Below anti drone system from DRDO looked mean. Is it a different one ?

Yes completely different system

The one you posted is an trailer mounted DEW system ( laser ) . It is a hard kill system.

The one in the ANI tweet is a soft kill system with jammers

Idiots behind the ANI report completely mixed up 2 different systems and fucked up both.

Isn't the left side the loader's side?
Did I make a mistake there?
🤔
Bro what's the point of all this confusion.

Left or right side depends on the orientation of the individual observer with respect to the tank. Reason why this nomenclature should never be used as it creates confusion , reason why in ships it is port and starboard which describes the left and right side of the ship independent of which direction the observer is facing .

Loaders side is on the other side of the gunners side ( the portion where the gunners optical port is visible on the tank frontal armour )

Rustom 2 is progressing well...
I have seen 2 tenders ...
The latest one was for fabrication of austro engine....used by rustom 2.....
I believe it's atleast in limited series production phase
There was JV between DRDO and Mahindra right to develop an engine to power Rustom, didn't workout?

LCH will have them in the same location more or less

Note the patched up area near the EO pod , could be one location for one of the sensors.

Are there any plans for such sensors? I haven’t heard a whole lot of talk on them after going through a few sources. Would be interesting to see if there are such plans.
