Tank battle is a way old concept, do you think these so called lightbtanks will survive the day in the new era of 3rd gen anti tank missiles & attack helicopters ? I think no. Even the heavy weight like mighty M1Abrams will find it difficult to survive.Yeah, IN navy atleast should have asks for 650 mm torpedo tubes for P75I ,in order to accomodate brahmos.
And I do agree that our armed forces will go blindly for unnecessary gears, just like IA new obsession with light tanks. Even heavily armored tank itself is getting obsolete slowly,now IA wants lightbtanks,only God know how many lightbtanks will get knocked out innthe first few hours war. Instead IA should spend money on 105mm howitzers & Oshkosh type armored troop carriers in Ladakh.
What IA need in Ladakh is 105mm high mobility howitzers for direct fire. Kalyani have a product,go for it and increase the inventory of Apaches now ( I don't bet on LCH,a toothless helicopter).
Great, you bring 60 year old scenario.
