    During War PA had American origin WLR, Due to these Bofors Guns have to move constantly and simultaneously M-46 guns had to engage in counter battery fire ..

    Keep it coming Kumal Biswas

    I love it.

    Dramatic change in tone and first hand account from the officers and Jawans who used this equipment in a battle. Totally unlike cry babies who are critical of every piece military hardware we have.

    Keep these posts coming. Add airmen and seamen saga also.

    Actually, it was Brig Lakhwinder using Bofors in Direct Firing Role that did the trick.
