so evereything except a hull is different :P

in other words it's a tank that can kill an MBT with relative ease but can't survive a hit...

i would call this a TD :P

Those are Kontakt-5 ERA, which means it can take some hits.

isn't ERA only effective against shaped charges ?

That's what it's primarily intended to combat, but this type of ERA does provide some protection from kinetic penetrators as well. It has armored plates above it that shear off at an angle when activated and that can damage the round or knock it off center, increasing the chances that the conventional armor will survive the impact.

It's not without its problems, but it's a very good way to cheaply improve the protection on aging designs like these.
