Russian T-72 Saved by Explosive Reactive Armor

Published 2 months ago

Russian troops recording a T-72 in action near Lisichansk capture the moment an anti-tank guided missile scores a direct hit on the armor. Fortunately for the Russians inside of the vehicle, the ERA kit worked.


Normally when you see a piece of Russian armor hit by an anti-tank guided missile system, you also see the turret enter the turret toss challenge. Fortunately for the Russian troops inside of this specific T-72, their explosive reactive armor kit, also known as an ERA kit, was functioning as intended.


If you're unfamiliar with explosive reactive armor, you've seen it and you just don't know it. Most modern tanks are outfitted with an ERA-kit that is attached to the tank's armor. The kit is designed to explode when an incoming threat is detected, this forces a small metal plate outwards that impacts with the incoming projectile, detonating it before it can reach the vehicle it is protecting.


You don't often see footage like this. This tank crew is lucky.
