What is the importance of shot traps on modern vehicles?
>>
>>27798012
Modern KE penetrators do not bounce off things, unless they hit it at an extremely high angle.

Those arent solid steel plates, the actual armor is behind them

>>27798012
Does your definition of "modern" include anything made during the 30's and 40's?
>>
>>27798012
If your design is so fucked up that it has shot traps, your vehicle won't survive combat for very long. That's pretty damned important to the crew, I'd say.

>What is the importance of shot traps on modern vehicles?

If your only possible opponent only uses modern antiarmor weapons, unimportant.

If your army is likely to see battle against the Glorious People's Armed Forces of the People's Republic of Dirkadirkastan, who are still using Chinese T1959s and WWII-leftover Russian full-caliber 100mm AP rounds*, shot traps are very VERY important.

*protip: this generic description covers a LOT more countries than are buying T90s, even monkey-model T90s, in the year 2015

>>27798012
It is only important to Eastern tanks like Russia.

Abrams does not have shota traps.

also if it made contact with extrme high angle it wouldn't bounce, but shatter

>Turret ring getting fucked up
Shot traps do nothing on modern vehicles you pleb.
>>
>>27798550
>implying WWII era Russian full-caliber 100mm AP rounds will actually penetrate a modern MBT
soooo.... not important?
>>
>>27799863
They will most certainly penetrate the turret ring.

Look at the tank, then look at your post.

>thinking 100mm AP rounds will ricochet from this.
They will go right through into main armor.

/k/ usually does not know how tank armor works.
