Re: Armoured Vehicles: News & Discussion

An alternative solution could be to mount Namica missile firing turret on the flatbed back of Kalyani M4 vehicle. Or the Stallion truck flatbed. That will be a quick and ready solution for any armoured thrust from the PRC. They will both be lighter than the Namica. And can be driven to most of the b...

If the Army's leadership is unable to come up with a specific set of requirements for the next decade. Perhaps a better way could be to standardise the weapons operations principles and then tailor the system to different ammunition types.

It would atleast simplify the training of men.
