UVZ offers upgrades to Indian T-72. India still thinks

Russia has sent India proposals for the modernization of the Indian Army tanks T-72, said the deputy head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSVTS) of Russia Vladimir Drozhzhov.

UVZ offers upgrades to Indian T-72. India still thinks

After the tests of the upgraded T-72 tanks were completed, the Russian side submitted a proposal for modernization. After its consideration we expect a tender announcement.
- declared Drozzhov.

Modernization of thousands of T-72 tanks for India can take from two to five years.

Our combined capacity allows for upgrades quickly enough. You can do a time lag of a couple of years. But everything will depend on the funding of this program. In general, this (upgrading thousands of T-72 tanks) can take from two to five years
- declared on UVZ

The Indian side is invited to upgrade part of the T-72 tank system, including protection systems, electronic support, sighting system, as well as the installation of a new engine. At the same time, the scope of possible improvements can be expanded.

This is not the first proposal for the modernization of Indian tanks. In 2014, Russia offered India a project to upgrade T-72 with the installation of additional security features, including KAZ Arena-E, but the conversation did not go further.

    But what about the sanctions? As far as I remember, UVZ is under sanctions. So there are loopholes ?!

      as I understand it, it all depends on India, if they do not give a damn about them, then there are no obstacles, but I doubt it, lately the Indians are taking more into account the opinion you know who ...

    They are now more perplexed by their fleet, while it is quiet on the border with Pakistan, with China too. wink

    India now has large-scale renewal programs in all branches of the armed forces, primarily the aviation and navy. billionth tenders have been announced .. So the question of money is trite here. If there are extra to upgrade 72k - well, if not, then they prefer to wait another.

    Paraphrasing N. Mordyukova .....: "Well, the Indians! First give them that! And then one and the other!"
    Or: eat the "fish" .... and sit on the tree bare booty. Without scratching .....

    Counterbalance system in action. India is our counterbalance to the PRC, therefore ours make such concessions. In a word: "Hindi-rus phai, phai"

    The same "Arena" for the T-90A would not be superfluous ...
