This is the Tank that got hit with 14 RPG rockets and an ATG missile .
Yes that’s right and in one incident around 70 RPGs were launched against it and survived.
well it’s all because of this Top Secret Dorchester or Chobham armor built with possibly multiple space layers of steel and plastic.
We will also be looking at the Fire and Control System of this tank! using this Stationary joystick to track and fire with this trigger, hidden just below the controls.
Interestingly this tank requires 3 parts of Ammunition loading process ! to fire this rifle gun and most importantly the basic process of driving this tank! all in the videos ahead, so don’t miss a beat !
