    Armor protection of the tanks of the second postwar generation T-64 (T-64A), Chieftain Mk5P and M60
     
    Technical data on soviet 1-st post WW2 generation of tanks, Like T-54, T-55 and T-62 are well known and well described in literature. But what if Soviet “premium” tanks of 70-s era were engaged into real combat against western tanks in Europre.
    This article provides description of "Object 432" (T-64) and T-64A tank combined protection (composite armor, anti radiation and chemical protection) in comparison to western designed tanks – “Chieftain” Mk5P and M60A1. Information on T-64 protection includes technical project (presentation) dated 1961 and technical drawings from various periods. Information on “Chieftain” Mk5P and M60A1 tanks is a result of study of captured tanks delivered to USSR in 1970s and beginning of 1980-s, published in technical reports of that period. The importance of information is the common testing criteria based on Soviet approach to tanks testing and protection design. This article contains mostly direct citations of facts and numbers published in reports with some comments.
     
     
    Well, suppose this is a useless task.

    Prepared a first article in English, but translating this materials is very complex task in question of terms.

    Will be grateful is anybody assist in corrections of this material (terms and so on).

    So the United Arab Emirates ordered German explosive reactive armor for ~125 million Euros. Does anybody know where this is going to be used? Maybe on the Leclerc or BMP-3?

    Possibly a Derivatsiya SPAAG prototype.

    Earlier prototype had old T-72S turret with bunch of ERA on top of it.

     
    Current one. Looks like part of armor inserts are visible here, although IDK if it is accurate representation.

    Because you need to pay for additional ERA block! 
     
    Funny how T-72Bs with K-1 have better ERA coverage of turret frontal area than T-72B3s

    T-72B3. It is obvious that before modification it was T-72B, very likely to be obr 1989 or BA. Big "naked" section in frontal armor indicates that Luna was previously mounted there. And it also shows how cheap-ass this B3 modification is, they didn't even bothered to cover that "naked" part with anything, even K-1 ERA.

    Contrary to most accounts, I'm not sure that the point of the precursor charge in a tandem charge warhead is to trigger the ERA.
     
    ERA turns out to be pretty insensitive stuff, which is by design.  It would be bad if the ERA detonated when it was being installed or handled, or even if the tank were hit by small-arms fire or something weak like that.
     
    So a lot of tandem-charge rounds appear to be designed with a relatively small precursor charge; small enough that it won't (usually) set off ERA.  This makes a hole in the ERA through which the main charge can pass.

    Depend on which prototype. From usual ~60 to ~40 degrees. Don't remember exact numbers.
     
     
    T-72B3s, probably in Ukraine.
