That is, the thinner the armor, the less striking element. The cumulative jet itself does not create a significant high-explosive or thermobaric effect after breaking through (that is, an explosion, a sharp increase in temperature and pressure, affecting the crew in the first place). Therefore, in Syria, there were many cases when tanks got off quite easily after being hit.

Simply put, the Americans probably would like to test their complex in a real confrontation with hundreds of combat vehicles, and to do it with someone else’s hands is much preferable.
