Laser range finder should be with main optronic block (of gunner); I also do not see purpose of measuring projectile velocity at the given ranges. So some kind of IFF device? Non-laser based device for measurement of curvature of the gun?
Can someone explain purpose of the encircled device(s) on this tank? (In reality not on the model, just to avoid any misunderstanding)
a barrel calibration device and a millimeter-wave radar of ZTZ99A2 active defense system, i heard from other mate.
Maybe the millimeter-wave radar detects missile coming, then laser weapon station on the top of 99A2 turret destroys the missile ?
I doubt it.
