India will purchase additional equipment for T-90S tanks

13

The Indian Ministry of Defense signed a contract for the purchase of additional equipment for tanks T-90. The contract was signed with Bharat Earth Movers Limited, its total cost is about $ 75 million. What additional equipment for main battle tanks are we talking about in this case?


The Indian military department is going to purchase more than 1,5 thousand (1512) mine trawls from Bharat Earth Movers Limited. They will be equipped with T-90S tanks in service with the Indian army. The deal was approved by Indian Defense Minister Rajnat Singh.

This decision, according to the Indian press, was made in connection with the complication of the situation on the border with China. Some time ago, several dozen T-90S tanks of the Indian Armed Forces were deployed in Ladakh - near the area where a clash between Indian and Chinese military personnel took place.

The Indian army intends to use T-90S tanks with mine trawls along the border line - to identify the presence of minefields and create corridors in them through which the main forces could pass.

According to the latest data, the delivery of all 1512 mine trawls to Indian troops is scheduled to be completed by 2027.

Indian Defense Ministry Press Service:

These mine trawls will be installed on the T-90 tanks of the Indian Panzer Corps, which will facilitate the individual mobility of tanks when leading troops through minefields along the created security corridors.

    It's strange. They build tanks, build rockets, build cars, but can't a trawl ?!
    Or is it cheaper for us?

        Even during the Second World War, Starinov developed mines that are triggered by 2-10-50th clicks, on which you install. Trawls are not a panacea at all

          Trawled not just a skating rink. He can plow mines in front of the tracks of the tank with knives, after which the extracted mines are thrown over the outer border of the passage with a blade.

        It is not a leader's business - to read, if you order - they will read it.

      And who said that they buy from the Russian Federation? This is an Indian company, state-owned.

    There is no limit to perfection!
    If you have money ...
    And to each T-90 you can fasten the Israeli Trophy with blue duct tape.

    How far has military science gone. To defend your territory? Not.
    along the border line - to identify the presence of minefields and create corridors through which the main force could pass.
    On the other side of the border? recourse Recover lost territories? Hit the foe, this is already serious. Indians traditionally, both hunting and feeding dogs. repeat
