What are the protection level of Arjun MK1A? as for rifled gun advantage there are limits to...
Theoretically correct, yes.. But as of now it's at part with everything that it'll face. In future definitely a smoothbore 120/125mm with bustle autoloader is our goto with NG-MBT.yes but rheinmetall guns used by abrams, challenger, leopards have 3 times the life of arjun. meaning 6 times the life of indian T-90 guns.
But frankly even with 750mm pen they won't go through the armour modules of each other... so I suspect here local militaries found it kinda pointless, unlike NATO whose tanks fight old T-XXs. The following is the <500mm, ie, penetrable LOS thickness (unknown effective armour thickness but usually lesser) at frontal silhouette. Rest are between 800 to 950mm.
PS: Everything you're ranting about have been discussed before. Please make the effort to go through older posts of these threads yourself instead expecting to be spoonfed.
