I think the PULAT APS thing has a major design flaw.For those who are curious about the fully equipped version of the TİYK-M60T modernization
Volkan-M Fire Control System,
New Tank command and control information system,
Remote-controlled stabilized weapon platform,
Additional armor protection,
Tank driver vision system,
Crew seats and new interfaces,
New type of fire extinguishing and explosion suppression system,
New Life support system,
New type auxiliary power pack,
PULAT Active protection system,
TEPES - Telescopic E/O System,
YAMGÖZ Situational awareness and multi-mode surveillance system integrated with weapon and hardkill systems,
TLUS New generation tank laser warning system.
A tank should be able to bust through a wall, climb a steep incline. The PULAT bump could very well be damaged or limit the tanks ability to climb steep inclines.
A 120mm cannon maximum direct fire range is 4-5km, 35mm and 30mm are lower than that.35mm effective range is 4-5km, vs. 2-3km of 30mm.
Both are limited to 2-3km.
