      Chains like slates aren't meant to detonate warheads. Detonating them early tends to give shaped charge warheads more penetrating power. Instead they are designed to knock the rocket of course or cut it up outright. Chains are used where you have moving parts like the turret in this case.

      I recall seeing on an Azov interview that they're supposed to get caught in the blades of a quadcopter/fpv drone and take them down. Not sure how effective it is, since there are a lot of videos of drones hitting them regardless

        FPV drones at their terminal phase are too fast to be stopped just by damaging the blades, especially not if it’s right in front of the actual target.

    Like, this probably would make it harder for an FPV to OHKO the tank, but they’re still perfectly capable of hitting it in the side and tracking it (or maybe even penetrating, depending on the angle and if the ERA is still present and the warhead used) at which point it will get hit many more times. And we don’t know how well the back is protected, either. And this setup appears to prevent the turret from being rotated more than ~45 degrees to each side, and might make firing machine guns hazardous due to ricochets, which is probably bad for offense. This is a sidegrade at best.

        In this case, a tank with a hard-kill APS system calibrated to target slower targets and maybe a smaller overhead cage to protect against attacks from directly overhead would be superior, though neither Ukraine nor Russia field APS in bulk. Birds are unlikely to try and land on a loud, fast moving, and hot metal object, and while APS may be a hazard for friendly infantry in urban combat, the open terrain of Ukraine should be good for it.

              There’s no APS in Ukraine because no one has given anything super new to Ukraine, and Russia cannot afford to field new stuff in relevant numbers.

              If APS is so bad, why is everyone developing it and sticking it onto their vehicles?

              Trophy is stated to have stopped a Kornet in 2014 and more in US testing. Even if you don’t believe that for some reason, even an RPG-7 projectile flies 7+ times faster than an FPV and has like half the frontal area. If it can shoot down RPGs, it can probably shoot down FPVs once the programming is changed to stop filtering out slow projectiles or something.

                Anonymous

                The problem with APS in this instance isn't that projectiles that are fast would be hard to counter. It's the opposite. A drone could be flying into the tank from anywhere from 5kmh to an excess of 200kmh. Having the APS detect and counter something moving so slow is very hard, because most objects near the tank can move with the same speed. You'd probably need something like optical recognition for this to work. It is a whole different can of worms from the traditional radar detection of incoming projectiles.

                Like, aren’t most FPVs going to be moving at over 100 kph? It’s going to be hard to catch up with a moving tank if you are flying extremely slowly. You could have the radar start looking for slower objects when the tank is at rest, and the landscape isn’t moving by quickly. Extremely slow-moving drones could probably be downed by the commander shooting them as well.

                The problem is noise. Even with faster moving projectiles there's a shitload of filtering happening. When you start monitoring velocities around 100kmh the noise increases exponentially and if you wanted to actually target something with radar with that much noise you have to do some crazy next level filtering

                Also, if you are flying at 70kmh to reach a tank traveling at 60kmh the speed registered by the radar is 10kmh. Only the relative speed is what matters.

                Reaching a 70 kph tank with a 60 kph drone would be kind of hard, wouldn’t it? And FPV drones aren’t solid objects, either. Even a slow moving drone’s propellers would be moving at very high speeds, which is one of the reasons why it is hard to make stealth helicopters. You could have the APS radar try to pick that up.

              It's like late WWII battleships putting up machine guns on every empty spot to counter aircraft attacks. Eventually, the protective system becomes more prominent than the main guns. For tanks, APS means friendly infantry can't get too close with your tanks, negating their protection in urban areas. No, it is the last gasps of the MBT's march to obsolence.

          And if you insist on an all-round cage, the cage should be extended to the sides (maybe with chains hanging down?), and the turret should be removed for a casemate with a 152mm (if you aren’t going to rotate it anyways, you might as well go big).

    If this is a real picture it could actually work in many instances. The distance between the cope cage and the body of the tank is probably wide enough to work against many of the munitions carried on drones. Does anyone know the length of the jet produced by the most common RPG warhead used?

      The picture looks fairly grainy so it’s hard to tell, but there does not appear to be any cage over the actual hull. An FPV hitting the side of the tank would not encounter any spaced armor and might be able to go right through, detonating the ammo rack (depending on how much ERA is present and what type).

      Real answer (probably): The crew needs to get in and out of the tank, grenades roll of the top and if an rpg hits it there's more space between slats to the point that it wont be able to penetrate anymore.

        Here's the funny part: these turtle tanks are being made from chassis without functional guns. They're purely transports, and the infantry rides on top of the hull.
        This means you don't actually have to kill the tank to end its mission. The sheet metal they're building these things out of isn't armor. It can't stop shrapnel or bullets. The infantry being carried still gets minced by whatever you throw at it.

    In all honesty, this is better than their shitty sheet metal barns for protecting against FPV drones. Not by much though.

    The chains are just useless weight, most of the bars are spaced way too close together so they cant effectively deform an RPG warhead, and the bars that ARE properly spaced, are also so rusty that it will probably just shatter to pieces.
