    As I recall my faded memory ,I had seen tank with 20mm. gun on turret as its CIWS in some books .
    But I can't remember what is the name of that tank . Can you help me ? Some photos would be appreciated !

    I don't think these are CIWS ..but they are all miniguns in the Armored Track




    But the Tunguska and the Pantsir are CIWS

    No no, I'm asking for the cold war's active protection system .It has 1-2x20mm or 12.7mm. on the turret with radar . I can't remember that it's leopard 2 prototype or challenger 1 prototype or chieftain .

    What I am asking for is "Gun" active defense system . It's like gun(12.7 or 20 mm.) turret with radar on turret of the tank .It's sort of prototype for MBT . It's in 60s or 70s (no later than 80s ) and It's NATO not CIS .
    I really appreciate your help but it's still not what I'm looking for .
