FRCV is nothing but backdoor entery for armata.As far as the Armata concept is concerned, it is nothing new. Despite what Russians advertise it on their brochure, it is merely an old wine in a new bottle.
US already tried this concept of unmanned turret in the 90s, with a modified M1 hull and a robotic turret, with crew seated in a armour capsule. But the US army rejected this concept in favour of conventional 3 man turret with the M1A1, M1A2 etc. The British also had a similar implemented project on their Challenger 1 hull with a robotic Falcon turret (for the Jordanian Army). But the British army rejected it in favour of Challenger 2.

The Falcon turret is a modular turret which can be retrofitted on any 3rd generation tank.
As far as Indian Army is concerned, the concept of FRCV came up when the Army decided to go public about its requirement in 2017. After than they haven't made any statement to the media. The concept of FRCV is absurd and vague, as army has not issued any GSQR, but wants global designers to build the tank in India based on their own proposal, and transfer the IPR to Army, and it will be mass produced in India.
Then the Russians have started pitching in the monkey models of their Armata (which their own army is yet to induct in large numbers). The South Koreans are pitching in their K2 MBT. However absence of any concrete requirement stated by army, the project is bound to fail.
Chota Ambani is toast dude.. He isn't getting anything..FRCV is nothing but backdoor entery for armata.
It will join Indian army just like T 90 and before it T 72 did . It may happen today, tomorrow or a decade down the line but it will happen. K 2 is inferior to armata on every parameter , every western tank currently in service is. it has no chance but when corruption is involved anything is possible , but modi ji has drop offset clause in govt to govt deal in new weapons buying policy due to chotta ambani .
and i have full faith in military leadership that they will make sound decision on merits and not on hera kiri which happened during bhio fiasco, where superior russian system was overlooked intentionally to favour bhio. Let's say to Curry favour to certain desi company and its shareholders ( Baki aap samajdar ho ).
Because multilayer ERA isn't efficient or practical, adding huge weight & IA showed no interest.So Ukraine proposed Duplet ERA upgrade for indian T 90 , Arjun 2 and FMBT. I wonder why didn't we go for it.
No. Neither that nor the unproven experiment T-14 has any chance of seeing India next decade... No matter how much you advertise here.So russians will be installing malachit and Arena on there T 90. This may open a way for us to get Relikt Proryv 3 type upgrade for our T 90 post 2025 ?
They thought... & later forgot.Indian army should seriously think about active protection system.....
Yes i thought weight was probably the issue with duplet as for T 14 we will see Latest govt move to end offset liability for Govt to govt deal for future is going to benefit none other than russians the most.Because multilayer ERA isn't efficient or practical, adding huge weight & IA showed no interest.

Indian R&D as well as GSQR seems to be leaning on multiuse NERA for future.
LEDS 150 is superior to arena series APS the same way bhio was superior to russian Anti aircraft systems, we all know what happened.They thought... & later forgot.
LEDS-150 beat Arena & Trophy to get selected, but hasn't been installed in more than 10 years. I think they're just bolstering numbers now. Maybe an MLU will follow.

Ok. Now can you please stop advertising?.. This is a thread for T-72/90 & their upgrades or derivatives.LEDS 150 is superior to arena series APS the same way bhio was superior to russian Anti aircraft systems, we all know what happened.
