According to military experts, along with active protection complexes that are capable of destroying anti-tank ammunition on the way, it is necessary to create new versions of the CEEP.
The author notes that “active defense is more expensive, it is dangerous not only for the enemy, but also for his troops, in addition, the stock of damaging elements on tank or another armored car is limited, and it can end at the most inopportune moment. "
Therefore, it is necessary to widely introduce effective means of detecting incoming ammunition, which, together with compact lasers, are capable of disabling missile homing heads. "They reliably secure armored vehicles", - concludes the publication.
