UK electric armour, another energy force field...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7rxBifd0cY

I like the Rafael system. This one, not so much. The Rafael system appears to be effective against all incoming AT threats. The UK system only appears to be effective against HEAT (high explosive anti-tank) shells. AP (armor piercing) and APC/BC (armor piercing cap/ballistic cap) shot would be unaffected because they are straight up kinetic energy rounds as opposed to HEAT shells which rely on a shaped charge.

When HEAT explodes it focuses the high velocity "fire" and shockwave of the explosion to a point. The intent is to have the blast melt its way through the armor and superheat the AFV's interior to several thousand degrees while spraying molten spaul throughout the interior. The "fire" is actually a charged plasma caused by the chemical reaction of the explosion. A counter electric charge in the armor would repel the plasma. But it won't repel solid AP shot that relies on kinetic energy to pierce the armor.

The vehicle can be over whelmed by the numbers. Under massive attack it runs out of ammo and is taken out and taken down. China and Russia have tactics for these sort of vehicles.

Russia already has missiles capable of defeating missile shields. The best way to defeat a radar system is to flood the radar frequency with interference from satellites in orbit, then send missiles to destroy the emitter units. I don't think they want you knowing that though.
