what do you mean stripped down. Night vision, armaments etc are always optional.

Its the development of engine, transmission and armour that i am talking about.

T 90 is Built by Russians especially for Markets like India. It is state of the art highly sophisticated Battle tank. No comparison to Arjun (Remake of T-72) or Al-Khalid (Exended upgrade to chinese T-72). Its Suspension, Armour, Defence and Speed is unmatchable.

The Arjun is NOT a remake of T-72. In fact it has nothing to do with the T-72 which is of Russian origin. The Arjun is a completely new ground up design being developed by DRDO, its in a heavier weight category, is much wider and higher etc stc.

+ 1 to that. Although the Arjun design is heavily inspired by the Leopard because of the Germans involved in the early design process, the Arjun is by and large in-house in basic design and has nothing what-so-ever to do with the T-72.

And lets not totally write off the Arun yet. Thanks to the pestering of the Army, the DRDO has today got the Arjun to a respectable status. The field trials between the T-90 and the Arjun should be interesting.

Yes. You are right. Do post the results if you get to know. Trust me no one's writing off the Arjun, rather no one will be allowed to. With the Ramarao committee report being implemented it's now perform or perish for DRDO. Maybe Arjun will turn out to be the Dark horse.

Arjun cost was inclusive of Night vission and other goodies, while T-90 wasnt.

In simple layman languges while comparing the price, Arjuns was all inclusive while T-90 wsnt, it wasnt even reproted to the parliament.

They imported T-90 without any of these, saying its cheaper and then gave follow up contracts to Ruskies, worth Billlions of dollars under the pretext of modernisation.

Here the tyre size is for Stallion LRV - 14x20 - 22 ply rating tyres.
In Stallion it is 16x20 - 22 ply rating tyres.
Pictured are MRF Sand Grips.
