I think the blocky objects on the turret seen here
on a burned-out tank in Tskhinvali are reactive armor
modules (best seen in picture #4). Given that they didn't burn or explode when the tank burned out, I could be wrong, but I'm not sure. If they are
reactive armor blocks, it would make me nervous to have high-explosive modules sitting around where folks can grab them. Of course, given what just went on in Georgia, that may be the least of anybody's problems.
