    India Army has more than 2400 T-72 tanks. IA is ready to invest millions of US $ for up gradation of these obsolete T-72 tanks but will not accept Arjun.

    It is also a fact that 70-80% of T-72 tanks are night blind. Is it about getting lot of commissions from the Russians??

    Present CAS is a cheat(anda choor) so will be his team. No hopes till all of them are retired or court-marshaled.

    If you read a few posts above I have given reasons why the Arjun will not fit the IA's requirements.

    Stupid journalists, these pic should nt have been posted at all, this give away our secrets............

    Crew of Markava tank paid with their lives, when the pics of Markava were posted on website which allowed the Palestinian and hisbulla fighters to study its weekness.........

    These journalist some times forget what to public or release and what not............

    I remember Shiv arror posted the pic showing exact position where the amo is stored in arjun tank......

    This si getting more and more ridiculous day by day there is no merit in spending 5 Cr to refurbish a T-72 when we have a new tank waiting to take it's place.The T-90 can stay but the arjun should be given it's due after decommissioning the T-72

    I hope Antony will do something about it and push Arjun down the Army's throat. What Army is doing doesn't make sense at all. MoD can give Army more money to replace the logistics system of T-72 with that of Arjun if logistics that big a issue. That way all our money will be well spent and will also get more bang per buck compared to upgraded T-72 which will still fall short of Arjun's capabilities.

    May be the army is acting like this because it wants to replace T72 with T95s. Of-course no one knows when it will come out!
    So the army should at least induct another 400 arjuns so that DRDO gets the required encouragement and starts working on Arjun MK2. Don't think such a decision would adversely affect army's plans (if this indeed is the reason). This way hopefully when T95 is out Arjun MK2 will also be out and army can decide among them by a similar comparative trial.

    Why are they still sticking on to T-72 is not understandable? Arjun will be soon under comparative trials against Russian T-90s, with improved electronics, engine and firing system and one of the best known for its Armor and Maneuverability ....It will no doubt outsmart T-90s....If that comes out as a result of the trials ....Then why spend so much on T-72 ? Why not pump in money for Arjun's Production facilities/Infrastructure for faster production.....!! Sheer wastage of money for selfish gains!!

    or it has something to do with Tank EX Project?
