Re: Armoured Vehicles Discussion Thread - Jan 12, 2012

Was the torsion bar which connected the IRST 120mm rifled? Is that why it broke? Unlike the smoothbore 125mm torsion bar. ;) Arjun has a FLIR, not an IRST. And it works well....don't get taken in by the fun we are having, at the expense of the trolls who in turn, have had way too much fun at the ex...

Re: Armoured Vehicles Discussion Thread - Jan 12, 2012

What about the bridges on the other side ? Now, this looks like a very serious problem with Arjun MBT and solution to that would be, that we build bridges (of course with tax payer’s money)on the other side of the border to solve this Issue. But, must agree, what a meticulous planning by Porkis, as...

Sorry Sir !! I wasn't agreeing with you in anyway... I was rather :rotfl:, which probably you have overlooked on purpose.. ?
