Default Metal Foam Armor

Quote:
New foam armor for tanks can pulverize enemies

A revolutionary new material called Composite Metal Foam, or CMF, can pulverize enemy rounds and could even be used as an armor to protect tanks and other combat vehicles.

Believe it or not, this breakthrough foam may provide greater protection than traditional armor steel plates.

It is also far lighter than current armor. How much lighter? This foam has the potential to dramatically reduce the armor weight on combat vehicles by about 65 percent.


This is a discovery with potential to revolutionize future tanks and armored vehicles.

If it works, I'm for it 'cause I'm for what works as long as it's cost effective.

If not, can we put it bouncey castles?

If this works out, I can see it having applications to a lot of other things besides tanks.
APC's like the Bradley, A-series attack planes, even Naval ships.

Closed-cell metal foam was first reported in 1926 by Meller in a French patent
Two patents on sponge-like metal were issued to Benjamin Sosnik in 1948 and 1951

Whithout an explanation as to how it either absorbs or redirects the energy of an incoming round I can’t see how it couldn’t be defeated with a shell development against it
