being compared with Abrams is a good sign even if it has less chances of win ,because Arjun is our first indigenous effort, moreover as i side if the profile (turret ring gap etc) is improved before production starts + trophy is already ordered so only thing wud be firepower ,a good 125mm/130mm gun (drdo is working on it) wud be suffiecientWhoa there!.. There's no need for that much self-degradation either. Just stay real.
Combat is never simplistic nor symmetrical.
Abrams is perfectly killable by Arjun's ATGM & by gun too, if you know what you're doing. Arjun wants to get into any tank engagement from either high-ground or hull down, to hide its lower glacis & not engage the tank directly infront of you but the ones at an angle. War is a team game, not duel.

At any high angle shot you have guaranteed mobility kill on an both Abrams & Leopard2. Arjun may be accurate enough to actually hit the turret ring gap & kill the whole crew.
For leopard you want to hot as low as possible in the hull, ideally through the flanks & you'll have a guaranteed cookoff.
