    Tanks guns and ammunition.

    This scheme is similar to BDD structure but with thicker steel plates. This type of structure greatly improves protection against kinetic rounds only when rod fractures during the penetration. It is possible when you use carbide cored ammunition instead of heavy alloy ones. .

  3. What is the purpose of the No.5 scheme (with the worst result)? When so many layers are connected with rubber, the rubber brings no benefit as the whole thing is basically one big rigid block. Isn't it so? Which brings a question why there is no target similar to T-72B turret inserts for example?

  4. Polish numerical simulations for the new APFSDS round against stacked RHA plates and complex targets: 1. stacked RHA 2 - 4. spaced armor arrays 5. spaced steel plates with rubber interlayers (no empty space) 6. ceramic tiles and RHA Targets 4 and 6 cannot be penetrated, but the rest can be defeated.

  5. Military track (in peacetime) is friendly to all road surfaces simply as load is distributed so well compared to wheeled vehicles. Exceptions are when the midden intersects the ventilator and we revert to steel track and even rubber pad or band track does rip up bitumen if you pivot turn. Less damage on dirt as less traction. (less resistance to pivot)

  6. Never (personally) had an issue with tracks tearing up roads. T130, Diehl 513, T150F: never damaged the roads I operated on, in Australia & overseas. Re. Dirt tracks, we’d normally parallel them if we thought we’d damage them by repeated traffic. We’d also road run Leopard AS1 (similar MLC as AS21/KF41) with no issues regarding damage. Can’t imagine composite rubber track would be any more aggressive than conventional track using rubber pads.

  7. A guy in Eastern Bohemia was searching for historical remnants with a metal detector... he found 338 mortar rounds from WW2 burried some 1,5 meters deep underground. The article states it's 82 mm calibre, i.e. Soviet one. There were partizan units operating in these forests at the end of the war. Could be their ammo dump even though that would have to be from the last days of war because normally they used ony small arms and explosives in this area (the most prominent group active in that forest was an intelligence unit of Soviet 1st Ukrainean front lead by major Charitonov enlarged by escaped
