Complexities of Add-on Armour and Remedial Measures
Keywords: Antitank ammunition, Armoured fighting vehicles
AbstractArmoured fighting vehicles are under constant threat against newly developed antitank ammunition having higher penetration capabilities. Enhancing protection levels of existing tanks is associated with increased weight and volume penalties, affecting tactical mobility of the tank. The complexities arising in designing add-on armour are described along with the remedial measures. It is observed that even optimum add-on design calls for minor compromise in the usage of a battle tank.
