Just stfu internet generalA 38 ton tank is considered "light". Talk about wasting money. Should have spent that money on UCAV or more importantly try to get some fighter jets for the Air Force.
APFSDS that’s why. I wonder what’s the AP shell penetration specYou need at least 100 modern tanks too hold your ground for a middle size battle. Other wise your enemy armory will penetrate you line like knife cutting butter. Unless, you have overpowered air force which are super expensive.
VT-5 is THE best tank that weight under 40 ton. Excellent use for low infrastructure area and muddy field.
If your heavy tank cant reach the front line...it's useless.
By the way. VT-5 have most powerful 105mm gun in the world. Here is the test for it. 550mm steel at 2km.
SubsWe will need to induct aircraft carriers in the long term if we want develop the ability to counter a naval blockade by India. (Stress on "need"; does not necessarily mean we can afford)
The presence of Indian military bases and ports in Andaman Nicober Islands and along their South Eastern coastline enables their ships and fighter jets to maintain a sustained presence around Bangladesh's Sea boundaries. BN frigates and BAF fighter jets based in Southern Bangladesh alone cannot negate such a strategic advantage for India as we need sustained military presence in the area marked in red (range and refuelling issues). Only aircraft carriers can neutralise these Indian installations to keep our sea lines clear.

Six, not 2... six in Pearl Harbor and 4 lost at midway- Japan built 22 aircraft carriers before 1940. Only 2 of these carriers were taken near Hawai to invade the US military installations there during WWll
