        I want them to progressively get larger the more they travel. like, they pick up different parts from other wrecked tanks and adds them to itself.

        I'm pretty sure there's a video game like this somewhere that had this option.

            It's getting tiresome to point out, but with the way Russia is organizing and never shaping these raids:
            most things that Russia sends out do not even get to their destination in the first place.
            They do not maneuver,
            they do not delegate sectors of fire to different vehicles in a column,
            they just drive forward, usually on a road.
            And that is all they need to do.
            None of these vehicles are expected to return. If they return, they will be reloaded with warm bodies and sent back out until they don't return.

            Final form of trying to foil drones would be my assumption. I suppose the rationalisation would be that it's an even less effective firing platform if it's entering the turret throw olympics because of a $200 Chinese drone and a rigged RPG munition.

            They allow the tank to survive far more close strikes by FPV drones. There's enough standoff (>20 cone diameters) between the shell and the vehicle on some of them to reduce the penetration of a PG-7's warhead notably to the point it might not penetrate the vehicle at all. It also stops the drone from actually being aimed at weakspots properly.
            Only around 1/5 drones find their target as is, and it takes multiple hits to destroy an MBT, so when you've got these cuck sheds on wheels with EW systems on top of them, you probably reduce the effectiveness of cheap drones drastically.
            Doesn't save them from artillery or ATGMs on the other hand, but it forces the Ukrainians into using more expensive and less available systems to reliably defeat.

              We'll probably see dedicated heavily up-armored EW vehicles who's only purpose is to firstly disrupt drones and act as a damage sponge for the drones it doesn't disrupt while on the attack. So pretty much a new class of dedicated armored vehicle.

              Ideally you would have it controlled remotely via a dedicated cable from a command tank or something, so you don't have to endanger the driver but doubt Russians don't care about that.

                There's not enough ATGMs to arm every platoon out there with enough missiles and launchers to stop an armored offensive. Terrain isn't optimal for them always either. They're heavy, clumsy systems that cost a shit-ton and can't just be spread around everywhere.
                Drones on the other hand, they're so cheap and plentiful even Ukraine can have them anywhere they need.
                >Anything that's going to kill the tank is going to go through that tinfoil paper without an issue.
                Too much standoff for smaller warheads and impossible to aim them accurately at weakpoints because it's sheet metal 3 meters from the turret rear.

                >They allow the tank to survive far more close strikes by FPV drones.
                No, it absolutely doesn't. If it's something that can kill the tank, the tin roof isn't going to do shit about it other than prevent anyone from leaving.

                It's not going through it, it's the standoff distance between it and the tank itself. On some of the turtle-tanks, the standoff is way to the right of this chart itself.

                Absolutely are. Further Russia does not have enough tanks left for any major armored operations and in fact can't even concentrate them near the front without them getting destroyed. Do you realize Russia has lost this war? Puttin a shed on a defective tank and driving it into a grey zone saturated with zero'd enemy artillery and rocketry as well as tank hunting AT javelin infantry and drones is a suicide mission for clowns.

                Where as MBT's are cheap, ubiquitous, light weight, and easily deployed everywhere?

                The Ukies have been using combinations of ATGM's and artillery (often assisted by observation drones mind) to butt frick Vatnik armor rushes pretty much the entire war. The recent increasing reliance on FPV drones is because of ammunition shortages due to US aid being held up and the Euros being slow to ramp up production. Not because ATGM's and artillery stopped being effective anti-armor weapons in this conflict.

                Your mistake is thinking Ukrainians only have US made ATGMs.

                >Your mistake is thinking Ukrainians only have US made ATGMs.
                Obviously not. But given the size of the US defense industrial base compared to most other countries, Uncle Sam is a major chunk of the available potential resupply pool. And I have a hard time believing the Ukies didn't burn through a lot of ATGM's while doing all that damage to the Vatniks during and after Avdiivka.

                Shells and air-defense are the big picture thing the US aid package is addressing, but I think they're also gonna be really glad to get another influx of Javlins.

          I can get behind that but that tells you that this unit:
          - didn't have a single actual tank available to use here instead.
          - does not have a way to repair a tank themselves and repair depots in the rear are already clogged up

          >What drove you to that conclusion?
          There's not enough ATGMs to arm every platoon out there with enough missiles and launchers to stop an armored offensive. Terrain isn't optimal for them always either. They're heavy, clumsy systems that cost a shit-ton and can't just be spread around everywhere.
          Drones on the other hand, they're so cheap and plentiful even Ukraine can have them anywhere they need.
          >Anything that's going to kill the tank is going to go through that tinfoil paper without an issue.
          Too much standoff for smaller warheads and impossible to aim them accurately at weakpoints because it's sheet metal 3 meters from the turret rear.

          [...]
          It's not going through it, it's the standoff distance between it and the tank itself. On some of the turtle-tanks, the standoff is way to the right of this chart itself.

          You can just shoot the cages with multiple RPGs or mortars or artillery you dumb autistic frick.

      Off the top of my head, both the gunner and commander are practically blind, the shed is made out of pot-metal, so it ads zero armour value, the engine and transmission would be a b***h to services, and on top of that, when the vehicles is dissabled the crew will have trouble bailing as the shed would not only contain smoke but also force them all to crawl to the front of the vehicle which is probably not going to be lots of fun, especially if they are on fire.

        russians don't use tanks for taking out AT teams, they use storm Z guys, recon drones and cluster artillery for that. Actually it's easier for RU to counter ATGM teams in trenches than mobile AT drones the ukrainians have.

        this thing has been explained as an anti drone shield to lead the line of BMP's with its jammers, recently two motorized brigades broke the line near adviika using such DIY anti drone measures.

      Great against drones with small caliber HEAT warheads, which are one of the greatest threats in modern warfare now.

      It's good if you are worried about drones more than anything else. Spaced armor is spaced armor, even if it's made out of junk and it's enough against drone-sized payloads.
      You've got to understand that just not getting blown up by drones before entering the grey zone is already a massive improvement for the average Russian assault unit. Any other drawbacks can come after that.

        But this isn't preventing that at all, if the payload is enough to blow up a tank, some corrugated sheets aren't going to do anything. If it's not, then it wasn't going to stop the tank to begin with. This serves no purpose whatsoever other than further impede visibility on those death traps.

            No relation to the tard helmet they put on top.

            Slat armor exists to counter basic RPG warheads. Guess what a lot of anti-tank drones use? RPG warheads.
            A non-modern RPG warhead is going to lose much of its ability to punch through if it blows its load too early.
            The visual cover also helps a lot, because the Ukrainian drones are targeting sights and the back of the turret. You don't even need an RPG warhead to kill a tank's eyes, while the latter is especially problematic because a direct hit can turret-toss the entire tank in one shot thanks to the ammo detonation weakness.

            This isn't slat armor, this isn't armor. This shit wouldn't stop a 9mm round. What in the world did your parents do to you?

              Made me go quickly re-educate myself on actual slat armor (the spaced armor). So yeah, I was wrong on the penetration reduction, mostly at least.
              The idea of slat armor is not to detonate the warhead before it hits the tank surface, but let the warhead pass through and merely deform the sides of the RPG before it hits the main armor, therefore fricking up the shaped charge formation process. If the warhead hits the slat cage on the tip and it detonates there, the explosion may likely shape the molten "spear" (the shaped charge) properly, which can then pierce through both the cage and the armor.

              The blyatmobil garage might still be worth it for the other aforementioned reasons though.

Is there a solution, a combination of solutions, etc which make these things useful combat assets? Because if the Russians can make tanks survivable in a modern battlefield than that can be improved and refined and become the new standard for tanks which will in turn lead to the creation of new doctrines for land war. Right now the tank itself is on trial and so far it hasn’t been looking good.

      homie it's called EW and the first world has been using it since the Cold War. Turtle tanks are a step back. They acknowledge an inability to control the battlefield thru multilayered defense (air power, ew, integrated defense systems, etc) and are instead adding a frickload of barrier (limiting the mobility and ability to fire) so that these can be used. Its more of a step backward to when the same was done for tanks in the past. Meanwhile the first world would deploy EW jammers to disable the cheap drones, total control of the air, high mobility arty to shoot and scoot and smart munitions for hard targets. And thats before we even discuss proper drones with real payloads doing loitering ops

      what the actual frick are you talking about? how is this even relevant AS a tank? it's a cobbled together Black person rigged close range EW platform with no offensive role.

      the most you could say about this relating to tanks on the modern battlefield is that they need anti drone systems. wow, big revelation. meanwhile the only reason these things exist is the grinding attrition of the war starved ukraine of the means of quickly dispatching them (pending resupply) with conventional munitions and that still doesn't seem to help much as the examples of these monstrosities are invariably mobility killed husks.

      Honestly they might even stop the first drone. The second's probably going to have a clear run though. No good in a drone orgy like you'd see on a major advance but maaaaaybe a little utility in some of the single vehicle stalking stuff, where it's more likely to be an opportunistic drone strike than a concerted effort. If you can take the debuff to dignity associated, of course.

            nope, unlike you I'm not attention starved and autistic enough to yap to myself then pretend someone said that to me just to vent all the contained autism. we were talking about weird mad max monstrosities in warfare, for the record.

            hope your parents are dead, I'd never wish it upon my worst enemy to conceive a son and raise him for a decade only for him to turn out to be an autistic waste of oxygen.

              newbie detected. Both the SAA and ISIS had tanks decked out in makeshift protection in an attempt to increase camouflage and survivability against drones and RPGs. ISIS had tanks that legit looked like some hippy white girl and her pothead bf got ahold of and tried to beautify it by hanging and welding a bunch of shit to it.

              Also, the tinfoil these tanks are wrapped in is gonna do jackshit against shape charges, it’s mostly just to protect against low yield drone drop munitions, protect dismounts from shrapnel (basically reinventing the wheel at this point since the stupid pidors won’t get in the fricking vehicles), and to shield the EW that they’re trying to carry because the body of the tank is too small to carry one internally.

              Got any pics? I've only ever seen homemade APCs and Black person rigged slat armor on tanks or shit like pic rel.

        You realize the nugget being a meme never had anything at all to do with being pro-Russia, or even saying Soviet weapons were good right? It was the best gun available <$200 to 2000s teenagers, and that's what gave it meme status. It was despite it being a Russian piece of shit, not because of it.

          They have to spam the moist nugget meme because there isn't a single, not a single other example of /k/ being even vaguely pro-russian or having a pro-russian meme.
          That should be pretty telling on it's own, when other boards like PrepHole had dozens of pro-russian memes (cheeki breeki, routed through omsk, slav squat etc. etc.).

    Honestly my guess is that with US Aid being so long delayed, there's been a shortage of ATGM's and the Ukrainians compensating with increased use of weaker FPV's in the anti-tank role. Hence the Russians completely turtling up their tanks in response.

    Hopefully with US Aid back on the table, Ukies will get a flood of new Javelins and we can catch on camera what happens when a tank turret tosses while wrapped up in all that extra crap.

        What are you smoking you homosexual? Ukraine literally said at the very beginning of this war that javelins were so good that they could use several hundred a day if needs were fully met (but that doesn’t mesh with the old 2100 units a year production rate, or the new goal of 4000 units a year), so that means they’ve been conserving them since the start. And very recently they have asked for more javelins after the major armored assaults by Russia started ramping up in winter. Advanced US ATGMs don’t grow on trees, so to the contrary of your post there’s been nothing to imply that Ukraine hasn’t been trying to conserve everything that they’ve been getting from the US, including ATGMs.

    What would happen if you flew a drone with a molotov wienertail into the hole in the front? The half closed space plus the engine sucking in air could cause some serious problems or am i wrong?

    I dont understand why the ziggers are doing this with tanks

    With APCs it would make perfect sense as they are extremely vulnerable to drones and dont have a frickhuge turret that needs to be able to traverse 360. Plus they actually have an infantry cargo they need to get to a destination

    I like dead Indians. Of course Indians are not a race but a nationality so I am free to despise and discriminate against them as it is not racism.

        Funny how within 10 years of India getting mobile data and internet access, the world wants them dead.

    If the Russians were so smart then why don't they just weld steel plates around the tank to make armor a little thicker and just use xbox huge ERA blocks that can mold around tank including the top? Am I the only one thinking this?

      because those little drones just go explode on your optics. you can armor a tank with 10,000000mm of ceramic and still get mission killed
