Let me know how Russians took you for a ride, if we pay and cannot dictate terms then who is the fool.What i have inferred from past readings of this thread is Russians took us for a ride very badly.
We manufacture own armour steel for t 90 tanks, the sights are there well and good.
Back in 2001, what choice did we have beside T-90, Pakistani had acquired T-80. We cannot buy western platforms too costly, indigenous model Arjun well let's not talk about it again. Then Chinese tanks that was a no go.
Existing T-90 fleet with APS and some minor tweaks more than enough to tackle what Pakistan can throw towards India.The only issue is aps , Apu, more comprehensive era, new tank gun which can endure pressure above 650 megapascals , and new apfsds rounds with better penetration better thab fsapsds mk 2 by drdo.
Just need to get rid of T-72M1, these are going to be the real steel coffin.
