Indians plan to equip Bhishma with self-developed missiles

Tanks "Bhishma" Indian Army


The Indian Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO, Defense Research and Development Organization) has been developing the Man-Portable Anti-tank Guided Missile (MPATGM) anti-tank system for several years. These rocket launchers have already partially passed military acceptance and should soon enter service with the army. For tanks "Bhishma" Indian ATGM will be supplied in a modification of Invar ATGM.

Indian ATGMs are capable of hitting targets at a distance of 5,5 km, and their next modification will make it possible to destroy armored vehicles that are located at a distance of up to 8 km with missiles. The Indian Defense Ministry indicates that equipping new-generation ATGM tanks will make it possible to use armored vehicles in high-altitude areas much more efficiently (for these purposes it is planned to equip Indian tanks with new, more powerful engines), reports "Warspot"

    Knowing the Indians, it would be possible to assume that this is a dust in the eye to bring down prices. Something to buy. As always with the Indians.
    In vain we only sell ...

      Why's that? You recall that thanks to the Indians in general, we have a T-90? They pay a living penny, and do not take on credit, like some customers.

      Knowing what kind of "specialists" they are, I understand that you need to stay away from their "development".

      The arms race is on and on in the world ... the Indians are no exception. China and Pakistan do not sit with their hands and develop their weapons to the liking of the Indians as well.

    Israel supplies Lahat rockets for their Arjun tank. But they are 105 mm (from 120 mm they shoot
    as sub-caliber) and rather weak for tank combat.
    They definitely won’t fit into the AZ T-90, but if there is a tank in the tank where to store them, then Lahats can be used for
    T-90 to adapt.

      For such missiles it is necessary to rebuild the entire tank does it make sense?

        The IDF tankers refused them. 105 mm cumm no longer provides
        reliable penetrations. Laser guidance "all the way" to the target is also already "not fashionable."
        As a helicopter anti-tank missile LAHAT remained.

    And lope costs Lahat do not remember? Basic - $ 25000, the modern version is even more expensive. So why should the Indians overpay? Is logical.

    Indian Defense Ministry Announces Upcoming Bhisma Tank Modernization (T-90S Tank Name in Indian Army)

    Why would the Indians modify the T-90? They themselves said that the tanks are bad. Let them buy their own, unless, of course, they find them.

    Tanks can’t do it. A gun too. The simplest shells are purchased in Russia and Bulgaria. And here on you, almost flying to Mars.

      Yes. And another option. In the event of a missile, the rocket returns to the launch point. Like a boomerang.
      So it’s better not to miss.
