    Thanx for the reply however I would like to add something rifle remains same but its purpose changes our soldier gets ambushed in forest for daily basis in naxal affected areas and J/K and for these situations one needs to fire as many rounds he can in every possible direction and they also gets outnumbered (same is the case with urban combats) in these situations you can only suppress your enemy with fire only if you have an auto mode in your rifle (single MG in these situations don't do much good)...


    Did you mean mag and belt fed cause I thought drum is just a diff kind of mag only.:shocked:

    Burst mode do the same, In full auto one cannot keep its trigger pressed as the barrel tend to go upwards, Even in auto men do burst ..


    Drum is another kind of Mag, I mixed it with Belt, My bad..

    Drum is a good but reloading it is very complex compare to belt feed once..

    What is an MMRT ? We have the Dhruv instead of the Fennec.
    I double all the others though.

    You just talk the talk, where's the link for all that you have mentioned ?

    I totally agree with you on this one. There's a thread on a similar light mech.

    I meant MRTT...



    The Dhruv is a 1000shp+ dual engine helicopter. The LUH is single engine 1000shp - so two different classes.

    About the German PzF 3 being better than the RPG 29. The RPG 29 has done exactly what it is supposed to do, still criticism comes along with the Russian equipment.

    Also I chose the HOT because it was both tube launched and because of it's performance in Libya.

    It is a very simple thing. The performance of HEAT warheads depends on the caliber of the shaped charge, the explosive filler and the liner material. If we assume that both Russia and Germany use a similar level of technology, then the PzF 3 will end being better, because it can (and does) use larger warheads.
    By this PoV the RPG-7 is even "better" than the RPG-29 - not because it offers superior performance at the moment, but because it was capable of staying a potent threat even nowadays. The warhead of the RPG-7 ammunition is not inside of the launching tube, so performance could be increased; the diameterof the warhead increased from 73 mm in the 60s to a 105 mm tandem warhead in the PG-7VR projectile, which offers penetration performance similar to the RPG-29. The main problem with the RPG-7 (except it's old age and outdated materials) is that the launching tube is limited diameter, which means that larger warheads will be slower and therefore have low velocity and range. The RPG-29 has twice the velocity and range than the PG-7VR projectile.
    The PzF 3 is designed in such a way, that the launching tube is part of the ammunition. So both launching tube diameter and projectile diameter can be changed, while the original launcher can be retained. The manufacturer has developed several versions ranging from 60 mm and 90 mm (e.g. used by Switzerland) to the basic German version with a 110 mm warhead, if required an even larger version could be designed in the future, using the same launch unit - not possible with the RPG-29. The claimed penetration for the latest version (PzF 3-IT-600) is about 1,000 mm RHA (which is still too less to beat a PT-91 with ERAWA-2 ERA). Another significant advantage of the PzF 3 is that its launcher is incorporating a laser rangefinder and a ballistic computer. The main drawback is pretty clearly that less ammo can be carried by a single soldier.
    Here are two packed PzF 3 launch unit:

    And here is a loaded launcher and ammo:

    Yes, it is a good missile, but you presented the basic version with 800 mm RHA penetration and no tandem warhead. Even though, India has NAG for the NAMICA ATGM carrier.
    HOT is being replaced in most countries. Germany uses PARS-3, French wants to have the Hellfire-2, Spain went with Spike.

    I m guessing the price would be out of range. To be honest I like the RPG range of vintage weapons as it still proves it's mettle today. I m guessing the PzF3 is going to be very expensive.



    Why is the HOT missile being replaced though it has a good track, any ideas ?
    Would love if the Nag would come ASAP.

    7 QUICK REACTION UNITS( A Replacement for the earlier 7)

    TATRAPAN or AVGP(with modifications) as a replacement for all the outdated wheeled vehicles like BRDM 2, OT 64 SKOT!

    TATRAPAN

    AVGP

    Note: AVGP has dimensions similar to that of Casspir/ Mine Protected Vehicle (OFB)! Plus 6X6 brings the advantage of equal weight distribution and more tyres.
