    The Leopard 2 Thread

    Laviduce, about your scheme with 80mm at bustle turret side, Leopard-2 never had plates thicker than 45mm, and turret side - spaced armor with 90mm LOS, not 80mm RHA plate, if you do not believe me, you can knock this part in some museum with your fist (of course, if you do not have the opportunity to use USG) and realize how thin the outer plate is there, main requirement for turret bustle side spaced armor - protection from 14,5mm and 20mm, thats all. and of course turret roof have only 40 and 20mm plates, not 70...

    CR2 have lower KE protection than M1A1HA which have 600mm vs KE, so CR1 can't have 620 or 550, and if take some numbers from some british reports about CR1, it's hull front for example have less protection than Shir2 with it's "325mm" but again, all this numbers useless if you don't know which round was used, on which striking velocity etc...

    it's strange, report says that hull special armor weight 1249, so "A" part on scheme can't be fuel cell ? but without big fuel cell how far type90 can ride ?

    google "90式戦車" and found this https://www.zhihu.com/question/59141011 scroll down or try to find this "PS:10式" in text about "armor modeling", main idea is simple if you get very complex and not optimized( have irregular thickness on welded constructions)shape of armor module then you might be wrong and btw there is some scheme claimed that hull front - fuel cell, don't know is it BS from modelers, or really Type 90 have this
