Re: Artillery Corps: News & Discussion

If SP Arty Viajra goes to Ladakh, it will be in support of the Armd Bde or Inf Bde but not under command. It will be under command of Div Arty or Corps Arty. In my opinion it can support both inf and tanks so just because it is based on a tracked veh does not mean it should only be for armour. It ca...
