I do not see any kevlar fabric on on the inside of the Abrams, just painted metal

Compare it to T-90M Challenger 2 Leopard 2, it’s quite obvious even in low quality pics

Chieftain and Challenger 1 do not have spall liners
The brown liner was used just for sound dampening


Like you can can clearly see it’s not kevlar, it looks more like foam

The spall liner of the M1 series is integrated into the walls themselves, its a hard rubberized material over top of a kevlar liner that is fused to the hull itself.

You could list every tank in the entire game above about 9.0 and your list would probably be 99% accurate but its totally just a coincidence that they havent added spall liners until right now and it only shows up on the T-90M and none of the other new tanks

Yeah yeah yeah, painted steel looks like rubberized coating lmao

But adding thess stupid anti-spall liners is not a good choice for everyone, just remove t-90m’s anti-spall liner, and everyone can enjoy the game. Full anti-spall liners should never be introduced to this game, for some good situation, you can add a little, that’s acceptable, like add the auto loader anti-spall liner for mbts with low survivability, like these chinese mbts.

I opened a report for the Leo2A5 onwards, Leo 2PL and the STRV122:

The Wiki article is stating it in the Leo 2A5 onwards and they are also providing sources:

Lets see if we get anything from that from Gaijin…

Doing gods work

It was marked as duplicate with:
“It’s already reported for all Leo 2A5 and newer” while linking to 2A7 report…

Yeah…at least I had some sources in mine and was listing more than just the 2A7, because this started with the 2A5…

Probably cause there’s an internal report as well.

well for the sake of REAL ballance shouldn’t someone look into the spall liners of soviets, chinese, french and israeli mbt’s? cuz i’m pretty sure germans, americans and brits weren’t the only ones to deploy such tactics…

Probably. Sweet word meaning nothing in this case. Better be safe and double check than be sorry later
