In Germany, experienced a "safe" active tank protection system

44
German company Rheinmetall has successfully tested a new active system tank protection, which, according to the developers, does not pose a danger to armored vehicles and infantry located next to the protected machine. According to Breaking Defense, it was possible to make the system safe thanks to the technology of close interception, in which a flying missile is destroyed close to the tank.


The new system is called ADS. It consists of sensors for the early detection of ammunition, electronic-optical systems for confirming the approach of rockets and shells, a computer system and devices for shooting off striking elements.

In Germany, experienced a "safe" active tank protection system

Fuchs armored personnel carrier with ADS system


The principle of operation of ADS is relatively simple. At some distance from the protected machine, early detection sensors “detect” the approaching ammunition. The system takes him to support, determines the flight path and calculates the approximate place in which he can get. Then, close to the armored ammunition, electro-optical systems are detected.

Shooting systems for striking elements are activated just before the ammunition touches the armor. In Rheinmetall claim that the striking elements in this case, fly a short distance from the armored vehicles, where there is no infantry and other armored vehicles. At the same time, even undermining the flying ammunition will not damage the machine, since there will be no direct contact with the armor.

The new active protection system can be installed not only on the tank, but also on any other type of armored vehicles. ADS tests were carried out on the Leopard II main battle tank and the Fuchs wheeled armored personnel carrier. The checks are successful. Other details about the future system are not specified, reports "N + 1"

      But how it will not work. What is a faster-flying projectile, or this whole chain of actions to prevent it from hitting a target? Yes, and they decided to shoot down not on the fly, but in the very vicinity of the equipment body.

    And that the shock wave from the explosion does not harm either the sensors or the foot soldiers nearby? belay

    An Arab with a rag will be included? To wipe the sensors.
    Judging by the RPG-7 commercial with a tandem grenade, this protection will pass at a time, only the leading charge will be lost.

      The tandem grenade is doubtful, but the RPG 30 "Hook" is just designed to overcome the KAZ.

        Why is this? It is long, the sensor will work on the head part - everything will go through it, and the main one will fly.

    With the proliferation of such KAZ, it will be cheaper and smaller. I wanted to read the opinion of Oleg <professor> He most of all says that the tank is an anochronism. Although is it so?

    “Systems for firing striking elements are activated an instant before the ammunition touches the armor” ///

    It looks more like an improved DZ than a AZ.
    A moment before the defeat, if the heads of the attacking rocket touch something, then it’s likely
    option that cumm.stroy will have time to form.
    And even partially dissipated by the oncoming charge, it will be able to pass light armored personnel carriers.
    In short, a risky "last-minute" way. recourse

    Rafael has already made such a system. Called Trophy LV. But Raphael is more modest than the Germans. He writes that the probability of infantry defeat is less than 1%. I would like to ask the Germans, and if the infantry is pressed to the armor?

      When a mini-nuclear power plant can fit in the MTO of a tank, but non-magnetic ones have long been no news. Not special.

        not magnetic steels will not help, with a sufficient density of the magnetic flux, or rather, with a sufficient density of atoms created by the magnetic field, we will get a "force field" aka "energy barrier", a similar effect has long been shown in science fiction, in real life we ​​don’t have understanding the principles of electromagnetic fluxes at levels less than the atomic one, which is much more important, and the impossibility of creating either formulas or installations arises from this. But sooner or later, such a technology will appear in view of the fact that without it, space exploration is impossible. But we most likely will not see this. hi

    It is interesting how external factors affect the operation of such a system. Indeed, due to close contact, a small delay in a split second will lead to a shell hit.

    Well, probably this year KNUMX is known about this KAZ (if not more). It can hardly be called a “revolution”! The “analogue” (even approximate) is the Ukrainian “Barrier” (which in turn was created on the basis of the Soviet experienced KAZ "Rain") An analogue of this system can be made without any problems on the basis of the "Arena" (special modernization) or using the ammunition of the KAZ "Arena" and some technical solutions implemented in the KAZ "Barrier" ... Is it possible to pick up the "key" to the German "lock"? Well then ... let's try!
    1. Grenade (RPG), projectile --EFP charge ("impact core") and miniature laser rangefinder (non-contact fuse) 2. Cumulative "leader" fired near the target (main ammunition after it) ... technical solution implemented in ATGM "HOT-3" .... the principle of influence is somewhat similar to the "decision" of the RPG-30 "Hook".

    The Germans have a protective munition that fires at the installation site and is directed steeper down ... That's the whole "upgrade"
    At the "Arena", - a trigger at a distance (after firing from a tank): soldier
