome sucht thick and multi-ERA-layerd armour like on Oplot-M (whit some consist Lmax for western 120mm ammo) was to change idea of the attack, and infos about data-link for M829E4, Nexter OLF-F1NG, and...KE2020 whare some aditional help to think how to hell it could work. And really the only resonable option is detached during fly precursor -in fact it can be very elegeant and simply solution but onnly whit state-of-art metalurgy. Just metal conection beetween main rod and precursor which overheat during fly lets go "precursor" - rest is pure areodynamic or in more complex way - small air breakers somwhere near fins or tracer - just tiny ones to very small incarase aerodynamic resistance.
  11. That's not the point - the point is that cut-viev have no single part accoding to infos about data-link. Why? IMHO it's just censored version for exibition not real M829A4. Thats all. ps. OK, there are minor changes at ignitor case and whole M829A3 for compare:
  12. I'm seriously doubt if this is real M829A4 cut-view. IMHO it's preapared mock-up for sucht shows and exibitions and some parts are removed. For example - where is data link? Igniter from M829A3 whit no changes? etc..
  13. From my article about 2AV armour. Many thanks for all peoples who help me whit this subject ;-) 2AV armour: Turret armour citadele: turret special armour: hull in 1st version: B&V test station, simmilar armour was choosen for 2A0: Compare wester and estern tank but important notice - in my article is almoust exatly the same as @SH_MM mentioned above: Compare: And AT weapons and sevral APFSDS munition:
  14. UP What is consist whit known test where armour module where able to stop DM43 from 2km
