REally? Reactive armor doing what it's meant to do? err... you do know that they don't tile ERA UNDER THE BUSTLE RACK correct?
Anti tank rockets, Even sophisticated dual charge stand off weapons can be defeated by breaking up the gas jet.
This is why they put the bustle racks around three sides of the turret! it's cheaper than ERA and serves essentially the same purpose breaking up the
gas jet by disrupting proper arming distance...
As for the stuff being blown off the tank... it looks EXACTLY like an anti tank rocket hitting a tank in the bustle rack!! probably because that is
what is shown.
As far as the OP's comment saying he has a physics degree and understands how weapons work... Well first off of the OP had any sort of degree from a
college .... he should get his money back. He has stated in another thread that Israel has not signed a treaty with us so they don't have an
ALLEGIANCE with us....
Now there are so many things wrong with that sentence which is a fairly accurate paraphrase of SEVERAL posts where he reiterated this statement like
saying it enough would make it a fact. I won't even go into correcting the half a dozen Conceptual, grammatical, syntax, and past tense versus
present tense errors that routinely appear in his writings. Nor his infantile sub FAUX news conceptual framework of how HE THINKS the world works.
It would be best for the OP to remember that when LYING about one's credentials and education one must have the INTELLECTUAL horsepower to pull of
the lie for it to be worth doing....
He obviously has so little understanding of military arms and how they do what they do as to make it useless for me to continue trying to educate him.
Also just to point this out the rpg 29 is not NEW or top of the line or state of the art and the abilities being ascribed to it in this thread are
AMUSING but not REALISTIC. Oh and just because wiki says something is an abrams killer does not mean much of anything. Try fas.org or one of several
other great reference sites for reference info. It could really help the general caliber of the posts I have seen in this thread.
So many arm chair mechanized warfare experts in here so little factual information
