Read an interesting article on a defect in Russian mechanized vehicle design dating back over 70 years. Apparently ammunition is stored in the turret, allowing them to maintain a much lower profile. However, the Javelins/NLAWs strike from above and detonate the entire ammunition store, giving the tankers approximately 1 second to get out before being incinerated. Approximately 580 Russian tanks have been destroyed so far; no numbers on destroyed armored cars. Another issue is the replacement of tank crews, which take up to 12 months to train.
