In opinion, although India and Russia are both gearing up for building a Smart Future Tank, since both forces are in a dying need of modernization, still their MBT is inventories are sufficiently equipped with T-90s. Both the nation are highly unlikely to face any major confrontation with their respective neigbours and hence speedy progress of this project is under very high question mark. What kind of a agenda is set up by both the partners is still not in a public since conducting a meetings and publishing of intention to carry out such a Multi Billion Project doesn't in itself signify readiness of both the nation to come out with end result. Building a MBT is a huge task, no matter even if you have a extensive experience as Battlefield is fast changing which is in some cases turning into Heat and run in nature. Hence producing such a futuristic task need visionery thinking, since Indian Army is not a kind of a Force which has a deeper pockets to shell out bucks to whatever need arises. My lack of desire in above para steam from the fact that, there hasn't been enough progress being done in to jointly improving and carrying out Network Centeric warfare capabilities between both the nation, which very basis of Tank battle in future.
