Abrams armor is semi-modular for the turret. You simply cut open the access ports on the top of the turret and slide the armor out. Hull armor... I don't know.

I can understand being able to do that but as it’s integral to the design that would probably greatly weaken the armour. An unsupported plate is nothing like as strong as something that is part of a structure if designed properly. So what do they do replace it with tungsten or steel?

Fallout Re: MBT's

My time is short, however, from what I can find is there are 3 options for the foreign buyer depending on budget for inserts...
1. Steel Plate/2. Applique Armor/3. Ceramic Armor.

I thinking not likely, but possibly, ERA.

Very basic for the following ref., but if layered, the layers can be removed.
