That is supposed to be the plan.

The C295W for Bangladesh Army Aviation is qualified for transport of troops and bulky/palletized cargo, para-trooping and medical evacuation.

This is the first multi-engine fixed-wing aircraft to be operated by Bangladesh Army in liaison role however with the way things are going, Army is going to end up needing more than one or two.

they're not even in the same class

Eh?

On what basis?

From what I can tell most specs (claimed) are identical, except that NLAWs are super expensive ($30,000 a copy for basic model) while (a guess) Alcotans will be significantly cheaper. Also, blast yield for Alcotan rounds are a lot larger. Take a look. Differences are minimal.

You're pushing for something that has no traditional precedent simply to look cool

One is a third gen, guided, top attack capable anti tank missile while the other is not? Alcotan is basically a bigger C90 which is also unguided

Also blast yield is irrelevant. What's more important is armor penetration
