Well, I was battling another stupidity in form of Chinese Virus. So I let go off others for the time being.that comment was like some 2-3 weeks old. so it took you 2-3 weeks to study and answer back again.
Yes. That's a good thing to say. You are concerned about 93 kg, but not with 9071 kg.i used 40 tonne as a figure of speech to represent medium mass category tanks. if you want to be a grammer nazi, fine then. we also deployed 14.3 tonne BMP-2/2k not just vajra and T-90S. also i said Tonne not Ton. both are different. since you want to argue on particulars rather than the concept.
I could see why our engineers sucks in giving a practical design now.so what? if we deploy 3 vehicle convoy.
the vehicles travel on ground separately. they don't piggy back on each other. ground pressure is what matters not the overall mass. overall mass matters during transportation.
the enemy isn't pakistan terrorists. the enemy is a fully equipped chinese army.
they don't use small bunkers to hide, attack and run away.
you need a weapon that is capable of area destruction not point destruction like artillery guns.
If you for once have read about the Ramjet artillery program of India, you would have known that the person whose interview you have quoted is the same person who is leading the Ramjet artillery program, Lt Gen P Ravi Shankar, Professor of Practice at IIT,M. So rest in peace.i don't need to hear about battlefield requirements from a scientist. i would hear it from army staff.
i don't need to hear about engineering designs from army. i would hear it from an armament engineer or a scientist.

Lt Gen. P. Ravi Shankar, former director-general, artillery, on the need for India to fill the gaps in its rocket artillery and train at high altitudeswww.indiatoday.in
solid ducted ramjet technology is still in adolescence stage. china won't wait until 2030's or 40's for us to develop & deploy ramjet artillery
why do you need extended range artillery guns when you yourself pointed out that its more of a close combat warfare. you contradicted yourself.
As for the last line, I mentioned that when you want artillery fire support within 10's of meter of your position, it is the guns which is going to provide you that, not rockets. Its not like when enemy is within 100 meter of you in a mountain, you would ask for rockets on that position. Imprint this on your knowledge bank.
BTW, have you heard about MBPKS? Go and read about it. Its the new weapon system IA wants especially for mountain warfare.
