Explosive reactive and composite armour

We are happy to introduce some new features of the next Major Update 1.71 “New E.R.A”: composite and explosive reactive armour for the ground vehicles!

When rounds that could penetrate up to 400mm of armoured steel were invented, engineers had to find a new approach to tank protection. One of these solutions became composite armour - protection that consists of several layers of different materials, and though it has significantly less mass than conventional steel armour, it is equally durable.

The second option was reactive armour. Such “armour” consists of metal containers with  explosives and metal plates. When the container is hit - the explosive jet causes detonation and the plates “fly towards” the jet, thus the jet penetrates new sections of the plates losing focus and penetration.
