If Tanks have to evolve, which path they should follow?

  1. Light Vehicles-Best for mobility

    Why are you raising irrelevant points?
    Don't you know its only indigenous platforms that must work perfectly well under all conditions.
    Its all right though when t-90s electronics conk off because its too hot, su-30s have sub par utilisation or almost every single fighter jet coming into the IAF sees problems with radar / avionics which only get fixed over time.

    Tech is nice to have but nothing can substitute for tactics and training.
    Thats why every single Indian army exercise you see BMPs alongside the tanks.
    A bunch of Britards were mucking the Arjun and comparing it to the Leo 2.
    What happened to the super duper Leos in Turkey where Erdoğan's brightest sent in the tanks without infantry support.

    Tanks need active protection systems like Trophy for most tank battles (which almost always happen in open and exposed fields). In open fields tanks are vulnetable to modern and much cheaper ATGMs.That's why active protection system is now a must in modern battles involving tanks.

    There are very fiew if not none at all tank battles in dense forest. Tanks cannot maneuver, cannot aim and cannot use its main gun in confined spaces of a forested area. Besides, if ever tanks go into forested ares for short cut then they will be protected by dismounted infantries. Without dismounted infantries tanks are toast in this kind of battle area.

    They extinguish fires in extreme conditions (a large fire in the forest, a fire at a chemical plant, radio pollution of the area, explosions at arsenals, etc.)

    Yes. But only on paper. This is a project of one of the private companies. None of their projects are approved for operation. The company went bankrupt and closed long ago.

    No tank can withstand even basic ATGM unless APS (active protection system) is installed. India needs to speed up installing APS from Israel or SAAB South Africa ASAP.
