Interesting estimations but what kind of armor does it have? Not Chogum.
60 KILOMETERS per hour, not 60 miles per hour.
No it doesn't have Chobham, but that's only one form of composite armor. The Leclerc, Leopard, and Merkava don't use "Chobham" but their own home grown composite armor, probably similar to Chobham. With this they all achieve a comparable level of protection.
60 kph? (I just got owned
Do you know any tests I can look at for these new composite armors? We know chobham works because we've seen ordainence bounce off of it. Do we know these other type's work?
