India introduced its newest tank MBT Arjun Mark-II

84
India will demonstrate during its parade in honor of January 26 Republic Day, its newest main battle tank MBT Arjun Mark-II.


January 26 India celebrates the Republic Day with a solemn parade in the center of the capital New Delhi. Thousands of spectators will gather to witness a colorful spectacle. In front of them will be units of the army, air force and naval forces.

India introduced its newest tank MBT Arjun Mark-II


Tank Arjun Mark II, has the ability to fire an improved missile with an increased range, a panoramic sight with night vision, dynamic protection and advanced anti-aircraft guns for hitting helicopters.

Other functional changes include an improved auxiliary power unit, an improved main gun, an on-site navigation system, a commander's panoramic sight with eye-safe laser range finder, a digital on-board computer, a new on-board gear, tracks and driving wheels, as well as a smoke grenade launch system. to bring down the laser guidance of the enemy.

The Arjun Mark-II is a significantly improved and more efficient tank than the Arjun Mark-I, but at the same time it is too heavy, and thus limits the regions where it can be deployed by the Army. And this makes it unsuitable following the operational requirements of the Indian Army to the MBT. According to P.Sivakumar, director of the CVRDE, "Arjun's weight prevents him from being deployed in all the regions required by the Army."

    Judging by the comments, the main criterion for the technical level of any technique is the compliance of its color with the color of the varnish on the owner's nails. Before joking "sparklingly", you need to design, manufacture and assemble at least a two-wheeled scooter yourself.
    Having lost school and cadres, Malyshev’s factory also thought we were cool and stuck above Skew Yashka, now we would quickly heat up a new armored personnel carrier and cut down cabbage inordinately. But no, bummer (s) happened.
    The fact that the Indians bungled, of course, is not a masterpiece, but the fact that their engineers are trying to be on a par with the elect, and the state is contributing to this in every way, is worthy of respect.

        Yes, they do it crookedly, who argues. Designers of iron do not feel yet, the hand of the factory workers did not become, clumsy, rude, straightforward. Money was destroyed in order - that’s also true. So after all, they, unlike the Chinese, have a different approach. Those without a twinge of conscience tear off under the clean, the best in their opinion decisions and make vinaigrette of them. Hindus, of course, also spy, this is normal engineering practice, but at the same time they are trying to give birth to something of their own, to train designers. And it is always longer and more expensive. In tank building, they are now, as we are in the 20s.

    You might think the USSR with the T-34 began. But 15 years have passed since the MS-1, and the Germans whined. But they came to learn, they got money, TG (Grote tank) did.

    If it cannot be used on the whole Indian theater, then why the hell did they even create it? Do they now have their own different tanks designed for each region of India or what? laughing

    For some reason, the Germans and Americans have no problems using their 70 tons of tanks on any theater, but the Indians have it! The question arises, why are such tanks needed if they are not initially suitable !?

    Hindus can be good performers, but the mentality is completely lacking creativity. For example, give the Chinese 50% of the design documentation for something, they will find where and how to buy (steal) another 25%, and another 25 will speculate at the very least. It will be worse than the original, of course, but it will work, further in number ... Give the Indians 100% of the Russian documentation, add 50-100% of the German documentation and be puzzled to do something at least as good as possible .... and in 20-30 years it will be released the naughty Arjun! Themselves, I think they know about it ... unhappy people, as in that song ... lol

    What time! If not analog, but not on punch cards ... This is a really new word in science and technology (INDIAN) !!! I must say that the source has a rather mediocre translation.

    Well, it's not destiny for them, Hindus, they can learn to be good performers, and they can think, but they absolutely lack such a quality of thinking as creativity! This is their trouble. Here, for example, for comparison, give the Chinese 50% of the project documentation for something, another 25% will buy (write) critically important ones, and the extreme 3% will speculate themselves (because they have creativity in their heads)! It will, of course, be much worse than the original, but it will work, then they will take it in quantity. Now Indians, give them 25% Russian documentation, a license, 100-50-75% German (it doesn't matter anymore), and challenge them to do something no less sensible, or even better ... and in 100-20 years "creative" low-travel Arjun will be released! They themselves understand everything and suffer, like those unfortunate people ... from a song! But Arjun is still there ...

    Even the proverb, "with the world on a thread - a naked shirt!" Will not work here.

    "Advanced anti-aircraft guns to destroy helicopters" - when reading this phrase, something huge like the German P-1000 "Rat" appears, but not Arjun.

    Well DONE.

    A new modification of the Arjun tank, independently created by India, the Arjun Mk.II, was first demonstrated at a military parade in New Delhi. The improved machine received new armor and more advanced surveillance and communication systems (photo: drdo.gov.in)

    The fighting elephant is spilled, of course it’s interesting to see what the tank is capable of, or the Indians of the master praise their swamp, but how to fight, it turns out that there are flaws.
