Vehicles of the PLA: Now with refreshing new topic title!

When you check the interior layout you realize that superstructure is necesary for the crew working space (lots of big screens and stuff to manage all the drones and smart weapons). Still, it weakens the already low protection of the vehicle.

 

Oh, I know *a superstructure* is required for the crew working space, but that poorly thought out thin steel box with basically no sloping (which results in the step) is a sad excuse for the design. At the very least, they could have fitted large composite blocks on the front of the step to at least attempt to provide protection.

Fully agree, for starters it is based on a tank with no composite armor so protection could not be relevant anyway. However now knowing the background of the company it is clear to me that this vehicle is just a statement to get into the spotlight and get the public talking about them, and in that evidently they succeded.  Because its not like the PLA is preparing for a "Grozni scenario".

   And? i didn't said that those would be 100% accurate, but would give general idea about size/shape similarities and differences.

Why limited aspect protection (turret)?

 

Main cannon?

 

Armor protection?

 

What are you even asking?  All modern tanks have limited protection on the sides compared to the front.  It's a simple function of geometry and weight.

Seriously? Low effort posting much?  Wanna be a bit more specific with your question, with actual sentence structure so we know what the fuck you are talking about.

 

My mistake. I forget to write frontal.

I mean frontal, yes, but even frontal arc, Chinese design seems unsuited! Armor array is designed in such a way that either the interior is awful or the weakness is exposed in the frontal 60* arc.

 

I realize Russian design is only frontal 60*, NATO include the sides, but China does not. Frontal array is thick but does not cover wider aspect. Like Russian/Soviet & NATO.

Let’s try to be a little nicer and/or forgiving.

 

But if peasant could make the question clearer, that would be welcome. 

Thanks for kindness

Unlikely. SH is a Darwinian environment when it comes to low effort posting. Link or die.

   Can somebody translate if this 1000 mm in RHA is against HEAT or APFSDS?
