That looks like some serious damage. Can be a while before it can be fixed.

It's only a tenth of a meter wider than the Challenger 2, not too unreasonable.

I'm more wondering what purpose that door in the side serves, other than being a nice big ballistic window.

I dont think it is a door

just gonna point out that, ignoring the pic, it is just as reasonable (if not more) as most other NS tanks

aside from the incorrect power/weight ratio, low max gradient/tilt, and the question of what the hell "Anti-Electrical Cluster Munitions" are i don't actually see anything wrong with it

So, I seem to recall some discussion here about venting, or redirecting a tanks exhaust over the tracks towards the ground, or some such, to reduce the tanks IR signature. I'd like to incorporate this feature into the next upgrade for my main battle tank, or retcon it into the current production run.

Can anyone here be assed enough to either give me a brief rundown on the principal behind this, or how its accomplished, so I'm not talking out of my ass when I d the write up, or be kind enough to point me to some reference material.

Its also possible I'm just over thinking the concept.
