no. not at allComrades , I have a question about this PCB ammunition of arjun , can it be compared M829a2 round ?
PCB is only used for multi layered spaced bunkers and thin armoured vehicles like BMPs and american bradleys without ERA.
HESH for single layered mud and brick bunkers. found in thousands across rajasthan, punjab and kashmir regions.
TB against infantry in open spaces.
HEAT for only thick concrete bunkers. since it has a rifled gun.
of course for smooth bore guns, they have to fire heat for every small bunker they find here and there.
samho clgm can be fired in both top and direct attack mode. it can destroy every tank in the world that don't have APS attached. name of the tank doesn't matter.
that too top attack as close as 1.5 km to 5km far in top attack mode.
so total types of ammo for arjun
FSAPDS, HEAT, HESH, HE, PCB, TB, ATGM( anti-tank guided missile- both direct and top attack mode in semi-active homing method) = 7 TYPES.
mean while T-90 series fires APFSDS, HEAT, ATGM & abrams series fires only 2 types APFSDS, HEAT.
