If it has night vision, then it should be names as T-89.

OMG....what are they smoking at DRDO? They are going to make the IA guys look like monkeys in this rubbish....make more Arjuns....seriously even the Pak upgrades of t59 look far better than this.....

The Americans saw similar T72s in Desert Storm and used to call them "The super Dolly Parton Tank". I didnt know why - now I think I know why :))

Just ask DRDO how much they spent on the project and get an CAG audit on it please,it will be surprise to many to know know how DRDO spends millions of the taxpayers money so easily.

1) Hasn't the Ajeya been around for a year?

2) She is a beautiful tank and a 95% T-90. Not the best on Earth, but everything needed: speed, agility, a gun, armor and systems.

3) Most important for tank warfare is numbers. How many are there now and when will all T-72s be upgraded? If they are all upgraded, them plus the T-90 force can handle the armies of any country within 2,000 kilometers.

LOL! Shivji, my sympathies are with you for having to deal with readers (especially the ones who comment a lot) who have no clue what a reactive armor is (and looks like); and make ignorant comments on it. I had a good laugh :)
