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.

Accoding to Bumar-Łabędy it was serial in PT-91M Pendakar (Malaj), so rather the change was introduced. Whad more - CAWA-2 armour was tested for never build PT-97 and "Gorilla" tank. And it was tested and "finnal" product - for welded turret and PT-91MZ Hull. Again - the only  one question is about technology change in cast turret whit CAWA-2 inserts. Even Phds Wiśniewski mentioned this in his book:

pancerze-budowa-projektowanie-i-badanie-

 

BTW - accoding to Bumar-Łabendy PT-91M (Malaj) have for 30. degree slighty up then 500mm vs APFSDS-T -it's impossible whit old kwarz filter.

And as You know - its pointless to melt HHS plate in turret during casting. So fairytails or..change armour

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.
