The other option is penetration and then explosion of HE rounds stored against the plate that is destroyed. Is there a ready rack there ?
There was an ammo rack behind that armour plate. https://youtu.be/6ZFPB0spgOw?t=438
Ok, I am calling this case closed.
That took a while. Ought to have been first choice.
Others were speculating about large bore AP or APHE being responsible for the first image. They were at least plausible explanations.
Yes, but we often forget the myriad ways to destroy a tank, leaving much the same debris afterwards. Too often we get twitterpated by notions of high velocity penetration, when it could also be a mortar round taken down a hatchway, setting off a round in the loader's hand. There is also the likelihood of a surviving crew walking away, leaving a fire to consume and set off munitions.
