I was wondering why the turrets of the Challenger 2, the Abrams, the Leopard 2 are rectangle boxes whilst the Russians are domed. One design must be better than another vs a shell, unless its a fashion statement to brand identify?

It's just a guess but isn't it because now the use of reactive armour reduces the impact of armour's shape on the penetration of the rounds?
