  1. Chieftain, versions with all steel armour up to Mk.9, I think, was considered to be a very well protected tank for its time. But that was said during time of rampant use of shape charge ammunition and the steel plate offers arguably not much protection against it. Considering that Germans were pushing for mass production of HEAT-FS ammunition already during the ww2, what was the logic behind chieftain's armour against such ammunition in the 60-70ies?
