Only the hull, study their turret-armour thickness from top view.Al khalid and the type99 have almost same thickness on their front and arjun has commonality with t90.
No base design changes from Mark1, likely material changes. Protected parts had more than adequate armour in Mark1, weakspots are still the same in Mark1A...Do u have any idea of side, upper and front thickness of mk1a . Are those storage boxes act as spaced armour?
The BMP-2 is a tracked infantry armored fighting vehicle designed and manufactured by the Russian defence industry. This vehicle was based on the Russian-made BMP-1. The BMP-2 was manufactured under license in India under the name of "Sarath", and also in some eastern countries, as the Czech Republic under the name of BVP-2. The BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicle is designed to enhance mobility, firepower and protection of mounted infantrymen on the battlefield under NBC (Nuclear, Biological and Chemical) attack. The BMP-2 enters in service with the Russian armed forces in 1980, and the vehicle was seen for the first time in public during a military parade on the Red Square in Moscow, in November 1982. The BMP-2 was deployed by the Russian army during the war in Afghanistan. The vehicle is currently in use in African countries for UN missions.

- BMP-2K: command variant with two antennas mounted on the rear of the hull, one behind the turret and one on the right-hand side of the rear of the vehicle, one IFF antenna on the left-hand side of the rear of the vehicle and a support for a telescopic mast in the front of the IFF antenna. The firing port equipped with the periscope was removed from either side of the vehicle.
- BMP-2M: with an upgrade of armament and powerpack
- BMP-2 Kliver: with one 30mm automatic cannon and four anti-tank launchers mounted on the right side of the turret

The engine and transmission are to the right of the driver's compartment with the air inlet and outlet louvers on top of the hull. The BMP-2 IFV is motorized with a four-stroke, six-cylinder Model UTD-20 supercharged diesel engine developing 285/300 hp at 2,600 rpm. The torsion bar suspension of BMP-2 consists of each side with six roadwheels with the drive sprocket at the front, idler at the rear and three track return rollers. The upper part of the suspension is protected by armour plates. The BMP-1 is able to reach a maximum road speed of 65km/h with a maximum road range of 600 km. The BMP-1 can climb a side slope of 30% and a gradient of 60%, cross a trench of 2.5m and a vertical obstacle of 0.7m.
The BMP-2 is fully amphibious and propelled in the water by its tracks at a maximum speed of 7 km/h. An infra-red searchlight is mounted coaxial to the right of the 30-mm cannon and the commander also has a roof-mounted infra-red searchlight model OU-3GA2. Standard equipment on the BMP-2 includes a full range of night vision equipment for commander, gunner and driver, a fire extinguishing system, a GPK-59 gyrocompass system, a PAZ overpressure NBC system, an engine preheater and a turret extractor fan.

God ! More Ruskie biscuits. Are we their lapdogs or what ? Dalals having a field day. Do we really need Armata ? Can't we improve Arjun.INDIA CONSIDERS READINESS TO BUY UP TO 500 T-14 ARMATA TANKS BY THE END OF THE YEAR
India is ready to sign a contract with Russia for the supply of T-14 "Armata" tanks
Due to the fact that the newest Russian T-14 Armata tank has received an export certificate, India is ready to conclude a contract with Russia for the supply of these heavy combat vehicles to the country's armament. Apparently, we are talking about a multi-billion dollar deal, since earlier information appeared about the intentions of the Indian Armed Forces to receive 500 tanks of this type.
Today, the military from India completely and completely trust Russian armoured vehicles, and against the background of an impending armed conflict with China, the acquisition of Russian heavy tanks capable of withstanding a direct hit from a large calibre and a UAV strike is very relevant for New Delhi.
Information about the purchase of 500 T-14 Armata tanks by the Indian military appeared in the Indian press in the middle of last year, however, due to the fact that the export version of this armoured vehicle did not exist, the deal was supposed to be completed in 2021.
It should be noted that today India is one of the largest buyers of modern Russian weapons, in particular, we are talking about the S-400 Triumph air defence system as well as the likely purchase of a large number of fifth-generation Su-57 fighters, as previously reported by the media.
In addition to India, it is also planned to sell Russian T-14 Armata tanks to countries such as Algeria, Iran, Belarus, etc., and a clear interest in combat vehicles is actively traced throughout the world, since today it is not only a promising tank, but and a perfectly protected combat vehicle capable of repelling the attack of superior enemy forces in defence.

We can’t improve Arjun as we don’t have to, the only downfall of it is that it has a very heavy weight of around 58 Tonnes in Mk1 and 68 Tonnes in MK1A while the Army required a 50 Ton MBT, and it is because Army changed its specifications quickly, obviously for more imports.God ! More Ruskie biscuits. Are we their lapdogs or what ? Dalals having a field day. Do we really need Armata ? Can't we improve Arjun.
Reducing the weight is the improvement then. I think that is what FMBT is for isn't it ? Why import Armata ? First army should equip its SF better, we have enough of tanks.We can’t improve Arjun as we don’t have to, the only downfall of it is that it has a very heavy weight of around 58 Tonnes in Mk1 and 68 Tonnes in MK1A while the Army required a 50 Ton MBT, and it is because Army changed its specifications quickly, obviously for more imports.
First of all Indian Army should get rid of those shitty Camos on its vehicles, they make them look so ugly like if they are a rogue militia.Reducing the weight is the improvement then.
