its also probably taken somewhere in the Baltic or Black Sea which, IIRC, dont even have things like continental shelves and dramatic drop offs.

It looks like a T-54, but I'm not 100% sure. It's a propaganda shot from the 60s.

It's a very cut and paste doctored shot in many areas. The masks and even some of the guys look pasted on.

S-Tank! IRRC the Swedes actually designed the outside fuel tanks (diesel) to act as hydrostatic shock dampening armor.

Interesting. If you had 45degree cones, 8" at the base, made of simple terracotta clay like a plant pot, would they deflect the shaped charge of an RPG? It's liquid copper or something right? Ceramic is pretty hard, just glue a bunch of cones all over it. Chisel off when damaged, glue on another.

My unedumacated guess would be that it depends on how much of the penetration is due to the force of the impact from molten copper on a small area (like a jet of water cutting steel by ablation) and how much from the superheating of the copper 'jet' actually melting it's way through like a plasma torch. Ceramics (of the non-Chobham kind, that is) would be a poor defender against narrowly focused kinetic force but might be a good insulator against extreme heat.

If you put it like that it is no good. The point is to defocus for the next layer of armor so the shape is maybe more important that the brittleness of the material.
