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

Paul, havent Sweden developed a 120mm HE round for the new Leopard 2 tanks, I think I have read something about such a round in swedish army magazines. Would such a round be as good as a HESH round against a bunker, or some other fortified target.

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

Paul, could you, without using to much math and technical terms explain the advantages and disadvantages of using a smoothbore gun versus a rifled gun.<BR>As most western countries, as well as the Soviets/Russians have gone for a smoothbore gun, there have to be some clear advantage is using them.

Do we for a fact know that the Arjun is based on the Leopard 2, or is it just assumed as they look similar.
