VT4 is claimed to be superior to T90 and Arjun.
Earlier they claimed the same for Al-Khalid. If AK was as claimed then why go for VT-4 at all? They also claim Kashmir. They also claim to be Arabic/Turkic. So don't take their claims too seriously!


You may see a tank, I see a rocking chair.. Can hit anything within few football field lengths of the designated target.

compare that to the superbly stabilized beast on the move spitting fire:


For even more fun Chinese mil exports read here:

"In Africa, Cameroon procured four Harbin Z-9 attack helicopters in 2015: one crashed shortly after being handed over. Kenya invested in Norinco VN4 armoured personnel carriers - vehicles that China's own sales representative declined to sit inside during a test firing. But since going ahead with the purchase regardless, sadly dozens of Kenyan personnel have been reportedly killed in those vehicles..."

How arjun mk1a compares to that vt4 tank , porkies have got from chene
Ok, let's see.
In terms of Armor protection (despite the weak zones) and post penetration crew survivability The MkIA beats the VT-4 hands down. Although, the VT-4 comes with the GL-5 hard-kill APS which the former lacks.
In terms of accuracy of the FCS, they should be quite comparable to each other.
In terms of mobility and main gun performance however, I'd give the edge to VT-4 for the time being.

Hope this answers your question.

But did the VT-4s Pakistan buy have the APS?
