Some size differences from the real deal, however this is still ominous.

How could people reverse engineer a tank wihout one at hand?
One theory- maybe it was being transported by road via Pakistan and the trailer was conveniently burnt and blown up by insurgents!a burnt mock up could be built and displayed to media and the German army could be denied access to the wreckage for months until the original was copied.

End of the debate already. It has been confirmed on Chinese fora as a delicate 1:1 scale model of the tank.

Edit: by the way, the water mark on the 3rd picture of post #1 reads the name of the model manufacturer.

How come they are succeeding in all the reverse engineering process. Why don't the DRDO try hard in reverse engineering everything ?

That is the million dollar question.

As million dollar as the Chinese Stealth!

But then it could be that the Chinese had first made both and the West were the one who stole the technology and produced similar things!

Who knows?!

Thanks to your bed partner Pakistan. NATO forces are in Afganistan. Its not difficult for pakis to steal these tanks as they steal tomahawk cruise missile and give it to you:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

They were dumb enough to xerox the instruction book for the Cisco software they copied, they may be dumb enough to paint the logo. When your boss says "Copy this EXACTLY" they did their job. :laugh:

The white cross is a German convoy marking.

It's just a mockup made from steel, plastic or wood.

Yes, yes. All the top brains from DRDO and the like in India don't seem capable of copying or reverse-engineering a rifle.:thumb:
