    Actually it is a well known idea used in "cells" armor developed by hydrodynamic institute of Siberian departament of academy of scince of USSR in 70s. http://btvt.info/5library/vot_yacheiki.htm

    ERA is another product. Creation of a welded turret or at least new turret requires a large ammount of "base resourses". A scientific "school" on welding and armour materials, it is not possible just to appear from nothing. And for example it was 40 years passed from t-64 welded (http://btvt.info/3attackdefensemobility/turret_welded.htm) turret to t-84.

    Is here anybody from "thesovietarmourblog"?

    This so called "rod" (sand rod) is used rod form a cavity in T-64 turret, then aluminum is filled into it. But this not a case for T-72, as the sand itself remains as filler. https://c.radikal.ru/c38/1803/f6/3576ae39ecea.jpg[/img]

    Hull and turret... must... ceramic blocks. You can not imagine hoe much work and resources (money, science, technology) must be invested into a new armor. Dozens of turrets firing trials, introduction of new casting/ I suppose the things you highlighted is desires.

    It is nothing but an opinion, better to find some internal photos or drawings. If so it is rather "strange" design.
