    Kindly backup your claim with evidence. So that we can learn from such a armour expert like yourself. What are your suggestions regarding armour design in AK and how can we improve it?

    Have seen Merkava Armor it has most advance and modular armored shell. Modular means if any particular piece or part got attacked it can be replaced with minimum effort.

    Merkava 4 turret shell:

    right rear ammunition bin most likely detonated allegedly through an RPG hit through the rear hatch.

    note the israeli tank is about 10 tonnes heavier than the ak and the turret was designed to have ceramic plating built into the turret whilst the ak has it on outside of the turret as it was not designed like that.
