But assisted by a Japanese lander which plays the entire game for soft landing.With a UAE rover.
Anyway even the lander is built by ispace, a Japanese private company which was a competitor in GLXP along with India's team indus. I doubt whether a private company execute what a far more advanced JAXA could not.
We anyway should now be least bothered about "being forth" in soft moon landing and focus on larger space program for manned missions and outrespace for long term goals.
I anyway don't have much hopes from Chandryaan-3 landing either. If Japanese robo tech didn't succeed, it's tough for Indian tech too. Landing on moon is not easy.
