T-72B and Kontakt-1 question

Recommended Posts

Steven Zaloga's works suggest that early ERA, like early '80s composite armour developed in Chobham and its derivatives, provided fantastic protection against CE while providing comparatively minimal additional protection against KE. Using the diagram for the early T-72B in the wiki, how much more protection does this translate into for KE and CE?

Actually composite armors provided increase in protection or both KE and CE.

And BTW, it's not "Chobham", non of these armors used by M1, Challenger 1 or Leopard 2 have codename. The only official codename that can be found in documents is "Burlington", and this is only codename for research and development program. The US part of the program had also alternative codename "Starflower". ;)
