so the hope is that the FPV doesnt go off and bounces off or something right?

so the hope is that the FPV doesnt go off and bounces off or something right? there is no way a pg-7 warhead doesnt penetrate a ural even from a meter standoff

      The guy in the red is still alive, and can be seen moving.
      the guy in the blue is the one who flew, and i cant tell if he is still moving, or if its the fire on him making it look like he's still alive.
      i can only hope that he is still alive.

    It might take a fair bit of the sting out of it from half a metre, 2ft or so. But the purpose of slatted armour against shaped charge warheads was that they would deform the projectile so it goes 'shit everywhere' instead of forming the big burning jet. The problem is on the drones, they've been messing around with some 3D printed warheads that look even scarier and there's still plenty of PG-VR tandem stuff out there along with the Panzerfausts

          Original slat armor from the Vietnam War through GWOT wasn't about standoff although occasionally that might have helped; it was about crushing or short-circuiting the type of fuze a RGP7 uses, or sometimes distorting the jet if that failed.
          So there are a lot of reasons, and misunderstood reasons, a vatnik could have floating around in their mind as they build this stuff.

          the ironic twist is that when they replaced the nose fuze for the DIY friendly wire contacts, even proper slat armor wouldn't achieve the purpose against FPVs

    Its just a form of spaced armor. Some drones have shaped charges, some are just plain frag grenades, and with a yard of standoff a frag shouldn't harm the passengers in even a lightly armored vehicle. People get a letterboxed view of this war because of how footage skews things, sure there are fancy custom FPVs around and that footage gets a lot of interest, but the vast majority of kill drones on both sides are still just dropping frags and mortars.

    the notion that it was Ukrainians in a bespoke, lovingly recreated replica Willys MB instead of just russians in a UAZ is probably one of the funniest copes of the war. this was conclusively disproven in the original thread, but that you would attempt it after we now have dozens of videos of russians charging trenchlines in chinese golf carts and urals makes you nothing short of a comedic genius. Bravo sar.

          Accumulated semen injections (pumped into each other before battle, a nutrition trick invented by Serbs hence their fondness for Muscovite nut custard) are usually digested as they rise into the intestine, but external blast waves overwhelm the sphinctral check valve causing "rosebud blowout".

          The worst cases resemble giant red squid. Standard first aid is zip tie then snip the exposed bits to reduce the odds of infection. Traditional red rubber torniquets blend with the injury so it appears like a typical post-bromance prolapse.

    I'd assume that the purpose is to make it (slightly) harder for fpv drones with shaped charges to hit a specific spot?

    Hitting the engine compartment is "easy", when you can just bang your drone into it, but much harder when you have to angle your attack from further away.
