“Brave Tiger” CM11 gets ERA protection.

Jane’s is reporting that recent photographs have confirmed that at the Republic of China Army has upgraded at least part of their fleet of CM11 “Brave Tiger” MBTs with explosive reactive armor.  Jane’s reporter Christopher Foss notes that the exact origin of the ERA on the Tiawanese tanks is not known, but it appears similar to ERA developed by France rather than the Blazer ERA used by the Israel Defense Forces.  The CM11 is one of the stranger variants of the M48/M60 family, consisting of an upgraded M48 turret on a M60 hull.
