APFSDS is only useful for making neat little holes in tanks, the tank armour and the tungsten or DU penetrator (just a huge metal crossbow bolt without any explosives) results in a spray of molten metal and shrapnel on the inside from the impact. This does not always happen and sometimes the round will pass right through both sides of the tank, in these cases you need to hope for a lucky shot to hit someone or something critical inside the tank.
Against a more organic target like a Bunker or even against troops in the open, APFSDS will not be able to hit a hard enough surface to be able to break into shrapnel. So in essence you are shooting a giant crossbow bolt at above the speed of sound and hoping you hit someone.
As suggested above, HESH (the equivalent of a molotov cocktail but with high explosives instead of fuel) would work a lot better.
But why go that far, using the tank for protection and just using the co-axial machine gun would be enough. I doubt the terrorists brought anti tank weapons with them.
P.S. The article states that the terrorists were dressed in army uniforms, is this a new tactic adopted by the porkis? I dont recall hearing of them using our uniforms to ambush in the past.
