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.

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."
