According to Pakistan’s “national newspaper” recently reported that the Pakistan Army in the capital Islamabad, 100 kilometers east of a drill field successfully test-fired a new type of self-produced anti-tank missiles. Indian media quoted officials of the Pakistan Army’s evaluation of the missile, said it will make the Pakistan Army “in the fight a conventional war with rival added a cutting edge.”
independent research and development has been leveraging China
Pakistani media reported that the winter in early December during the exercise, the Pakistan Army “古吉兰瓦拉 Legion” In Jhelum successfully tested a new type of anti-tank missiles. The test area to make Pakistan self-defense a step further. According to India, “Hindustan Times” further speculation, as early as the 1990s, Pakistan in the development of a research institute guided by the conductor, a range of 3,000 meters anti-tank missiles. However, authoritative sources of media, the Pakistani army test-fired a new anti-tank guided missiles, automatic mode, and not equipped with wires, and longer range.
“Hindustan Times” also said that Pakistan had won the Chinese-made anti-tank missiles, and on this basis to improve it, the development known as “Bhakta – Shi Hom” anti-tank missiles. British “Jane’s Defense Weekly,” that, “Bhakta – Shi Hom” is China’s “Red Arrow”-8 on the basis of evolved. Jane’s guess, the use of wire-guided missile is a second generation anti-tank missiles, the system split into four parts, easy to man-portable.
alleged that the missile up to 90% chance of armor, 120 mm diameter warhead allows the missile armor thickness over 800 mm, the power is very impressive. Old types of missiles can still achieve such power, the power of the new missile can imagine. Clearly, the introduction of China on the basis of anti-tank missiles, Pakistan a more active exploration and has made no small achievement.
most conveniently Pakistani army weapons
sophisticated anti-tank missiles are not weapons, but in the hands of Pakistan Army soldiers is probably the most conveniently weapons. As the Pakistan Army’s old rival, the Indian Army has been sparing no effort to strengthen the armored assault force. Since 2001, India has received nearly 700 Russian-made T-90 main battle tanks. Beginning in 2009, Indian-made T-90 tanks of the assembly line in succession, with improved and upgraded T-72 tanks, the Indian Army in 2020 is expected to have 3000 in the high-end main battle tanks.
contrast, the Pakistan Army equipped with T-80U and “Khalid” tanks in quantity and quality has been unable to obtain advantage. The equipment, a large number of inexpensive anti-tank missiles, can weaken the opponent’s “tank advantage.” Therefore, anti-tank missiles into a Pakistani test is naturally an important part of the Army exercises.
present, the Pakistan Army is also facing tough anti-terrorism mission. In the complex terrain of the tribal areas, tanks and other heavy combat vehicles are not smooth, perform the task of cleaning up Pakistani army troops available anti-tank missiles such as the “heavy weapons” to illegal armed elements, snipers hiding in buildings, caves to launch precision strikes for large forces to pave the way forward. Especially as “Bhakta – Shi Hom” anti-tank missiles, such as equipment, can open carry a maximum part weight of only 25 kg, man can carry, ideal for unconventional battlefield.
