    I could have added few more, If it was written in English , well

    When Pakistan rolls T 80 from Ukraine , Our Army guys have no option but to get what Russia offers, with lot of kickbacks and shits , When they know Russia fucked us with that monkey T 90 , we again have no option but just to buy in numbers and overwhelm Pakistani Tank coloumn

    The main issue here is, Our idiotic Military officers and Think tanks have no idea to counter the enemy even before they adopt new fighting option , This was proven again and again, Once the enemy brings new attack method or inducted new technology , then only we ask DRDO to make similar one or buy from foregin,

    We all saw what happend post Balakot strike, still we are handicapped infront of PAF

    I've heard from many served officials, that the testing items and initial products are in good quality, while they start delivering in large numbers, the quality sucks

    Just think how many guys we lost cuz of fault Mines developed by our DPSU's, are they accountable for the crime that they committed

    Well for that I think quality assurance must be done.
    Just few months before there was news na how armed forces were not satisfied with qualities and then government made some decision.

    Sounds nice, we have enough option to counter the PA armours, So is it time to stop buying more T90 and invest the amount in FMBT program

    whats the reason to waste around 13,000 cr for just 464 Tanks, are the govt and army officials are idiots or kinda corrupted asses

    see, we just buy the old platforms , once Pakistan induct newer generation tank , then only we wake up and invest in FMBT ,

    We have CAG , yet no one cares , DPSU rules the Ministry and military officials with providing girls money foreign tours and post retirement beneifts, by sacrificing frontline soldiers life

    India have to move away from foreign maal ... Russians are fooling us with T-90 ... India can have a hard look at the South Korean K2 Black Panther ... If we order in good numbers it will be a good option after K-9 Self Propelled Howitzer ...

    South Koreans are open to technology transfer and K2 can be customized to Indian needs...

    K2 is a 55 Tons with good fire power and self protection ...

    K2 is a 55 Tons with three man crew ... South Koreans are open to technology transfer unlike what we have seen with the Russians did with T-90 transfers...

    K2 can be quickly Indianized as per IA requirement... We have good experience with K9 ...

    else we have to go for a new Tank design probably with Israel and that will be another 15 years ...

    Indian Army it seems has made up it mind for not to accept a 60 / 65 Tons Arjun Mark 2 ...

    One hear that DRDO is working on a lighter Arjun Mark - 3 with a three man crew and re designed turret ... that will bring down the weight to 55 tons...

    Our real problem is poor project management ... In next 10 years we have to bring down the import content to 10 - 15 % max else we will continue to pay a high import bill ..

    #Indian Army inducts limited number of Israeli 'tank killers’ till DRDO develops indigenous ones

    .

    Indian infantry soldiers now finally have a new weapon to destroy advancing enemy tanks on the western front with Pakistan.

    The Army has begun to induct a limited number of Israeli Spike anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) to meet immediate operational requirements till the indigenous man-portable “tank killers” being developed by DRDO are ready for induction.

    Sources on Thursday said the “first lot” of the 210 Spike missiles, with a dozen launchers, “arrived in India about 10 days ago” as part of the “Army vice chief’s emergency procurement powers” exercised by the force amidst the ongoing heightened tensions with Pakistan.

    The Army moved to buy the initial amount of the fire-and-forget Spike ATGMs, which have a strike range of up to 4-km, for around Rs 280 crore after the Jaish-e-Muhammed training facility at Balakot in Pakistan was bombed by Indian Mirage-2000 fighters on February 26.

    “The order will be repeated if the man-portable ATGM being developed by DRDO is not ready by next year. We don’t want to be slowed down any longer in plugging our critical operational deficiencies by DRDO,” said an Army source.

    DRDO, however, is quite confident about offering its MP-ATGM for “user trials” in 2020 after having conducted three successful trials of the weapon system at the Kurnool range in Andhra Pradesh in early last month.

    “The third-generation MP-ATGM, which has state-of-the-art infrared imaging seekers along with advanced avionics, hit the targets mimicking operational tanks in top-attack mode to destroy them with precision at 2.5 km range,” said a DRDO official.

    Whether it’s indigenous or Israeli man-portable “tank killers”, the fact remains the 13-lakh strong Army has an alarming over 50% shortage in its “authorised holding” of different kinds of shoulder, vehicle and helicopter-launched ATGMs, which are crucial to halt advancing enemy tanks in the plains as well as “bunker-bursting” across the volatile line of control with Pakistan.

    The Army’s existing second-generation Milan-2T (2-km range) and Konkurs (4-km) ATGMs, produced by defence PSU Bharat Dynamics under licence from French and Russian companies, do not have night-fighting capabilities.

    The Army for well over a decade has been clamouring to upgrade from these wire-guided ATGMs to third and fourth-generation ones that are top-attack, fire-and-forget and night-capable. In late 2017, India had scrapped a proposed Rs 3,200 crore deal for 8,356 Spike missiles, 321 launchers and 15 simulators that had been first approved by the Defence Acquisitions Council in June 2009.

    This was primarily because the DRDO said it could deliver a more technologically advanced MP-ATGM in the next two-three years, as was then reported by TOI. The Army is now keeping its fingers crossed, keen as it is on equipping all its over 380 infantry battalions and 44 mechanised infantry units with third and fourth-generation ATGMs in the long run.
