That'll be the Arjun, it does bear a striking resemblence to the Leo 2 but it has a rifled gun similar to a Challenger...and it isn't cheap...which is part of the problem with it, I do believe the Indians found it more cost effective to continue to produce an improved version of the T72 and/or buy T90s. It was also perhaps a tad too ambitious for India to design and produce all on it's own....

As far as I know India has 3 types of MBTs...locally produced T72s (named Ajeya), locally assembled T90s(Bhishma) and the aforementioned Arjun (although there are not many of those in service, and im not sure there ever will be)

In the past india has used t54/55's, Centurions (i think) and the Vijiyanta(sp) (Locally produced copy of the Vickers MBT) and the PT76 light tank but i don't think any of these types are in service anymore (frontline anyway)

Actually the Armor is their last problem, first come Engine, Transmission and fire control.

They've had problems with its weight. No tank carrier could support it, it couldn't drive anyway cos it'd just sink, lol, a whole host of weight-related problems

The Arjun is lighter then the last occidental tanks, M1A2, Leo 2a6 or challenger. The problem is that India makes a big use of train transportation and the Arjun is too large and heavy for the actual coaches.

Well the Leopard 1 weighs 42 tons. Not much compared to the Arjun's 59

Vandervahn
04-08-2006, 09:35 AM
Leopard 1 is also 30+ years older than the Arjun ;)

Its simple: The Indians wanted their completely domestic tank and went out to produce one in the class of current western MBTs. But they had to learn the hard way that there is a difference between taking a foreign tank and improving upon it, or trying to build one themselves.

BTW, someoneīs gotta hang for those camo paints :S

The Pakistan army has placed an order for 250 of these APCs, which will be delivered over a period of two years by 2005-06. Currently full pilot production is underway at HIT. They plan to include 2,000 of these machines by the year 2010

that is good for pakistan- mechanization is one of the major advantages the indians have over the paks. the Indian army has a bunch of BMp-1's in service, and over 1000 BMP-2, the latters production still continues. This dramatically increases the mobility and firepower of the Indian infantry unit.

you mean the Al-khalid? they hope to haveabout 300 in service by 2007.

and they need it-India is far ahead militarily, although that is something to be expected from a much larger, populous and rich country.

Add AMX-13, M4 Sherman variants, M3A3 Stuarts as well, Centurions confirmed, Vijayantas both as gun tanks and as 130mm SPs named Catapult. The story goes that the Indian tank cerws were so happy with the Centurion that they "preferred it over the newer and lighter Main Battle Tank" quote from Osprey Vanguard book "The Centurion Tank In Battle".
