Interested in " Dessert Ferrari " 😍

Seems like Mk1A is gaining traction.

Even Hellfire advocates Mk1A purchase in appropriate theatre and selling T72 as reserves to Russia.
Yeah,we all are dumb enough to believe this. Arab countries operating Israeli origin weapons.

We need to get Arjun a proper canon and work on localisation of its engine and transmission. Maybe then we can order another 2 regiments of improved Arjun.

In the New Era of warfare ,Tanks have to be protected with Infantry

Tanks can be killed by

Missile firing Drones ,

ATGMs , which can easily penetrate 500mm Armour

Helicopters which can take out a tank from 7 to 10 km

GUIDED Artillery shells And Rockets ,

The question is why should we waste money on more Tanks

One RPG 29 can destroy the Tracks of an ABRAMS

The softest part of the Tank is where the Canon is fitted with the Turret

One 84 mm RCL round will punch a hole in the Canon

If the Enemy is able to kill your infantrymen with accurate Artillery fire , Who will protect the Tank

The future solution to tanks & hptrs is unmanned & light in the ratio 7:10 or 8:10 in favor of unmanned : manned till such time as one works out more safer & quicker ways to cover vast distances rapidly by an expeditionary force .

In India Pakistan context , where Tank warfare will happen , we cannot even think of 10 KM inside Pakistani Punjab without suffering large scale casualties

Rajasthan may be but they have Ditch Cum Bunds and Canals to stop our Tanks in addition to Static Pill Boxes

Since Limited Money is the Over Arching Factor , it is better to invest in SSMs

Look at how Russians are loosing their Tanks , But their ISKANDERS and Kalibers are taking out all Ukranian HVTs

Why large scale casualties ? Establish air superiority & hit those tanks in their base . Next use air to hit them while they're in the fields. It's only after you've taken out substantial numbers you commence with your land campaign.


0.52 onwards , for your easy understanding.

We wont get the Luxury of Time
To first have an Air campaign

And Then launch the ground campaign

Just 5 days for All the Three services to Damage the Pakistan Military

That is what Jointness is all about

APS for our army vehcles is making progress. But transmitter seems to be so small & L shaped reciever antenna array, perhaps an electronics/telecom student/professional canexplain better.
Trophy has octagonal shape & some have circular radar too.
Some EO sensors will also be required to supplement the system.
