There are vehicles that have their turrets locked by gravity alone... but Modern tanks like this one? I find it a big design flaw. In this case, a constellation of IEDs under the road kicked it off (2 casualties), There's a video but couldn't find it.

 

But then there's also this (reduce sound/volume):

 

So this vehicle flipped but didn't folded like the one above.

 

Any thoughts?

I feel like you can just google this kind of thing rather than just spamming the "create topic" button.

Simple brackets C shaped brackets attached to either the turret or hull, something like this   bolt it to say the turret and have a ball bearings in the other end so it doesn't grind. then when you want to remove the turret just unbolt them all.

That image is from 2006. Shorty after they started with TUSK kits etc to counter IED's after losing 500 tanks to them. Going by the turret, this did not have one "not sure it would have helped". There is a video of that very explosion somewhere. And it's not a small one, as the IED was made out of a 1000 lbs bomb. That's almost a half a ton of explosives. All things considering, it's amazing most of the crew did make it out alive.

According to this, it involves removing 48 bolts before lifting the turret with a crane....so not quite held by gravity.

RE: Cristi, it would if I asked about T-34s and KV-1s, but those I already the info. And to be honest... WoT Excal has both, so...

 

@Bordhaw, Facebook is as damaging as cocaine. Harvard, study IIRC. I rarely use it.

 

Thank you for the answers, got exactly what I was looking for.

 

Thread can be closed if WG_M so desires.
