  1. Just curious about all those images we have seen of blown up T-72 and their variants, where a massive explosion blew the turret off the tank. Was this an issue with their Automatic Fire Extinguishing Systems, or was it an integral weakness of the design? Would a more sophisticated western made fire suppression system have prevented this? Modern AFES activate in milliseconds. They should have been able to put out any catastrophic fire within the T-72s. Would the T-72 and its variants be a safer tank if a better AFES were retrofitted to it?
