Default Russian top attack defence

Been away so not sure if covered already but it looks like Russia is trying to protect from drones or top attack ATGMs.

Imagine pipe scaffolding. They look like they are made of galvanized pipe with a couple of feet between pipes. I haven't seen any pics lately, so it seems they were mostly scab-ons by individuals.

They look like construction scaffolding. But don't work as well.

As was already posted in Updates in light of Ukraine war thread.
Below MODIFIED with personalization.

John out of respect for you well, this is for you!! Got you covered with videos! You should NEVER forget those that have helped you, in this case like my Marine Friend, YOU have been there from the start.

Now this next I did click on the blue. You might remember that I was pretty adamant about my comments concerning the Russian "bird cage" over the turrets of their tanks and some APC's. I basically said they were crap and would not stop a modern tandem warhead top attack weapon. So, to make my point on that and Stugna-P multi-tasking.

YOU MUST FOLLOW DIRECTIONS TO SAVE YOU TIME FOR THE ABOVE. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ENJOY THE REST AT YOUR LEISURE.

Scroll down to 5 APRIL AND START COUNTING...
Video #1 STUGNA-P taking a helicopter.

Video #3 2 T-72B3 just after top attack. It's FAST but in the beginning, you'll see one T-72B3 had a "bird cage" and like the rest of the tank what's left of it.

Video #12 Unidentified T-72 hit by a "pile driver" and where's the hull!?! Stay with it as he pans around the tank. Killed and buried at the sometime. I make no light of it.

Scroll down to 6 April, well you know as you just did it...
Video #2 STUGNA-P taking out a T-72 variant.

Video #3 T-72B1 "Pile Driver" Top Attack.

Video #9 T-72B3 "How about that cage" definitely traditional top attack. JAVELIN and NLAW like most other TA ATGW turret separation is a sure sign of them likely having been the cause of it.

I'm just making an educated guess here and more so with 5 APR Video #12
and possibly 6 APR Video #3 I feel was done by a precision munition along the line of our EXCALIBUR 155mm munition. It is CONFIRMED that they both have and have used them. Note dates of and in the article.

Grandson back to college in Savannah and CINCLANTHOME flying to Norfolk. Just Oscar (22yrs old!) the turtle and work for me for the next few days. Time to hit the rack!!

Regards,
Pat
