That would necessitate advanced fusing though (which hasn't been demonstrated).

Since 40mm is appears on the path so dont think 60 is a problem.

wouldn't you just convert space for soldiers to space for ammo?

Ammunition masses a whole load more than does soldiers.  This leads to weight distribution problems, particularly for an amphibious vehicle.

Not in case of T-15 (or Kurganets for that matter). It have unmanned non-intrusion turret, thus pushing it inside hull will take a significant amount of modifying vehicle. OTOH was done on Bumerang...

Quick question: The AU-220M and T-15 turret clearly don't have the Derivatsiya-PVO acquisition optics. But is it still possible that they could have the equipment to control the new guided round developed for the Derivatsiya-PVO? Or should we see these systems as completely different developments of the S-60?

It also occurred to me that a T-15 with the AU-220M could be a very effective weapon against the T-14. The 57mm could be very good at stripping ERA, Afganit, and sensors from the tank while one of the anti-tank missiles closed to finish it off. I wonder how effective 57mm high explosive rounds would be against optics in the tank as well? I wonder if one could produce a mission kill even without the anti-tank missile as a follow-up?

To answer my first question: In 2017 guided 57mm ammo was presented along with the AU-220M in the UAE... so it looks like it is possible (with some variant of the turret at least).
