Indian Defense Ministry denied signing of contract for Russian MBT T-90MS

Ministry of Defense of India did not sign a contract to acquire Russian tanks T-90MS. A contract for 6 tanks issued on November 2019, 464 to the state Indian defense industry association Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) provides for the continuation of the licensed assembly of the T-90C / SK Bhishma OBT at the facilities of the Indian heavy vehicles factory (HVF) in Avadi. It is reported by "Jane's Defense Weekly".


India will continue the licensed assembly of Russian T-90С / SK Bhishma tanks under the 2006 license agreement for the production of 1000 MBT T-90С / СК. The first 10 tanks under this agreement were only handed over to the Indian army in the 2009 year, and so far the Indian tank factory HVF has issued no more than half of the licensed copies of the T-90С. According to the publication, by the 2020 year, the completion of the first part of the assembly of the 536 MBT T-90С is expected, the contract for the second part of the tanks, i.e. the remaining 464 vehicles, the Indian Ministry of Defense and issued to Indian tank builders. It is assumed that the production of the second part of the licensed tanks will take at least 4 years.

At the same time, the Indian military department confirmed that they intend to purchase in Russia 464 machine kit OBT T-90MS for assembly at Indian enterprises, but this agreement has not yet been signed. According to reports, pre-contract negotiations of the parties continue.

Previously, the Indian military expects to receive an 464 T-90MS tank from 2022 to 2026 years to equip ten tank regiments of the Indian army, with the first 64 tanks to be delivered on time from 30 to 41 months from the date of signing the contract.

Thus, the information that the Indian Ministry of Defense ordered the assembly of 464 modernized T-90MS tanks from the vehicle sets supplied from Russia was not confirmed.

    It’s a pity, of course, that they didn’t hack off with Pakistan.

          what does moralism have to do with it? then you sweat from the consequences ofiguev. it’s generally nuclear countries and they won’t fight on bows and arrows. And the consequences were already calculated like that. there a little ball will not seem enough.

            You won’t believe it, but about the whole ball this is an exaggeration. Even if all the consequences of blowing up are not fatal, not only for the ball, but even for people.

              you forget things like hunger, for example, which in the event of such a war will affect at least a billion people in the world. refugees. all kinds of natural disasters. lost markets. raising the price of everything and everything. there you can go on and on. any action always gives rise to opposition. China, too, will fit into this weld, and someone will answer it in defiance of it. will have to take sides, which means that direct opponents will have to face. this chaos will then change a lot.

              Therefore, about the regional committee by.
              India needs the United States in that area in good health. So that the time comes to pit them with China.
              And packs, of course, under China, because China also planted straws in advance.

                Yes, spitting mattresses on India from a high bell tower. They need a source of instability in the region. And in the choice of methods and means they are, as you know, not very picky. Just to pit each other.

                  You know what is happening with the construction of ships in China.
                  What do you think for whose soul?
                  And to expect that in the future they will throw India to China, do you think this contradicts the fact that they do not care about India? Where is the contradiction, show.

                    I did not speak about contradictions. I said that mattresses do not care about India, and Pakistan, too. They have their own goals in this region. And in choosing methods to achieve their goals, mattresses are extremely illegible: all methods are good. Moreover, they think of themselves as hegemons and gendarmes of the whole world.

                  "Forgotten economy" - this is in Ukraine now. But when they signed a contract with Pakistan, i.e. in 1996, there were completely different times. The legacy of the USSR was simply gigantic.

          Due to lack of funds, Pakistan purchased T-55 in Europe. Better their Chinese sponsor military assistance. This is in our favor. In general, the article should have been called the Ministry of Defense of India, which confirmed its intention to purchase 464 T-90MS tanks from Russia, in addition to the 1000 T-90S purchased. This is very good news for us.

    IMHO, you can suspect the following.
    Firstly, the Indians want to bend the Russian Federation so that instead of the T-1C car kits they would now be supplied with the T-90MS car kits.
    Secondly, more clearly, the Indian government signed a contract for the Nth sum with its manufacturer-assembler, and then, for the amount of "N" minus "i", it must agree with the Russians.
