Thickness off side-armor?


Recommended Posts

Can anyone pls give me a quick overview about the protection levels of the side armor of the differnt vehicles? Are there big differences between the tank families?

yes. pre-1980s tanks are usually far less protected from the side, mostly only proof against russian 30mm. any RPG will go through the sides.

modern tanks:


about that thick.

APCs and IFVs, it depends. old western IFVs have 14.5mm allround protection, modern western IFVs are at least proof against russian 30mm. old western APCs 7.62mm. russian IFVs and APCs are usually 7.62mm proof, modern western APCs are 14.7mm proof.
