  1. IMHO only 35deg couse the overall LOS is too small for 0 deg.
  2. IMHO the point it's diffrent - those younger test station it's only new ERA (or diffrent slopped) before a lot of the RHA. This older test station (T-80U "turmfront") have some special armour inside this box after ERA. So it's completly diffrent target...IMHO more relevant in compare to tank
  3. It's test target from Germany (RHM) pretend to be russian tank , a lot of RHA...in compare to turret front of the T-80U test station here: (RHM erly 1990s)
  4. Next part part of poor quality photos:
  5. My old photos of the polish Leopard 2A4
  6. Part two ;-) Vehicles during trials before army had take them - so they are without camouflage yet.
  7. Sevral of my photos - Command RAK-SMK vehicle shooting GAk-81 camouflage granade: GAk--81 empty case:
  8. As I know it's the main way in modern SC warhed. Typical explosive fill and HHS plates in ERA are to sow to disturb jet tip. And jet tip is responsible for most penetration posibilities... IMHO the reson was diffrent in case german PzF-3. Thay had started developed PzF-3 in 1978(!) and first prototypes went in1982-1983 and trials in 1985. But first production series where from 1989 but it take to service in german army in 1992. All dalay was due to 2s21 tests and abilities. And this precursor based on EFP style SC was developed to overcome thin ERA Kontakt 1 casette and reactive plates inside. And it works fine. The "zonk" was after T-80U tests in Germany and Swedish trials in 1992. So they changed precursor and it didn't work well against 4s22 and ERAWA-2. Co they changed againt to non-initiating SC (low granulate) and in 2005 serial Pz-3IT600 had new abilities and defeted ERAWA-2 without problem.
  9. No details, usally "super fast SC" is more then 10,5km/s No, this ERAWA-2 from your post is lightweigt version based on aluminium alloy casette and HHS throwable plates. Normal ERAWA-2 is based on HHS casette.
  10. Well from my article in FO! :https://fragout.uberflip.com/i/1150145-frag-out-magazine-25/79? There is description. Generally - prototypes of Pzf-3T and IT600 has faild vs ERAWA in 2000 (losing 50% penetrating power) but finall PzF-3IT600 whit new main "super fast" SC perforated in 2007 ERAWA-2 without any problem (lost only ca 100-150mm RHA).
  11. http://www.witu.mil.pl/www/biuletyn/ptu_2020/151/97.pdf The reduction of the armour system mass was estimated to 32-37%due to the use of the innovative grade of steel.
  12. Posted by myself before polish made "new" 120mm Pz."xx" round: Ca 620-640mm RHA at 2km slopped 60@ plate , but there are some news -it's two segmented as Pz.541 but this time eacht segment is made from slighty diffrent WHA alloy whit diffrent abilities to overcome diffrent type of armour: In 0. degree RHA plate this round shoud achive at least 530mm RHA: It's correct whit statsment about 600mm RHA + (and rummors about up to 640mm RHA) in @60 degree plate couse difrence between infinity 0. plate and ended slopped 60 degree plate is ca 17-20% in achived penetration.
