Syria shaving razor armour, how does it work.


Recommended Posts

So, an outer layer of 'razors' that look like flimsy steel meant to deform before penetration.


A backing layer of cast 'something' in a box.  Perhaps its concrete, or a rubber/pebble mix.  


This could just be some type of externally applied bulging plates armour.

To be perfectly honest, it looks like improvised material hastily attached to the tank to give the crews more confidence.  I didn't see any reason to think that there was anything particularly clever or scientific about the design.  It was just an attempt to put something; anything into the path of incoming threats and thicken the armor up a bit more, the same as tank crews have been doing since at least the 1940s.
