    In addition to serving in the neighboring part, such systems were in storage. Well, how they stood. They drove them into the open field and put them tightly one to one, fenced with a thorn and left to the mercy of the weather. There wasn’t enough time to count. Well, there were a lot of them. Now they probably already drive barmalei in Iraq or Syria

    Most for the DNI and LC. They do not need a large firing range

      Yes. It would not be bad ..
      That is why only LBT? And if such a "cucumber", and even such a hummingbird, and to fill up a thermobar in a tank? I wonder what remains of the crew?

        In the best case, a heavy shell shock, in the worst detonates the ammunition located behind the tank tower.

    If the tank is tight, there will be nothing to the crew, but the body kit of the tank will suffer, yes

      Minus. "Sealed tankoff" does not happen.

      Another minus. Even in an "airtight tank", the crew during the explosion of the BK "behind the tower" will be ... sour.
