Kestrel can take in different turrets apart from chindi lmg.
Dunno if it can fit a tank turret like this ching APC, but the earliest pics of it had a BMP2 turret slapped on.

Surprising Tata till now hasn't made one of those 30mm cannon, remotely controlled with anti armor missile turrets yet.
P in WhaP stands for platform, many more versions of this will come in coming decades.
but before more variants are ordered, baseline variant itself will need to be validated in active service.

Sorry, Stryker was at the top of my mind, considering they said no to the BTR90 and BMP3.
Also I read on wiki 200 Kestrels on order, is it true?

Thanks, didn't know this.
btw can you literally take the turret of something like a t72 and install it to one of these with small modifications or does it need a custom built tank turret?

105 mm turret will do i think, since this platform's primary purpose is people mover hence the weight of 25 tonnes and light frame.

Tank repair and refurbishment facility, Tangtse.

Lot, a lot of signaling since yesterday. Wonder if this is due to the anticipated Chinese aggression.

UCP camo should work well in Ladakh, better than our old and new camo.

Why do you need coords mate, you wanna send a PGM that way ? I already revealed the general area which should have not been known to the general public in any case.

I already see black cars pulling in front of my residence

I will not do it again.

The gentleman is from parachute regt. The waist belt looks comedic though. But UCP will not blend properly in other areas in Ladakh, the landscape is pretty colorful actually. The best is just ITBP-type faded brown.

No, our new camo works better than UCP in Ladakh any day. UCP is made to be average in every terrain. However Chinese western-theatre camo will be better than both of them.
