Arjun II ??

Hmmm, this proves that Arjun was a failure and Indian army isnt interested in this tank.

Anyways, a failure is actually, one step ahead towards success.

Yes the IA has admitted that although the Arjun-I was very good in the plains, it failed in the desert conditions. Vis-a-Vis Pakistan the main tank battles would always occur in the great Thar desert.

The Arjun-II is kick ass though, if you want I ccan post some more details about it.

Re: India's MBT: Arjun and its standing among Tanks

There is no question about it. Arjun is the 'best' Tank in the world. After all the world's 'greatest' country has produced it which also produces the world's 'best' fighter plane, the LCA. Soon all the armaments factories in West are going to be out of business as they simply cannot compete with world's 'best', 'greatest' weopons produced by the world's 'greatest' country on earth.

LCA is far from being put in to serial production as of this moment. Defense industries in the West will close down? Prove your point in order to make sense!

cut the 'crap'.

To the Admins/Mods:
If this comment is worth deleting then so is the comment by Sri Lankan. Try not being loyal to your double standards.

Admin: Srilankan is learning. Everyone is given a chance to correct themselves. There is a point where we become less gracious - and that goes for everyone.
