Too bad.
Had they used the ATGMs, we would be seeing an Urban-Kit modernized version of Al Zarrar today.
Had they used ATGMs against our armour and/or infantry, then our tactics would've evolved to counter the threat, which would mean the threat of atgms posed to our tanks would be negligible.

India could not have that. Hence why they told their puppets to make IEDs with them and also why they didn't give any actual atgm launchers to them.


if they did give the launchers regardless, then we effectively neutralised them before they could use them alhamdulillah.

Our Armoured regts have the following composition:
3×squadrons= 14×3= 42 tanks
Plus there are 2 tanks in the BN HQs aswell. Thus,
total number of Tanks in a regt= 44
Why not have:
4× squadrons of 12 tanks each,thus;
4×squadrons= 12×4 = 48 tanks.
Thus in this new arrangement there will be four companies instead of three.
I know if this change is implemented then the training manuals and company level tactics etc will have to be a bit modified but the pros overshadow the cons. The CO will have a D company which will act as a reserve. This reserve company can be used for supporting other companies, replacing depleted ones, conduct wide flanking manoeuvres, conducting aggressive raids, feints, filling in gaps or preventing breakthroughs if the unit is on the defensive. This all with only an addition of 4 tanks.
P.S, our neighbour has 60 tanks in a regt or 45?

First, whatever you proposed is already being done without having the fourth squadron..... Moreover, the frontage which a tank regiment covers is too large, a fourth squadron will add to difficulties of the commanding officer regarding to command and control of his regiment.....

Moreover, our neighbor has 45 tanks in its regiment, not 60.
