Pure speculation, but could those bits be similar emitters to the Soviet T-90 that defeat incoming missiles ?
On the T-90 they are each side of the main gun but mounted on the turrret.
Export T-90's do not have them.

Put the farm on Red #7 !!!!!!!??????? :crazy:

Sounds possible but why would they be angled to face inwards (unless they have longitudinal sensors?). I'll look forward to a reply from Bovy shortly :D
