Do tanks have laser warning receivers?

The answer is no, unless fitted with a external add on system such as Trophy or Shtora. So the element of surprise is important along with tactical movements and preparation. No such thing as a fair fight in Armor Warfare. Study your enemy weaknesses, train as much as you can. Learn from your mistakes during the training. The crews ability to do their job and work together play a major part along with experience. Remember never underestimate your enemy, he will surprise you if your not ready!

I think the T-90 has one.  It will turn its turret towards you and fire smoke grenades if you lase it.

Also one CV-90 model is equiped with LWS, not sure if is the denmark or the netherlands model.

I think we are talking two systems here, one Lazar, the other RADAR.Most modern AFV have LWS The other, active protection (anti-projectile) has Radar IE RWS

what I meant by laser warning system is a screen with a hull that has a clock face around it where if you are being lased from the right side the 1 to 5 o’clock segment would light up as a pie on that hull or even more precise forms.

No nothing like that, a lot of modern tanks have Turret/Hull positioning indicators in the gunners station. Most modern tanks do not come with these systems stock.The units have to buy these systems to be installed. I think that Trophy is intergrated into the Tanks GPS system so when the tank is lase a indicator and line from the lase location appears on the digital map along with a warning alert and the added on system defenses. Not sure about the others add on systems like shtora. Maybe Damian might know more about these systems.

In the CV90/35-NL you may activate the "DAS" from the commander's position (center bottom, near the thermal monitor). Depending on the settings being lased will trigger an audio warning with a direction, with 30° accuracy (e.g. "Laser range finder, ten o'clock!"), or even rotate the turret automatically into the direction of the threat (and pop smoke).

US Army is also testing LWS and ROSY for M1 and M2.

 

 

The way LWS and Rosy are installed, means they can be also used with Trophy HV.
