Israeli Turret

#1
What's the deal with the chains hanging down from the rear of the Merkerva Turret?



Are they as I suspect some sort of defence of the turret ring against RPGs etc? Can't see that being massively effective...

Its a magic anti AT projectile thingy, that also gives a dead menacing clanking sound on top of the tracks
 
#3
Yep, they are there to set off HEAT weapons - and although they might look chip-shop, if it's Israeli it'll be effective!

I dunno, maybe it's supposed to detonate any RPG before it manages to shoot down the crack (oo err).

I know fuçk all though, so it's a uneducated guess.

... and you find loads of money hidden away in all the nooks and crannys. in the turret?

(Kind of where we manage to stash all our porn and bottles of baileys...)

The Merkava has a ballistic trap under the rear bustle; the dreadlock chains are there to disrupt AT munitions that would otherwise get channeled in and hit eg. the turret ring.

FFS I'm a STAB infantryman telling you this...

Nige, you are quite right - humour is good, knowledge is good, but there's a bit too much stupidity on display! Oh, BB, yes, you are a STAB Grunt, which rhymes with cnut, and you haven't actually told anybody anything, you tttwwwaaattt

If the cowbell fits, wear it! Yep BB, tank does rhyme with plank, it also rhymes with w*nk, shank, rank, spank, and lots of other things...but you are still a STAB! Shouldn't you be attending your local STAB social club, anyway, it being Friday and all?
