Because India-China frontier doesn't allow large tank battles, and China's MBT numbers are designed for other smaller countries.How come China has less number of tanks than India?
they have 3500 tanks and we have 4200 tanks according to Global Firepower 2020
On the other hand, India's MBT stockpile is largely built on the possibility of tank-battles against Pakistan.
India's headache is the Rocket Force. If/when this is over India will have its own dedicate branches of the military that deal with:
- Rockets (MBR, tactical missiles, and strategic missiles)
- Unmanned Aerial Warfare (specializing in pro-/anti-swarming, combat and recon UAVs, etc.
- Cyber warfare
- Information warfare
- Space warfare
