Why is it strictly an LOS argument? MRM had greater range that surface launched Hellfire and was (I think) just as volumetrically efficientThe question is how many LOS "anti-tank" stowed kills is needed?
as AMP or the KE penetrators. If you want lightweight MBT guns they can be made lightweight; they just kick harder.
The gun is giving you that initial impetus for a rocket assisted projectile that's very hard to achieve for the same volume of
all-up ATGM. You could appeal to ETC or other techniques to reduce propellant volumes if you really wanted to improve
loadouts; that doesn't seem to have been a major goal recently.
For the non-AT roles, like say wall breaching, it doesn't look like any of the ATGMs or other missiles are nearly as
efficient (in terms of rounds expended to create the desired hole) as the MBT fired multipurpose rounds.
