Sorry for a search failure …

A while back, someone posted a link to a document that explained the various mechanisms of armor penetration and included photographic examples of each type. Does anyone remember this?

No, that's not it (I had found that one in a Google search). The one I remember was meant for laymen and had many photographs, several for each type of penetration (ductile, punching, shattering, etc.).

Sorry. It seemed very detailed but if you skip the math bits pretty understandable.

Are you talking about Critical Masses post at Axis History?

I think someone made a PDF of critical mass's posts, and that's what I saw. Regardless, it's very close.

Thanks to everyone! If you have other good references, let me know!
