Nice set!

Sorry but if the reactive armor goes off only with stones that are thrown by hand or with a slingshot there is a serious security problem, it would mean that the armor can 'explode in any situation, a mechanic who falls a tool or parts , a crew member who drops part of the load or ammo,while the tank is on the ship for deployment, with a vehicle so heavy it would mean to blow up the armor whenever accidentally even just touches something, and it does not seem to me case since you see photos of ERA with signs of bullets and damage caused by the tank went to crash into something without having started the charges

VERY original idea but (by PC design or otherwise) the faces are clearly Caucasian rather than Middle Eastern which I assume they were intended to represent. After all, where else do teenagers throw stones at tanks.....?

Does not have to be tanks. I've thrown plenty of stones in my day Fortunately not once at tanks.

Make it a British vehicle and it could be N. Ireland.

This set is in ny to a dio I'm doing.
A section of street with houses damaged by bombing, a Merkava Mk.IV, piles of debris, the boys throwing stones and maybe some rebels hidden ready to atack.

Nice kit also for a "European use" the shoes on two are not so useable.

Hope they make some "1980s Greenies" soon. Can't have a proper reforger without some long haired hippy protesters can we
