    Re: Turkey-Altay’s armour is ready to protect

    We are curiously waiting for the arrival of this armour.

    All we new about Altay's armour is "Boron Carbide based new unspecified type composite armour"

    What we know about the Boron Carbide is , it is the 3rd hardest material in the world after diamond and tungusten carbide. When evaluated with other ceramics which take part in armor systems; boron carbide is the hardest and lightest, but also the most expensive and brittle. Boron carbide composites are today favoured for ceramic plates protecting against smaller projectiles, such as used in body armour and armoured helicopters;

    As far as i know; Altay will be the first tank to use boron carbide based armour. Inaddition Turkey has 63% of the world’s boron reserves.
