    MBTs even with 1500 hp engine can't be operated in all places of Himalayan terrain. To make it accessable in most part we need light tanks. Light tanks are solely China centric. Chinese have deployed their own light tanks and tankdestroyers (wheeled platform) . We will follow same.

    Plus minus 7 tonne weight.

    I think it is a good chance for Arjun mk2,if the guys at cvrde are able to bring its weight down,then it can be the fort runner.

    CVRDE's NGMBT isnt a Arjun platform, it's a whole different design.

    Well, IA just announced the FRCV program, which pretty much the DRDO anticipated with the NGMBT, DRDO will need to find a production agency, if they are not going with OFB will need to pitch it with international companies and their private sector SPs..
