The second version of the tank with a "shed" was created and used by russians in the same area - near Krasnohorivka, and a metal roof was used to create it

russian grouping near Krasnohorivka used a tank equipped with total FPV-drone defense again. This is the second attempt to do something similar after the first and only use of the structure in the shape of "shed" a week ago.

But now, according to the photos that have been appeared, we are talking about more advanced design. This is a larger "shed" with an installed electronic warfare system.

The increase in height may be due to the fact that such a structure serves only one purpose - to throw an infantry group. So the higher "ceiling" may be created due to the requirements that russian infantrymen have formed. As for the electronic warfare system, it is a rather popular russian design with 8 patch antennas that must operate in a wide range of frequencies.

In addition, the second photo better shows that the new version of the tank's protection is assembled from whatever was found at hand, including a metal roof. Given the area of operation, it is possible that it was taken from the same hangar where the first version was stored. It should be noted destruction of the first such tank was thanks to the efforts of the OSINT community.

At the same time, the appearance of a second version of such russian vehicle is quite logical. The fact is that the first use of such protection allowed occupiers to reach Ukrainian positions, land and return. Only after that this tank was destroyed. Therefore, the appearance of similar vehicles in russian occupiers` ranks should be expected in the future.
