It's superior in all parameters other than being more heavily built.Right. ATAGS is not SUV and ATHOS is not Tata Sumo. Is It ?
you do get two T-90 for the price of one Arjun !
...And BOTH T-90s royally break down, in a really short run on flat ground, in front of the whole world to see the exact sorry condition of India's armour.
It took Indian Army 30 years to convince DRDO / OFB that there were problems with INSAS but they needed Nepalese, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka Armies to throw their INSAS on their faces.
Exactly! INSAS was the crap that Army should have inducted in limited numbers & rejected for being problematic. Nobody is supporting quality compromise, but the opposite... both desi & phoren.Indian Army in particular has suffered tremendously due to DRDO / OFB they being their major suppliers.
That's one thing & nefarious distortion of parameters is another.Armament technologies and nature of warfare has been changing at a very vast pace. So what army requires today may not be vaild five years hence. GSQR are bound to change with changing technology and needs of warfare. Any one who does not understand that has no business to be in DRDO or OFB.
