Doesn't matter what armour you have when you're hit in the rear by a Kornet. That's why the latest effort against ATGMs is to make a defensive system that either deflects or destroys the missile.

Many people seem to believe that a particular tank is indestructible but the truth is that most western MBTs since the end of the cold war have only been up against monkey model T-55/62/72 or 50 year old RPGs and SPGs.
