the aim isn’t to take on the tank from the front but to move somewhere the tank would have a hard time engaging then attack from the weak points. The flanks, the rear or the top.You must have big balls to engage a tank from a golf cart.
Many modern ATGMs outrange guns on MBTs, so these ATVs will be engaging MBTs from a safe distance. Also, ATVs have tiny silhouettes and are easily camouflaged or concealed, so good luck spotting them before it's too late. In other words, tactical ATVs armed with ATGMs are the perfect platform for shoot-and-scoot.You must have big balls to engage a tank from a golf cart.
Modern ATGMs can outrange MBT guns significantly, some of which have vehicle-mounted variants hitting even further. The latest Kornet variant can reach out to 6500m, for example, about 2500m longer than Rh-120.Not really. Most tie at best. You have to get a aircraft launched missile to really out range. And that means an attack chopper or turboprop or Jet fighter to launch it.
That’s a major part of it. And can said gulf cart ID the tank at that range?It’s not just about the range of the munitions, but also the sensors. Can a tank identify a tactical golf cart (TGC) at 4km+ range, when said TGC is in cover as well?
I would say that the detection and engagement range advantage would always go to the TGC, since it will just be mounting normal ATGMs, and in most ambush scenarios, would have a similar profile as a ATGM team by taking advantage of cover and natural elevation/depressions etc.That’s a major part of it. And can said gulf cart ID the tank at that range?
then there is if the missile has to make a lot of course corrections. Those will eat up fuel and slow it down finally does the tank have an APS?
It’s not a one sided deal here a lot of factors come in. The optics the position of the tanks is moving and if the hit is effective. Because that is a one shot deal. If you miss the firing turns that gulf cart into target practice.
