How dense is this ablative cloud anyway?  Can anything smaller than a
Cruiser class vessel pass through it? ;)

Normal (20th Century) chaff (not ablative foam propellant) confuses
and heat seeking missiles.  It don't stop 20mm or even small arms -
for a fortuitous ricochet.

I don't think APC should effect solid projectiles except missles and
only if it includes some "regular" chaff in addition to the ablative
