BTA-4 apfsds is the improvement over type-2M that was standard in the MBT 2000 series
600mm penetration (minimum) @ 0 degree/ frontal arc for a tungsten round should scare many in the neighborhood.

One of the major drawbacks that the Oplot suffered was the ammo. It could fire BM-42 Mango (430mm certified penetration), less than what the basic POF tungsten round could do (460mm certified penetration).

Sure hope this reply wasn't posted through Internet explorer.

Any reference to how much mm of protection does VT-4 have.

@PanzerKiel are you allowed to comment on VT-4's ability to withstand NBC and EW attacks? What if we explode one of our tactical neutron bombs while this tank is nearby? Does that thick armor provide any protection against incoming neutrons? My guess is that this beast works perfectly well in cohesion with Nasr, and the possibility of Nasr exploding in close quarters is what instigated this purchase. Interestingly, just recently there was a news item that China has tested 'low level' nuclear weapons

Dear

Of course I'm not allowed. But even then, I'll pitch in whenever I see the you guys are about to go in an entirely wrong direction on any topic.

I made a light hearted comment a few days ago on 9 Sep ... Regarding my ears getting affected by a muzzle blast of a big gun.... It was with the same purpose...
