Dont under estimate RPG power.

A few things....
 

.....notice the drop on trajectory of the RPG missile....effective range is 200m....see hit probabilities below

.....secondly.....the test rig ain't CHOBHAM armour.......one Challenger 2 operating near Basra survived being hit by 70 RPGs in an incident.

...and finally.....Google TROPHY (countermeasure)......for next generation countermeasures against AT.

 

Hit probabilties of RPG:
Range/Percent

50 m / 100%

100 m / 96%

200 m / 51%

300 m / 22%

400 m / 9%

500 m / 4%

RPG? meh, may as well use a potato gun,,

 

'During the 2003 invasion of Iraq the Challenger 2 tanks suffered no tank losses to enemy fire, although one was penetrated by an IED. This was, at the time, unprotected by Dorchester armour. The driver was injured. In one encounter within the urban area a Challenger 2 came under attack from irregular forces with machine guns and rocket propelled grenades. The driver's sight was damaged and while attempting to back away under the commander's directions, the other sights were damaged and the tank threw its tracks entering a ditch. It was hit directly by fourteen rocket propelled grenades from close range and a MILAN anti-tank missile.[14] The crew survived remaining safe within the tank until the tank was recovered for repairs, the worst damage being to the sighting system. It was back in operation six hours later after repairs. One Challenger 2 operating near Basra survived being hit by 70 RPGs in another incident'

It seems, both :D But I found BF4 violence much more enjoyable than real life violence! ;)
