    I see a problem with this story.
     
       Anyway, Muricans in Syria, being stereotypical.

    This was a proposal to up-armor the Chieftain using Burlingon (Chobham) armor in the late 1960s. The shape of the turret resulted in really poor armor coverage, hence the idea was abandoned in favor of developing a new variant of the Chieftain with built-in Burlington armor.

    According to most on the Korean side of the internet, the K21 is resistant to 30mm APDS from the front and 14.5mm AP at the sides and rear.
     
    If this is true or not I don't know but there is footage of one of the ROK BMP-3s firing an unidentified type of AP ammo at a K21 target (https://gfycat.com/PowerlessNaiveCowrie). The 14.5mm AP could also make sense due to the very wide usage of 14.5mm HMGs that the North Koreans use though I haven't seen any sort of solid evidence for me to say with certainty that this protection level is true.
     
    There also has been research done to up the protection levels of the K21s though including additional composite armor blocks (Ceramics and NERA) and net armor though it usually comes at the cost of the amphibious capability the K21 has.

    Some more ROK T-80Us. These screencaps were taken from a video of a training exercise at the Korea Combat Training Center. The T-80Us are being used as OPFOR (North Korean) Armor.

     
     
    During this training you also had K1E1s being used as BLUFOR.

    It is not an autoloader, but a semi-automatic ammo rack. The ammunition is stored in a separate compartment, the gunner or loader selects the desired type of round, then the mechanism pushed the round into the crew compartment, where the loader takes it. Similar system is also used on Merkava 4.
