Fallout Re: MBT's

What they've done essentially, with the Chinese designations for ERA "FY-4" is add 10mm more, to each of the two armored steel plates that make up the ERA "panel/case". The term used to describe the plates (And please from memory.) is "flyer/orflyers" which when struck, will shift to break up the jets causing disruption to the warhead thus reducing it's penetration into the RHA armor.

Earlier versions and the Chinese model from the ref below in general follows the history of ERA which started with just Steel plates.
Paras 4-6 get to the issue.
https://www.armyrecognition.com/weap...mmunition.html

There are three other types (That I'm familiar with, NERA, NxRA and SLERA. These have their advantages and many consider them to be better and or superior to ERA. What can't be denied is they're all much lighter. The following covers these in an easy manner, I hope is at the end of the article, you'll see were it's sourced from.

Also though, as I've heard of the technology involved I couldn't remember the names they are also in this article as I've just read it.

So under "Reactive armor technologies under development for battle tanks" you'll find what you want, if you want it.
https://www.asminternational.org/doc...e-e94395d1bb3f

The above comes from the USA Research community, note the sources at the end of each article.

I just don't know yet how much of a difference those 10mm's are going to make a difference. are we talking as a matter of increasing the ERA package as in the game now for the VT-4, by a factor of 10%, 15% or 20% I just don't have the information now to make a "good educated guess". I am pretty sure that it probably won't be more then 20% - 25% at best.

And I'm not "keen" on that 25% until I break out my calculator.

Regards,
Pat

Regarding French 105mm Guns
French guns are designated “Canon 105mm” or CN105, I suggest in game “CN105mm” this way everyone would understand it is a French gun.
As for sub-types, we have:
- “Gun F1 81”(L/56) for the French AMX30. I suggest the name “CN105mm Mle67” to all of them. Has the OCC F1 Mle60 HEAT round, from 1993-98 it received the OFL105G2 APFSDS and the from 1999 the OFL105F2 DU APFSDS (developed in 1995)

- “CN D1504” (L/44), Argentinian “FTR” is a similar gun made under licence (used by Paraguay too). Also, Austrian SK105 “Gun F 65”. I suggest the name “CN105mm Mle57” to all of them. The Israel “CN D1” (L/51) is D1508 (Chile too). They are all the same guns, accuracy should change to all users from 11 to 14.

- “Gun G1” it’s the “CN105mm Mle57” (L/44) with a modified muzzle brake to fire the new OFL105G1 APFSDS

- “Gun F3 78” (L/48) of the AMX10RC is the “CN105mm F2 78”, it was introduced only in 1981 and its APFSDS OFL105F3 was introduced only in 1987. From 2010 it was updated to AMX10RCR with a new “CN105mm G2” (L/50)
The Argentina SK105A1 in game have a “Gun F3 78”, that’s bad info, all SK105A1/2 have the “CN105mm G1”. The Austrian Army SK105s have “G2” and “G3” guns shown, Brazilian SK105A2S have “G2”, but that’s not right, it was G1 all the time

MAY TANK NEWS AND YES I'M TRACKING THEM ALL with a couple of extras.

ARGENTINA: The Nahuel DL43 is already in the game. This shows some rare pictures of the tank with an interesting background story.
https://tanks-encyclopedia.com/nahuel-dl-43/

BRAZIL:
Looking for a tank at 50 tons w/ a low recoil 120mm MG. As the poster suggests, the T-84-120 Yagatan (Ukraine) is ready made and has been updated w/ the OPLOT-M FCS for UKRAINE's use as I posted late last Fall. If selected the FCS should look kike THAILAND's OPLOT-T as revised again in the last patch. Also Japan is mentioned in the 2nd ref, I wonder why? .
http://www.tank-net.com/forums/index...howtopic=44508

(Janes link is dead (Which is what I had.) as I've said those are perishable.)
https://monch.com/mpg/news/land/6884...t-vehicle.html
(This reports a 8x8 FSV as well.)

Also requiring follow-up (Which will probably be fielded first.), BRAZIL is further looking into upgrading their LEO2A5-BR tanks.

CHINA: They have deployed the TYPE-15 in the Tibetan Region, as expected. This tank would be at the forefront of any action against India in that region and surrounding areas due to road conditions in that region.
https://www.armyrecognition.com/may_...et_region.html

ALSO
: An older story (AUG 2016) that however due to costs of the TYPE-99 Series of tanks still holds true now. This article is on the what was then to come, the TYPE-96B tank.
https://thediplomat.com/2016/08/meet...ew-tank-force/

CROATIA: This next again as above is just good information that's tracks most of what's known on M-95 DEGMAN it was a newer source I crossed checked against others that had "snippets" of newer data in it. This tank like most from the last submission to the patch was a resubmission from the pervious year that appeared originally ONLY in the MBT THREAD and put "back to together" in the Patch Post Thread as
Parts 1-3 for the last game patch. I made some minor adjustments based on this and newer information to that tank from when it originally was posted the previous year.
https://aw.my.games/en/news/general/...nt-m-95-degman


CZECH REPUBLIC: 30 T72M4CZ will be upgraded by 2023 with new components and electronics to include the FCS among others. Also they be able to fire the new EPpSV-97 APFSDS round that pierces 540 mm of rolled homogeneous armor (RHA) at 2,000 m. I can see this in effect by JUN 2021 with enough units to establish "roughly" a company of these tanks pending no delays or cancellation of the program (COVID-19 is already delaying several armored programs or worse at this time, as will be shown as I post those articles.)
https://www.armyrecognition.com/june...s_by_2023.html

It's time "I squared myself away" before I just might not!?! No worries, that won't happen because of you know who!!

Regards,
Pat
