Re: IDF Tanks in Russia
- Per an article about six years ago in "Krasnaya Zvezda" the Russians got an
intact M48A4 with "Blazer" armor in 1982 from the Syrians after it was
captured during the Bekaa Valley campaign. Russian designers had been
pressing for using "dynamic protection" (i.e. reactive armor) for several
years and when it was found the Israelis had it and it WORKED the T-64BV,
T-80BV, and T-72BV all appeared in 1984.
