    I love it when we reinvent the wheel. The Brits had a "funny" that did the same thing on D-Day on Normandy. Americans laughed at it. Why aren't they laughing now? I also saw a video about the Ukrainians using home made anti-RPG metal fencing on a BMD-1. We used the same fencing around our bunkers in VN for the same reason. In both cases the home made anti-RPG netting worked as required. Wonder how much fence metal netting costs versus exploding armor? We'll never know because the War Pofiteers like Cheney and Rumsfeld would never let us know. Sometimes low tech works better than high, certainly is cheaper.

    GOV54321, can't tell if you are just funning me, or if you are too stupid to realize that the technology is old but uses modern equipment or that low tech that works cost much less by a million times than exploding armor. I'm presuming that as an AF guy you are not stupid so you are being sarcastic.
