Tsarkar-ji, if you take out the armor and the main gun, it is a missile carrier - no longer a tank. It too has an important role in th future, but it does not replace a tank. ParGha Ji, you have missile armed destroyers and frigates rather than gun and armoured Yamato and Iowa class battleships. Th...

Makes it even more important to get out of GE dependency. Even if that means 10% performance shortfall What does a 10% shortfall in engine performance mean for the aircraft.
