DRDO developed powerful ammo for Arjun Tank
Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has developed a new ammunition for India’s main battle tank Arjun. The new ammunition is more destructive than the previous one and was successfully test fired at Chandipur in Odisha. The new Penetration-Cum Blast (PCB) and Thermobaric (TB) Ammunition is specially designed for Arjun. The research was carried out by DRDO’s two labs located in Pashan — Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) and High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL).
An innovative chemical composition has been developed by HEMRL after extensive research for the TB ammunition.
