Re: Artillery Corps: News & Discussion

Coming to think of it, there is a reason why the IA and IAF are keen on Helina & SANT (besides their anti-tank role). With their 7 Km & 15 Km ranges, our helis can stay comfortably outside the MANPAD range (5 Km) and take out sangars/bunkers at will. If need be, IA"s organic assets can ...

Re: Artillery Corps: News & Discussion

Ramana: another option could be a laser-guided Helina. Or a heavier version of CLGM/SAMHO. With its 8 Kg directional warhead & laser-guided accuracy, it will reliably destroy sangars/bunkers. It can be carried on tanks, armored vehicles, helis etc. Will be cheaper than NAG/Helina because of its ...

Re: Artillery Corps: News & Discussion

For bunker busting, why not develop a parachute-retarded, sensor fuzed, HESH round?

Something that's lobbed in the general vicinity of the bunker/sangar, in a top-attack mode, has an IIR sensor which seeks out the target and deploys the HESH warhead. Good for spall damage inside the structure

If so, there might be another angle to this. Pakis, with help from the Chinese, might use their lone operational sub as a 2nd strike platform. There might be more to this than meets the eye.
