Silly question, but is the armor on a BMP-1 strong enough to resist the blast of ERA style armor?

This is a psychological weapon, when hit it surprise SAA to death by enormous explosion and fireworks.

That's a good question.  I looked in Ogorkiewicz and could not find a minimum required thickness for mounting ERA.  But they do put it on sideskirts, so maybe this would work.

Sideskirts have a huge gap between them and hull of the tank....

Give armour type, explosive type, armour thickness, dimensions of explosive and thickness of the ERA backplate and I'll find out for you.

Does your simulation do spalling?  I wonder if you would HESH yourself if you put heavy ERA on something with really thin steel or aluminum armor.

      Greetings, I have been studying in the battle of Afrin since it started. Yet I still lack some information that can clearly analyse the opposite plan, war progress and order of battle of both side (Turkey army clear but YPG isn’t).
       
      I am spectacular interested in the process of the battle as it revealed the true strength of the 2nd largest NATO army. Also, the performance of YPG/YPJ militant against the regular modern army is meaningful to modern warfare study too.
       
      Hence, any kind man can help me on this field or even just give out a reading list?

      ISIS, how you get so many Toyota Hilux pickups?
       
      U.S. Treasury inquires about ISIS use of Toyota vehicles

      Toyota Hilux pickups, an overseas model similar to the Toyota Tacoma, and Toyota Land Cruisers have become fixtures in videos of the ISIS campaign in Iraq, Syria and Libya, with their truck beds loaded with heavy weapons and cabs jammed with terrorists. The Iraqi Ambassador to the United States, Lukman Faily, told ABC News that in addition to re-purposing older trucks, his government believes ISIS has acquired “hundreds” of “brand new” Toyotas in recent years.
      “This is a question we’ve been asking our neighbors,” Faily said. “How could these brand new trucks... these four wheel drives, hundreds of them -- where are they coming from?”

      This was posted on tanknet back in April, I can't believe I missed it.  I'm pretty sure this constitutes a grave crime against AFV decency and good taste.  And why the glossy green paint?
