Re: T-72s in Chechnya, From Armour Magazine

nitin, I still don't understand why the IA would be interested in a 120mm ammo when their guns are 125mm? Am I missing something obvious?

Re: T-72s in Chechnya, From Armour Magazine

Then the question is why would the Indian Army care about 120mm ammo when their current and future MBTs have 125mm guns?

Re: India test-fires indigenous missile [ DHANUSH ]

IMO, Dhanush is more of a tech test bed for the future SLBM. It is utterly useless to create a Ship/Sub LBM that is less than 1000km unless of course the IN is happy playing a tactical role. If the IN wants to play a strategic role i.e. nuclear deterence then it must have a strategic missle.

Re: TSP: Al-Khalid MBT rolls out

Let's not forget that the IA still has numbers. A lot of people flog the line that TSP is better at armor because they can crank out more Al-Khalids than we can Arjun-MBTs but there is a flip side: While the T-72 may not be as apt as the Al-Khalid the IA has 1100+ T-72s in various states of upgradat...
