    Well, the Chinese have done really good in terms of developing a great MBT in type 96 and 99. Wish we also come up with something as good.

    Arjun is far superior in terms of Armour module, FCS, Transmission and Electronics not to mention Ammo and Gun..

    Hell T-90 could out rank it..

    ^ The T-90 can, but its Russian. And, I am referring to the Type 99 KM. Its a good bang for the buck considering its 1.7 million dollars cheaper than the Arjun. Its faster than the Arjun, has greater range, has a 2100 hp engine, higher power to weight ratio. Smoothbore guns have very less barrel wear compared to rifled guns and have greater suitability for APFSDS rounds. Even the new FCS on Arjun developed by BEL are known to have malfunctioned frequently when exposed to high temperatures, like in deserts. Plus Type 99 can carry 63 rounds compared to the Arjun's 39 and has an autoloader. Transmission on both tanks are German, Arjun using the MTU 838 Ka 501 and Type 99 using the German derived MB871 Ka 501.

    Type 99KM
    The newest and much-improved variant, with newer modular active protection system, JD-4 active laser defense system, more powerful 2100-hp engine, and more. It is also equipped with a 155 mm gun capable of firing missiles and next-generation kinetic rounds.

    The Arjun will show its true colours when the Mk2 variant is unveiled, I suppose. Arjun's Kanchan armor is good, but no specific details are available for armor on Type 99. And, most of the electronics and navigation on Arjun is of Israeli and French origin, with most systems being developed by DRDO are yet to be adopted and tested.

    Their is no KM..

    Their is no 2100hp engine..

    Not longer Rods than Arjun Ammo ( APFSDS ) Hence inferior..
    Old news

    Auto loader is the problem for shorter rods and the no is not 63 if so its BS by CHI-COM-GOV..

    Their is no 155mm Tank gun exists..

    Next gen KE rounds are used by Type-96 too so does AlKhalid, Name few..

    MK-1 is lot better tank in Indian Arsenal, Type-99 is a close to MK-1 but just not developed yet..

    This is 99-3..

    Btw, PLA tanks are Up-armored T-55/62/72 copies and mutations..

    how can you compare these tanks with Arjun.
    its like the comparing a t90 to abrham or what have you
    despite the larger chasis needed for the larger engine,
    the turret still isn't large enough.
    the ammo is not stored in a sperate compartment.
    this is why they are armouring these t series family of tanks with strap on era.
    to reduce the damage from rpgs that may cause a spark.
    its comparable to a t90 and better interms of powerplant but everything else, the gun, thermal sights etc..
    there pretty much the same fruits off the same tree.
    the arjun is from another tree.
    apple or orange.
    but interms of broad strategic value
    a tank is a tank.

    PLA is preparing to become superpower’s army. There MBTs may be inferior to western MBTs as of now but infuture it will be equal. PLA will have capability to mass produce good quality MBTs in faster way like USSR. This will give them the capability to fight wars in several fronts for several years. We will always lack that capability
     
  21. stop dreaming.when was the last time the chinese has producesd an indegeneous military equipment without copying? even the j-20 is an adaptation of mig1.44
