...but no one told them where the blast would come from.

 

Enter the Obj. 726 279, the tank that was designed to survive a nuclear blast...by ramming the bomb with its mantlet.

 

 

...

 

Of course, a decade later, they outdid themselves:

Really, what is it with the newer tanks with their very complex layout of overlapping gun mantlets? Older HT's like IS-7 only has 3 layers of spaced armor at most, IS-4 only has 2, American T110-series tanks only have 1, while the newer Pz. VII actually has 4.

Well thats mostly because Older HTs were based upon facts and real life data, the new ones are however based upon delusional fantasy of the developers

 

Truthfully most people dont aim at the mantlets anyway, due to overlapping armour even APCR will have a slim chance of passing through, heck even Leopard might block a hit in the mantlet

Yeah, the only tanks you should ever shoot at the mantlet of are ones which have mantlets specifically known to be weak, or weak in a particular spot.

I'm interested in mantlets because that's where you sling HE to break their guns. Or at least, that's what you'd do against older tanks.

 

These new tanks can, without accounting for splash, swallow a 4005 HESH shell undamaged with their mantlets.

Wow, that's a tier 8.

 

Type 59 really deserves its epic reputation

One must ask, Where are they fitting so much armour, this is like getting into a paradox

Yeah that's 12 layers of spaced armor right there...equivalent to 5 meters of armor. That's 5 meters' worth of spaced armor in a space that's not even a meter long.

To put it into perspective, the length of a Renault FT is 5 meters; thus the Obj. 277 managed to cram an entire Renault FT-sized block of armour plate, with 11 layers of air in between, in less than a meter of space.

 

And that is the secret of Stalinium: they made spaced armor so dense that it generates a gravitational field that attracts shells towards it

 

Addendum: looking at the Type 59 armour layout, I'd say Maoium exists too, but only in prem tanks.
