According to medias these "tests" were made to prove report of mr Macierewicz, who told that Rosomak was absolutely rubbish.
Antoni Macierewicz is part of our political folklore. Strange guy probably with some mental problems. Unfortunately he is close to Jaroslaw Kaczynski, but fortunately almost no one take him serious. For example he claimed that polish president was shot down by Russians using artificial fog, bomb planted inside presidential plane and special device to cheat plane's instruments (please don't comment that).
Yeah, I even seen photos from front hull armor tests. Armor was hit by RPG-7 granade (don't know what variant) at angle of something between 60 and 70 degrees and at angle of 90 degrees. None ended with armor perforation.It even managed to withstand front hit from RPG (armor was not penetrated).

I guess any APC can get armor penetration if you start removing the armor plates and go for "lucky shots".
Since in Afghanistan the Rosomaks are well equipped, can some of you comment on this picture (from this thread)... specifically the caliber used for the tests.
There was an article about this testing with new ceramic armor by 12,7 and 14,5 mm
