Re: Armoured Vehicles Discussion Thread - August 9, 2014

I think just like the airforce there must 600 tank heavy weight category tanks separately filled by Arjun. Lighter tanks should form most of the armoured regiments. Arjun type heavies can be kept mainly desert sectors Aditya_V, The 1965 ended the light tank. US M-48 Pattons being massacred by upgun...
