Yes indeed, modern KE penetrators (APFSDS) are so strong, they never simply "bounce off" an angular armor plate, that's not possible, because they are simply too powerfull. They have such a poweful penetrating potential that they will always penetrate the first layers of the composite armor (the surface). That's why such thing as "shot-trap" doesn't exist on modern MBT's anymore. Because the point of modern composite armor is not to delfect/ricochet a APFSDS penetrator, but to slow the penetrating KE rod down so much, that it will lose its potential penetrating power and eventually stop completely, so that it will get stuck in the armor itself - but it won't fully penetrate and so the crew will not be harmed. Whether a composite armor "works" (as it is intended) or not depends on many different factors, but that's another story to be told. But the fact remains, that a APFSDS penetrator will never bounce off an angulare armor. It will always penetrate the first layer and if the armor works as it is intended, then the penetrator gets stuck in the armor and it won't go any further. So that the crew will not be harmed and the tank is not destroyer and it is still operational. But as to how much it penetrates into the armor depends on the individual armor applique itself. Sure, the tank will be damaged to some degree, but that can be repaired after the battle in a few hours. It is at least much cheaper to only repair a part of the tank, than to built another one entirely from scratch again.

The T-90 is much more in the need of some major upgrades, as it is far behind, and more outdated than the M1 Abrams, or any other western MBT for that matter. Since after the fall of the Soviet Union, Russian tanks have not been modernized to modern standards. Unlike western MBT's which have continuously been upgraded and redesigned throughout the last years.

The T-90 has the worst protection, because it still uses the outdated Kontakt-5 ERA from the 1980's, which is outdated by now. It may have been very effective back in the 80's, but it's insufficient for today's protection standards. Now, the M829A3 and DM53 (used by the Abrams and Leopard) are both able to penetrate the Kontakt-5 ERA (and of course the basic armor of the tank). In fact, even the earlier M829A2 from the early 90's was already credited of being able to penetrate the K-5)

On top of this, the 125mm gun that is used by all Russian tanks, has not received any upgrades or any new tank rounds capable of penetrating the front armor of the Leopard 2A6 or the M1A2 SEP. At least not the turret front. Maybe it could penetrate the lower hull front of the western MBT's, at close range, but I'll leave this open to debate.

Although the Russians did come up with a few new prototypes recently, such as the T-95 (with an impressive 152mm gun), or the T-90AM presented in 2011, which has the new developed Relikt ERA armor. But neither of them have entered service yet, and probably will remain as such for the next few years.

Nope, both the m5 and M4 would most porbably lose in a head-to-head fight against the Hetzer. Maybe the hetzer isn't facing it YET in this photo, but it is just about to turn.

The stuart's tiny 37mm gun can not penetrate the Hetzer's front armor, which is about 100-110mm effective because of good slope. Neither can the Sherman penetrate it with its short 75mm gun which penetrates only like 80mm with standard APBC ammo. Although the Hetzer has only 50mm thin armor plating but it's sloped @60° and that doubles the effect.
The M4 or M5 typically can't destroy it from the front. On the other hand, the hetzer's 75mm gun could theoretically penetrate both American tanks from over 1,100m still...

tl;dr Stuart and Sherman are pretty much screwed. :P (except if they out flank the hetzer, then he will be screwed)

And we know that not a single CHR2 was ever "destroyed" by enemy fire. we never claimed otherwise. However we only discussed about that one CHR2 that was penetrated through the lower front armor in al-Amarah. That's all.
So once gain, I don't see your point. What are you trying to dispriove here? The CHR2 probably has got the most successful combat history of any other modern MBTs so far.

If the Leopard 2 had an obvious shot-trap like this, do you not think they would have noticed and fixed this problem by now? Do you seriously think it would be one of the world's best selling MBT if it had such an obvious shot-trap? Please think a little and use your logic before making such arguments.

people who still speak of these shot-traps tend to make their conclusions from WW2 era tanks, not realizing the differences in both armor and penetrator tech between now and then. People like that are lacking or missing GREAT amount of newest informations of modern tank warfare. Modern APFSDS rounds, as a general rule, don't deflect like in WW2.

Modern long-rod kinetic energy penetrators (APFSDS) behave in a different way than old traditional solid shot armour-piercing rounds used in WW2.

Modern penetrators are so powerful in penetrating capabilities nowadays, they don't just "bounce off the armor and leave a scratch on it" they will now always penetrate in the first place and "go inside the armor package" anyway, they can not be stopped from penetrating the first layers. BUT, modern armor is designed to stop it from reaching the base armor. That's how it works today.

That's why the Leopard 2A5/ A6 with edge-shaped turret front does not form a shot-trap since it doesn't deflect the penetrators outwards to hit the hull or turret ring.

lol I was joking when I said it's "1980 ish". Sure, having no blowout panels is a drawback but it's still one of the TOP 5 best protected MBTs today. And there already are solutions available to increase protection against mentioned threats.

Best solution would be APS (Activ protection System) working both in Soft and Hard Kill way, which will be very effective to defeat HEATs, APFSDS, ATGMs and even top attacks from high trajectory like Javelin or EFP warheads from artillery ammunition like "BONUS".

Seriously, i don't understand why they don't upgrade CHr2 with cased ammo and "blow-out panels" like the Leopard and M1 have. (the panels that would blow out forcing the blast upwards instead of towards the crew compartment). Even if the ammo is seperated but putting it with the crew exposed is dangerous.

Modern Western MBTs without blowout panels is so 1980-ish.

For the Germanz it sure is, since they were outnumbered like 3:1, 5:1, they had to compensate with something, be it better quality/armor protection etc. If they lost a tank, they couldn't replace it so easilly like the Americans did with the mass produced Sherman.

And honestly, by this time (44/45) the panther's armor wasn't that good anymore. Even a T34-85 or Sherman 76w could already penetrate the front armor at 600-800 m distance, let alone the side armor at 2km+ o.O

@Stuka,

I just wanted to add some things, the ARL 44 has actually 120mm front armor plate, sloped at 45° = it's almost 180mm effective... strong enough to resist the old 88 gun of the Tiger I. ;)

And the tiger's side "protection" really isn't any better, let's be honest, what is it gonna stop exactly? 80mm is still a joke :P

I prefer the Russian IS-4 and IS-7 heavy prototypes which had both 170-200mm effective protection from the sides and even more from the front... but then again these tanks were built two years after WW2 and should not be compared to the Tigers.

Sorry i'm late, but anyway...

any Russian built tank with the 125mm gun and newest ammunition can indeed destroy a regular Leopard 2, Challenger 2 or M1A2 from the sides or rear, as they have only 200-300mm RHA protection against KE at these points.

Modern Russian rounds such as the 3BK21B and 3BM44M can penetrate 600-650-750 mm RHA equivalency already. check this out

En.wikipedia.org

But there are some promising modernizations and upgrades for additional side protection and more survivability, such as the Leopard 2a7+, Leopard REVOLUTION and the Turkish NEXT GENERATION add-on package, which provides about ~600mm LOS at the turret sides.

picture: Defesaglobal.files.wordpress.com

A regular T-80, T-90 or T-90A/S (on T-72 basis) has most vulnerability at the rear-sides, only like 100mm steel armor plates which can be penetrated by even 25mm & 30mm auto cannons in AFVs.

Sorry, but this idea is retarded. The front area of a tank IS already best protected by thickest armor, it's not necessary to put the engine there. But the rear compartment needs the engine block much more, because this is the weakest part of a tank. that's why the entire engine block should be kept in the much weaker rear, so in case a projectile penetrates there, the engine is supposed to absurb most of the impact caused by the projectile and safe the crew's life.

Now that the engine has been removed from the weakest part, there is absolutely NOTHING to protect the crew when a penetration.

@aidas2: well, actually the Russians solved this probloem shortly after the end of ww2, just by making the side and rear armor more sloped on the IS-3 and IS-7.

Did you know, that the IS-7 (1946) had BETTER armor at the flanks, than the King Tiger has at the FRONT? That's Amazing, don' you think? The IS-7 has 300mm LOS at the flanks, whereas the Tiger II had onlly ~85mm LOS at the flanks... and the Russians only achieved this by making the side armor sloped at 60° as well. The IS-3 had its side armor sloped at 60° too so it had about 180mm LOS at the flanks... It's so simple yet so effective!

Just imagine if the King Tiger (and all other German tanks) had its side armor sloped at 60° as well, (80mm @ 60° = 160mm LOS) because armor at 60 degrees doubles the Line of Sight throuhg the armor and gives +50% additional protection to the armor effectiveness...

With such good tank designs, the Germans maight could have defeated the Soviet army within weeks. But for some reason, German tank enginners never tought of this idea... idk why.

Well, T-90 is just a upgraded/modernized T-72 with new Contact-5 (ERA) and Shtora Active Protection System.

It was renamed to T-90, because after the huge tank battle in Iraq 1991 (Operation Desert Storm) The T-72 got very bad reputation (because so many of them have been massacred and slaughtered by the M1's).

And the Russians feared they'd lose customers so they changed its name to T-90. Also, please don't call the T-72 crappy. it was in fact the world's best tank, when it entered service with the Soviet army in the 1970's. but it had no chance against the much more modern M1A1 Abrams, unequal fight.

I will never understand why people argue which is the best tank. "Yeah My weapons is better" - "Not ture *******, my weapons are better" That's just so childish. As long as a weapon can kill, I think it's effective. And yes Panzert, the Merkava 4 indeed is one of the best protected tanks in the world, i can tell by the 1,10m thick armor block on the turret which absorbs every hit like a sponge! Not to forget the Israelis are very advanced in developing APS that makes the tank close to invulnerable. And no worries, you don't have to be a fanboy to make suggestive posts. :)

I have seen the official armor layout of most MBTs and one thing is for sure, none of them is invincible. They are ALL vulnerable from the sides and rear, only good protected at the front...so whatever.

Perhaps invisible tanks? Nano armor that is able to health/repair itself? Guns fire high-energy ionized Plasma shells that can cut through even the thickest armor?

And I think Germany still makes the BEST tanks in the world but that's only my opinion. They always did and always will.

@jrgl_cuchallain but it proves that even the best protected tanks are still vulnerable to modern anti-tank threats, unless they have a force field (shild) or APS. The CHR2 may performed very well against outdated cold-war weapons (RPG-7), just as good as the M1 Abrams performaed very well against outdated T-72 during Operation Desert Storm in the Gulf War 91... but they aren't battleproven by fighting outdated weapons. Every Western MBT (Leclerc, Leo2) could have done the same. Anyway, when they face new weapons from today (RPG-29 or T90, T80U) they can be destroyed just as easily too. The insurgents know the weakspot now: Simply use tandem warhead that has about 700mm penetration performance, aim at lower front plate = armor will most likely be penetrated. And I have posted a picture once here to the group, that mentions the RPG-29 can also penetrate the T-90 front armor even with Kontakt-5!

But on the other hand, @aidas2, it's a well known fact that the floor armor plate is the weakest part of every MBT, not only CHR2. And all modern MBTs are very vulnerable from the sides just as well. The standard M1 Abrams could even be penetrated by RPG-7s, which the CHR2 could withstand!...

Many M4 Sherman tanks during WW2 were marked with a big white star symbol directly over the Ammo Racks where the ammunition was housed, soon the Germans found out that always when they hit this spot the tank was blown up and exploded and burnt out. The Germans used this as a Aiming Point because it would usually blow up the ammunition, that's also why so many Shermans caught fire after the first hit. for this reason the star symbol was later removed from most Sherman tanks within the last war months xD

And the E-50 E-75s were also way ahead over Allied tanks, and I really mean WAY AHEAD (auto loader system, night scope devices, new range altitude optics etc).

Yes, overzised target that cannot be penetrated by any anti tank guns anyway. While the Allieds are just wasting their ammunition on targeting that monster, but doing no damage at all because they lack sufficient guns, the fast E-50 & E-75 tanks that were hiding/covering behind the Ratte are quickly rushing forwarth and spreading out over the battlefield like a fast growing virus and take out the Allied tanks which are still shocked by that huge giant machine. Meanwhile the big 280mm artillery naval cannons give heavy firesupport, which equals a entire Russian artillery battalion. Me262s and Horten Ho XVIII as interceptors are giving air support to protect it against bombers and other low flying ground attcking planes, while the Arado 234 turbojet bombers are sent to the French coast to attack the landing ships at the beaches to cut through Allied reinforcement lifeline.

Hello Phenixtri (: First of all, AFVs or APCs are not designed to fight against MBTs. Even if they have ATGMs (anti tank missiles) but that's only for defense. They are (as you have already pointed in your statement) mainly made to carry infantry to the battlefield and if needed to give fire support to the infantry. Unfortunately, no APC or IFV can really be protected well enough to resist modern tank guns. Have you ever seen how many mm RHA a modern tank gun can penetrate?

Take a look at this Moddb.com

As you can see, most tank guns today can penetrate over 600-700mm RHA armor, it is almost impossible to protect a light IFV against such powerful armaments. Only Main Battle Tanks themselves at 40-60 tons heaviness can be protected well enougn to resist such powerful guns. Although the German Puma APC comes the closest to the protection levels of a MBT. The Puma APC has the same modular armor protection as the Leoaprd 2A5/6 MBT. But I doubt that even the Puma could resist modern tank guns... they are just too powerful.

Nevertheless, APCs & IFVs are very good in their role, and the U.S. EFV can do the same job as every other APC can do, I am sure about that :)

What you mean is the E-50. There is Panther 2 and E-50, which are both different tanks. However this Panther type currently in closed beta is the Panther II prototype, but soon the E-50 will be added with all other E-series tanks ;)

Very massive and solide I guess? LoL just kidding, Hull front armor 150mm at a very low and high angle of inclination, Turret Cast variable thickness from 94 up to 210mm. The thickness of the gun mantlet even reached 350 mm!

But that's all no problem for further German post war tanks like E-75 or E-100 :P Theey would have guns with 150-170mm calibre size o.O

yeah but only if the crew is not killed my Sniper and Machien guns before, this APC has only 14mm armor and can be penetrated by even small fire arms. Only 7.62mm rounds are capable to make swiss cheese of it...

Maybe it's because of the angle from where we're looking at this tank plus it has turned the turret 170° to the right side which gives it additinal badas look and we can clearly see the armor thickness of the Kontakt-5 ERA on turret front also the pictue has a very good and sarp resolution so we can see all the nice details.

hey calm down bro. I did not mean AMAP_APS which is the Active Protection System. I was only talking about AMAP (Advanced Modular Armor Protection) which is the modular designed armour add-on package on the tank's turret. And it seems to be deeply influenced/derived from the Merkava 4's turret design (the thick add-on armour blocks on the front and sides of the turret). The T-95 is the first Russian tank in history that uses this kind of AMAP design which is commonly used by Western country's tanks. And no, Russians did not invent sloped armor, LOL that is ridiculous. Many french tanks did already have "sloped armour" BEFORE the Russians started to build their own tanks.

They wanted to buy Leo 2s in the first place. Unfortunately German Government at first refused to sell them but later in 2005 they made a new deal again and Germany then sold 298 ex-German Leopard 2A4s to Turkey, which are still in use with the turkish army til today.

And I'm sure the Leopard 2A4 will remain Turkey's MBT for the next few years, since the first prorotype of the MİTÜP Altay tank is NOT even built or tested yet lol.

Oh C'mon )= don't be that pessimistic. Have you never seen a real cowboy movie? these guys are crazzy sharp shooters and can aim very precise with their .45 revolver. They can shoot down apples from a tree 50 meters away with the first bullet. So of course he can hit the tank's most vulnerable soft spot. For example if he fires the first bullet to the tank's cannon tube and the bulled goes trhoguh the gun it may hit the ammunition and causes a huge explosion inside = tank dead. (=

WOW nice work guyse and good edditing! looks really great! the Elefant tank destroyed was also armed with the very powerful and high velocity 8,8 cm KwK L43 gun from the King Tiger right? IRL it could kill any allied tanks at range of 3,000 meters very accurate and precise.. too bad though this is only a unrealistic and bad balanced strategy game in which german tanks lost advantages/superiority in gun range, firepower and armour protection :(
