Turtle shell tank

Not sure it can be described as a tank since that shed they built on its roof means the turret cant traverse, at best it is now something along the lines of a tank destroyer.
On the other hand it is neither as it has been blown up, seems the Ukrainians geolocated its hideout and blew it up...

No idea what passes for thinking in Russia these days, but my first impression was that it looked like a medieval battering ram which seems in line with the age of some of their equipment and tactics.
 
It looks like they built a shed on top of the tank
I have been wondering about this as they apparently have to use two drones to kill it, what would happen if they effectively used a Molotov cocktail on it as it would put the crew in a pressure cooker.
Alternatively, drone dropped AT mines.

Makes sense to use AT mines but I do agree with I3 they do look like a shed on tank treads

Now that they have added mine rollers, they look almost like a two-story house on tracks.

They are nearly twice the height of the original tank which will make then great artillery targets as well as for ATGM crews.
 
As is always the case, technology only gives a few weeks advantage before it is negated by counter measures.
I have been impressed by the survivability of western MBTs so far, in every case I have seen one hit significantly the crew has successfully evacuated the vehicle.

Seems the answer is to use a bigger drone...

I wouldn't be surprised if the Russians had a 3 turret tank come to the fight and be utterly useless.
 
Here is another breakdown on them...
Love that they nicknamed them Blyatmobiles.
