India decided to create a new tank platform

54
Indian Defense Ministry intends to replace all available in the army (2 thousand 414 units) Tanks T-72, considering them obsolete, reports Look with reference to the Livefist Defense resource.




And this is not about acquiring other, more modern tanks, but about developing a new tank platform of our own production. Soon to be announced the start of the competition.

Total military department intends to purchase about 2-x thousand tanks on the new chassis. The first vehicles must be handed over to the army in 2025-2027.

On the basis of the platform is planned to create a family of combat vehicles. The project was named FRCV. It is described as “medium weight platform” suitable for use in “semi-desert and desert terrain”.

In March, the media reported that Russia and India began negotiations on a multi-million dollar deal to modernize T-90 tanks. India is armed with more than 950 such machines. India is traditionally the largest buyer of Russian weaponsin particular, armored vehicles.

    and they succeeded in the “old” tank platform, I understand correctly, since they decided to stir up a new one?

      They want to make a copy with the T-14? So they are not Chinese, they don’t know how to work.

        The Chinese are also not able to "lick" the T-14, as it is not in the troops yet. As for the statement of the Indians ... there is no school, there are no traditions, there are no specialists either, well, they have nothing to tank, based on the results of the last biathlon. What then to say?

Here, Trump REFUSED to meet with Putin, defiantly leaving the meeting room earlier than everyone, although it was their side that just wanted this meeting. And then the news comes that Poroshenko changes the commander in the anti-terrorist operation zone, appointing Lieutenant General Mikhail Zabrodsky, born in 1973

      What is not a year is the same song. But what about their "old" platform of the Arjun tank ..? Most likely this is again another stuffing in order to modernize these tanks but on more favorable terms. It is clear that over 2 thousand units of cars no one will be allowed to scrap. And you can make a good upgrade with refinement to the level of T-90.

      No, it’s not right, the old is outdated, a new one is needed. fellow laughing Only such grandiose plans to create a new platform and put into service
      The first cars should be transferred to the army in 2025-2027.

    They already tried to make their tank, it was an epic unfinished building. All the same, the division of labor takes place in the family of the peoples of the world. Cars are Germans and Japanese, wine is French, Indians are funny films, and tanks are Russian. Well, the Indians don’t get a tank, so what can I do ...

    Why not, let them try to create.
    The matter is not complicated, for this, it’s necessary nonsense, 70 years of experience, victories and mistakes in building tanks, metallurgy of the appropriate level, brains, engines and, without fail, a bit of luck.
    And everything will turn out!
    The main thing here is to start with a trifle - to make your own T-72 yourself, for starters, with the same characteristics.

    I can even guess which platform the Indians mean. The focus with the 5th generation fighter reminds me, at first they were all happy, but dissatisfied voices went about the problems of the projects. I think the level of technology transfer has passed and now they don’t need our specialists anymore?

    The Indians do not currently have Captain Nemo, which means that we will not see the new tank soon either. All they can do is improve the old, for example, hang up the armor of elephants.

    These Indians did their tank Arjun AJ for 20 years and Nichrome couldn’t even get close to the T72 in terms of parameters. And here is the "new platform", the "family of combat vehicles." I think these Indians will need two hundred years to do such things judging by their previous "successes." But as they say "the flag in your hands and a feather in the ass - FLY."

    Indians are troubled, they have nothing to do. As I laughed at them in a tank biathlon, they screwed up heavily with their modification of the T-90. What the hell is a new tank for them? To know how to sing and dance?
