In my office we are having discussion on this purchase. All of my colleagues are fixeated on anil Ambani and his deal with Dassault. No amount of facts will change the views that it is just a commercial arrangement between two entities.

Not for Arjun. But perhaps a new vehicle using the technology developed for Arjun is possible in the weight class.

Do we know for sure that Dhanush cannot be upgraded to 52 cal.

Or maybe it can be used in the eastern front where it lighter weight may be or a major advantage.

PS on the issue of bridges in the border areas and the axel load limit on them. Do we know what is the axel load for the atags.
