Why bother with such a bulky and complicated solution when there already are field tested active protection systems that do the job in a much more elegant fashion? Besides, as noted it doesn't show an independently rotating mount. Is the reason for this "tank-CIWS"-idea solely based on the fact that we are looking at a gatling barrel arrangement somewhat similar to Phalanx, AK-630 etc? Mind you, a huge ASM coming in over open sea is a little bit different from an ATGM or RPG fired at you from a few hundred yards over varying terrain.
was just fantasy. But about the issue with distance. Imo a ATGM fired from 1km+ can be theoraticaly intercepted further away from the tank if attached to a 360° sonar like detection with laser lock. From far distances, it takes a missile several seconds. For such a system it would take less then one or two second to react. Is not that far fatched and complex at all. It should be possible these days. The complexity rather lies in developing a kinetic and electronical mechanism which simultaniously interacts fast enough for multi ancle rotation.
Anyway, hel lot of firepower there against Infantry. Such a tank means very though business.
Out of all the recruits who attempt to join the FSB Spetsnaz (lets say Alpha), what percentage actually pass training?
How about a unit along the lines of the 45th ORP of the VDV?
Sorry if these questions have already been asked a million times before. I'm guessing nobody knows for sure what the pass rate is, but I've been proven wrong plenty of times before so I thought I'd ask anyways. .
Celebrities pretending to serve in Army. Each week they did a "mission" and the loosing team voted people off, but unlike most shows in this one after a few weeks new celebs could join teams.
From Eng page of the show "Special Mission The show is not a game, it’s a military experiment with no room for decorations and sentiments. ‘Special Mission’ contestants go through realistic combat missions at a real military base and learn what marching in soldier’s boots feels like. The show was second in The WIT’s ‘Fresh TV Around the World’ list in October, 2011."
