Indian Army somehow does not favour wheeled fighting A Vehicles unless it has an independent role.High Mobility ,more troops ,ATGMs even there is plan to integrate 105mm gun ,to make it a wheeled tank ,it can be very good in urban environment as well as plains of Punjab who have many water obstacles it is Amphibious, It would also have a role in navy LPD whenever that deal goes through
,Turret won't remain BMP2 30mm ones only there is also a plan for Elbit TurretView attachment 34726 View attachment 34727 View attachment 34728
AFV / ICV are companions of Tanks and must have matching mobility, good fire power and adequate protection. They should be compatible in length / width, weight for using common assault equipment and crossing equipment. They must ahve emphasis on ant atnak fire power.
Hence the preference goes to tracked vehicles.
Wheeled AFVs / IFV can be used for separate tasks such as Recee, Support, Establishing a missile base, Surveillance, target acquisition, Electronic warfare,Ambulances, logistics vehicles.
