what you are describing seems very complex- and they'll probably reserve those for the armata. and afaik relik, which is the best ERA on any T-90 variant, is not remote detonated, and the Relikt lite on the hull which i assume is what you are talking about should'nt be any different.Werewolf wrote:I wanted to ask about the feature that the side ERA on the hull front can be extended. I assume to have better protective capability, to predetonate incoming ATGM's, RPG's and HEAT tank rounds before they actually can reach the hull, for threats to the tank that are to an angle to the tank that the enemy can see the side of the tank. Is this system automated or does this system adjust the Angle of ERA Tiles to the threat via Gunners sight/commanders sight to always have the highest possible coverage of side armor and not open gaps for enemy?
But for armata it would be very possible, the rounds would now occupy the entirety of the middle hull so it has to be protected very well esp for situations that expose the tank to much closer threats like in urban combat where precision hits aren't very uncommon. however while possible i think
a predetonating ERA tile would be redundant against HEAT based weapons(western HEAT based weapons that is, since they are generally weak as p!ss- see peasant single charge copper(rpg-7 more like) m830 vs triple charged and possibly DU/W 3BK29M) with an effective APS in place, and of more use against APFSDSs and EFPs.
