    Factors include the effect it has on visibility regarding drones, and the ability for the crew to get into and out of the turret positions.

    I rather suspect it is more a thing to protect the tanks from tiny drones that drop hand grenades and smash optics, or suicide drones that fly into the tops of tanks with a 10kg warhead trying to smash optics and antenna and damage ERA and APS bits.

    It should also effect Javelin and Bill 2 and Copperhead, but also hand thrown HEAT warhead grenades... and indeed top attack submunitions... which Ukraine would have inherited from soviet stocks...

    Nice.

    What he didn't mention was that the log is attached to the tracks, normally because the tracks are just spinning and not getting a grip on the mud or snow the vehicle is sitting on.

    Another problem is when the vehicle has bellied out and the ground under the tracks is soft and keeps getting worn away by the tracks spinning and the vehicle is sitting on its belly.

    By attaching the log to the tracks, and the tracks go around they scrape out the dirt or snow that is under the tracks and the belly of the vehicle... when it gets to the back they detach it and carry it back around to the front... each time it goes through it removes a layer of dirt or snow and improves the tanks ability to drive out on its own... eventually weight is restored to the tracks and it can drive out.

    The film is edited.
    In the original, it was an SPG-9 shot intercepted.

    I was suprised that Kyle Mizokami seemed to be paying due respect to a competent Russian system, but alas....

    Russia’s most modern tank, the vaporware T-14 Armata main battle tank, uses a new system known as Afghanit.

    Yeah... he's still a censored who is only too willing to resort to the mandatory put-downs and insults.

    It'll be vaporware till it's in service, then he and others like him will call it all kinds of bad names and crap.

    Why does anyone give a time and day to these fags?
