    Depends - of course - on the tank (i.e. which ,odel and which variant.
    Current (top of the line) Western tanks have about 40% of their cost due to electronics.

    All the electronics should ideally be outside the tank, and preferably behind a waterproof barrier of some sort.

    The only electronic device I would trust inside a tank is a fully submersible heater. They are designed to be submerged. Although even those are risky. I once pulled the heater out so I could clean the tank, but forgot to shut it off. It got very hot, and when I went to put it back it, the eater sizzled and the glass heater exploded. I'm lucky my Siamese Fighting fish wasn't electrocuted.

    Oh. This is the Military subforum. Well, my tank was civilian, but still, that shouldn't make a difference.

    Thus making them vulnerable to small-arms fire?
    And requiring breaks/ holes in the armour for all of the wiring to go to the interior?

    If they had been, you could have fed them to your white cat.
