Thank you very much Mindstorm. I've been trying to locate sources of early Soviet theoretical research into reactive armor for some time now.Mindstorm wrote:Oh yes sure ....Rpg type 7v wrote:Izrael invented era/nera in 70s too.
You should have said that in the '50s to Б. В. Войцеховский and В. Л. Истомин ,them would have had certainly a thing or two to say to you on the subject.......
The entire theoretical architecture and the first working sample of ERA ( «Рамка» form the group lead by А. И. Платов which represented also the real prototype, virtually identical, of the "Blazer" ERA consutructed and used by Isreal more than 13 years after) was entirely and firstly developed at МФТИ and НИИ Стали as results of very advanced works going back even to the late 40s years !
This isn't the first time Soviet theoretical military science has been proven to be way ahead of its time.
