An officer in India called the "mechanical problems" of the T-90 tank the reason for the failure of the Indian team in the tank biathlon

The Indian press decided to analyze tank component of the country's army. The publication Financial Express, which, it would seem, has nothing to do with military topics, gives a kind of example of comparing the Arjun and T-90 tanks. The author of the material is the columnist Huma Siddiqvi.


Referring to a senior Indian Armed Forces officer, Siddiqvi writes that the T-90 "has its own problems."
From an article that points to the "reason" for the failure of the Indian military at the tank biathlon in Russia:

During the tank biathlon held in Russia in August 2017, when tankers from 19 countries competed in simulated battle conditions to determine which of the crews was better, the Indian army was defeated due to the fact that the main and reserve T-90 tanks there are mechanical problems.

A strange statement, as well as a strange attempt to determine the main culprit of the unsatisfactory result at those competitions was not the crew and technical personnel from the Indian delegation, but the tank. After all, if a tank was selected for participation in biathlon, then this, by definition, should mean that the combat vehicle was completely ready for the loads. Why is it now claimed to be the "mechanical problems" of the tank as the main reason for the failure of the Indian team?

The FI material additionally notes that the T-90 tanks "suffer from night blindness, since their night vision system ceases to work in high temperatures in desert areas."

From the article:

The tank's electronic systems also constantly failed in the heat, in the desert. For comparison, our Arjun tank has much more advanced night combat capabilities, did not encounter any problems at high temperatures and does not even require air conditioning.

The article presents the opinion of a military expert, retired Indian army officer B. Bhatia. The expert said that the Arjun tanks have a high potential, and added that India needs to create tank units capable of effectively operating in mountainous areas. Bhatia explains this need by China's activity in the border territories.

        that the main and reserve T-90 tanks had mechanical problems.
        Glass in the KP, sugar in the tanks? repeat Who said what - divide by 10. Who did it and when? Surely, they were replacing our oil with our own, "banana".

    A strange statement, as well as a strange attempt to determine the main culprit of the unsatisfactory result at those competitions was not the crew and technical personnel from the Indian delegation, but the tank.
    This is from the same theme as the defeat of the Ukrainians in tank competitions, on their tank "Oplot". Those also had "mechanical problems" with the MZ, which has been installed and operated on tanks for more than half a century, and all its pros and cons have been studied from "A" to "Z", and they apparently decided to "Ukrainian" or "English" their alphabet "rewrite" ... When "hands are crooked" ...
    And at the expense of "blindness", so NOTHING prevents the Indians from modernizing these sighting devices for similar ones installed on the "Arjuna"
    They assemble T-90s at their factories and install FRENCH thermal imagers on them, ask the Germans, they will offer theirs.

    In in. Instead of bragging about the uselessness of an air conditioner in a cool Indian tank (apparently it is so well blown by the wind), it would be better to bring it to the biathlon and surprise all the inept.

    The positive remark of the user should be discussed with attention. How did the wonderful sniper ORSIS T5000 do? Already 3 versions, and each took into account the user's comment !!!
    It turned out she is getting closer to perfection! The basic law of good manufacturing for users. On the basis of the remark, both the manufacturer and the designer study and the quality level rises !!! A good example of Indian remarks on SD 30, DRY started to do better and taught to do better.
