Re: Armour Technology Thread

I dont think the russians have got anything that can penetrate the front of the M1A2s turret, if there were such a system then I think that the US Army would adopt some sort of ERA system, but since they havent done that they must be pretty sure that their tanks are more or less invulnerable to curr...

Re: Armour Technology Thread

Guru, the only "ATGM" I can think of that could probably blast through M1A2s armour is the Maverick, with the shaped charge warhead, but then again how likely is it that missiles like that would be fired against an Abrams in war.<BR> <A HREF="http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/smart/agm-65.htm" TARG...

Re: MiG-21 replacement estimates

Couldnt the LCA airframe be used for an advanced trainer, I mean alot of money have already been poured into the project. By the time it will be ready for service it will so be out-dated. But to save some of the money spent already turn into a 2-seat advanced trainer.<BR>Could that be done?<P>------...

Re: MiG-21 replacement estimates

I never suggested that the IAF should try and get 1000 Mirage 2000s and Mig-29. I just think its a better idea to have a small air force made up of advanced and highly capable aircraft, rather than having a Big force consisting mainly of B-class aircraft, with a few A-class planes, like the chinese ...
