Tank Armor Thread - History, Analysis, & Discussion

Appears there is no generic thread to discuss tank armor and issues within the game currently. So, let’s discuss!


There is a lot of ongoing discussion related to the DU armor inserts and spall liners for the Abrams. Those have their own threads currently, so I would like for that stuff to be contained to those threads (for now).

This threads’ purpose will be to discuss the armor profile and usefulness of armor types but isn’t specific to a single vehicle which allows more room for discussion than the limited scope of other topics available.

I’d like to start with the Type 99 series (I think?) it appears based on evidence that there are composites in the roof armor that are not seen in-game.

Does anyone know the source of this image?
