Only math i see is here is the likelihood of gaijin implementing this mantlet model = 0%

you right.

They don’t have to implement anything. All of the armour plates are there, but somehow the mantlet is still ~250mm.

Bit like 250mm of nera = 30mm of ke protection lol

Guys, I have a question - what is it on the lower frontal part on the Challenger 2 and Challenger 3 series tanks. I searched the Internet and did not find any information, can you tell me what it is?

I think it’s a mounting point for the blade earth moving attachment (BEMA). Maybe some cable is connected there.

Thanks)

it’s a plug, it goes all the way through the tank, might be for cables when needed.

Cool video about the Challenger 2 from Vickers. They show some footage inside the factory and share some parts of the development.

I would like to have seen a suggestion for barracuda to function properly giving the brits a flavor at top tier ground but still plus 1

Is there not already a barracuda suggestion?

Look at this BS
