In Ukraine, they began installing "barbecues" on American Abrams tanks

For the first time on the territory of Ukraine, an American M1A1SA Abrams tank was spotted, which is distinguished by a non-standard protection configuration. The tank is equipped not only with the standard ARAT (Abrams Reactive Armor Tiles) dynamic protection kit, but also with additional units of the Soviet Kontakt-1 dynamic protection. In addition, the tank is equipped with anti-cumulative screens and the so-called “barbecue” - a mesh structure designed for additional protection against cumulative ammunition.

The appearance of such tanks is primarily due to the latter’s vulnerability to unmanned aerial vehicles and anti-tank systems, which have already burned several American combat vehicles, demonstrating the latter’s serious vulnerability to relatively cheap weapons.
