Protective systems for reduction of tank signatures are designed for reducing the range and probability of the tank detection by reconnaissance equipment and homing devices of high precision ammunitions.
Measures of making the tank less prone to be detected allow the following:
- to reduce the tank thermal signature by 5-7 times;
- to reduce the tank radar signature by 3-5 times;
- to reduce the tank visual signature by 1.5 times.
