Russians employing a very effective smoke screen as they advance across a field.

Leo1A5 going to UA. We can probably consider these to be FSV?

I suspect they'll be used as MBTs.

well, let's define what that actually means? As far as I  can see, most tanks in .ua get used as FSVs. Most MBTs do not get killed by other MBTs. And given 70mm frontal armour, I'd not care to  pitch Leo1s (and T6x) against MBTs.

The Ukrainians would probably rather use a Leo 1 than try to  hope a BMP will use its missiles to kill tanks. Maybe try to use it where they won't be guaranteed to go against the most modern T-72s, but I wouldn't be surprised if that fails.

Great look at the Shaheeds warhead design. First time I've seen such a design.

Believed warheads being optimized for targeting infrastructure due to the design.
