Re: Armoured Vehicles Discussion Thread

^^ I seriously think India needs to construct another HVF. The country doesn't lack technology now, and if placed in an area that lacks employment, it can create huge rewards for the local populace, plus production can atleast be doubled. Country wins, Army wins. I am extremely happy to see that the...
