I just finished reading the exhaustive Ukrainian armor -thread among few other great threads, and felt like I shall contribute something to this forum in return.

    Tank Layout

    It's less geometrically efficient than a round turret, but the abrams and Leo 2 both have good side protection: Like the turret front it appears to be semi-modular, so the exact protection would depend on what exact armor package they put in there. The bustle is narrower than the front of the turret, so it's not like it gets exposed if the turret is presented slightly off-center to a threat: You can see the blow-off panels relative to the sides of the turret; the edge of the loader's hatch is close to the edge of the armor. One of the best giveaways of how thick modern MBT ar

  11. Um, excuse me, rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents. In fact, all lagomorphs were staunch US allies in the War on Rodents until Jimmy Carter sold them out, the feckless bastard.

  15. Role and weapon fit wise, not specifics of operation and basing, I think it is likely to be a long range platform for a disturbingly large missile load.

  19. Neat video showing off how HEAT shells work. The guy detonates 4 charges, one that's just explosive, one with explosive that has an indentation in it, then one with an explosive that has an indentation in it that's filled with metal, and finally, the same charge as in part 3, but at a small offset to focus the blast.
