      Not reliably but 103b still can do quite nice bounces if you
      aim little higher and twerk you tank preventing enemies to
      shoot your commander cupola. But not too much because
      that side armor is nonexistent thing. It will let shells go trought
      even with insane angle.

        and then you go up against 122+mm armed Russian/Chinese that knows whole you middle hull is overmatch zone that he can pen regardless of angle

        He cant bounce shit now, 90+ mm will overmatch the armor even at extreme angles… on every side, front, rear, sides, top, etc..

        Remember… 3x overmatch mechanic will be still running on 9.17

    1. Nah if its a photo from the seventies then it should be the 103-B as all the 103-A had been converted into 103-B by that time.

      The reason you don’t see the anti-heat grid on front is because, at the time it was a kept a secret from the public for many years. So that possible invaders would not be prepared for it.

      The anti-heat grid was only to be mounted in the event of a war.

      Ofc, after the end of the cold war, keeping it a secret wasn’t realy needed anymore, which is why you see the grid mounted on later pictures.
