no offense, but until you get the basics down, there is no point in me replying to all that’s wrong with this. Sorry.I am not asking you to tell me everything. Again you forget what is spaced Armour. Sending me pic where it says Old Type 59 cast turret with reshaping plates and vice versa. That is because there actual purpose was to install plates in such way that era can be installed on them. But that does not negate my claim it is an spaced armor that is protecting the actually turret bubble canopy. Hence, it is spaced armor too.
The hollow space between the plates increases the shell's travel time, thus reducing the charge's penetrating power.
This is definition of space Armour. Hence, it benefits Al-ZARRAR due to installation of plates it creates an hollow space between the actually turret and new cast plates over turret.

Check the definition of spaced Armour anywhere and you will get examples like above tank.
I am trying to tell you the same that its better than what Indians currently have fielded specially AK and VT4. Dont care about Russian tanks military operational tanks.
Alzarrar's turret didn't pop off that according to you was penetrated by spg9 that means its ammunition was stored properly than t72. During WOT in Waziristan how many tanks of Pakistan army were disabled or destroyed ? that tells you the quality of the tanks and tactics used by Pak Fauj. Alhamdulillah they performed well.
Agreed with the chinese turret frontal arc issue.
Quoting from https://below-the-turret-ring.blogspot.com/2016/11/chinese-tank-composite-armor.html
A problem of the Chinese tank design is the armor layout. Most tanks are designed with full armor protection along the frontal 60° arc (±30° from the turret centerline), because statistically between 60 and 80% of all hits (depending on conflict and measurement methodology) occur in this arc. Tanks like the Challenger 1/2, Leopard 2, the Leclerc and the M1 Abrams not only have thick frontal armor, but also turret side armor designed to provide the equivalent thickness when attacked from a 30° angle. Tanks following the Soviet tank design philosophy, such as the T-72, T-90, T-84 and the PT-91 don't feature composite armor at the turret sides, but the overlapping frontal armor and the turret geometry make sure, that the weak side armor is not exposed when being attacked along the frontal 60° arc.
Half the time your contradicting yourself, half the time you’re going back on what you said before. And half of it is just factually wrong.
