    Can't any one explain the blast here? .... what type of shell can do this and isn't is dangerous to the operation OR this is testing the limits of the barrel ie/ safe guards from barrel burst?

    We sure can and I'm sure several Indian manufacturers like MRF, CEAT etc. were part of the tendering process. It's likely that Pirelli proved to be the lowest bidder.

    Don't forget - the company maybe owned by China but the tires themselves are made in India.
