I missed this part of the article the first time around. Well, too bad.

hey,guys,interesting news.malaysian prince captain tunku ismail ibrahim,the grandson of the sultan of johar will be leading the jaipur based 61st cavalary regiment during the indian republic day parade on january26 2007.

here check out this link and article:

http://www.dailyexcelsior.com/web1/0...national.htm#4

For the first time in the history of Republic Day celebrations, a foreigner will lead a unit of the Army contingent at the annual parade on January 26.
Captain Tunku Ismail Ibrahim, grandson of the Sultan of Johar, a state in Malaysia, will lead the mounted column of the Jaipur-based 61st cavalry which will form part of the Army contingent at the 105-minute-long parade.
The young Malaysian prince, who was commissioned in the Army two years ago after passing out from the prestigious Indian Military Academy (IMA) in Dehradun, is thrilled at the opportunity.
"It is a family tradition to get trained in the forces. My grandfather was trained in the Malaysian Army. My father, the crown prince of Johar, received training in the US," said Tunku, the first member of his family to join the Indian Army.
"It is a great honour to be part of such a great Army and to take part in the national parade. My father will come to watch the parade," the Captain said.

The MA purchased 162 Sibmas and a further 24 arm recovery vehicles in 1984.
I thought the PT-91M were meant to be the replacement. That's where rumours of 150-160 MBT numbers came from.

In terms of roles it might make sense. An MBT would be a good replacement with the army moving from COIN to conventional warfare. Then there are 4 KAD regiments for the 4 divisions in the fire support role. Hence the number. Not sure if the PT-91M would make up the entire MBT fleet though.

PT-91 is not to replace Sibmas, have not heard of this one before. The MBT is for forming a new armoured brigade and will go first to 11 KAD, the only tank regiment in the army right now. Sibmas replacement is still being evaluated and would continue to be a wheeled vehicle for arming the calvary regiment.

No, we are not saying that the PT-91M is meant as a replacement for the Sibmas in its screening and convoy escort roles. You are right these are better performed by a wheeled vehicle. What happened to the 8x8 contest awhile back anyway? Anyone?

However, only an MBT can performed the kind of mobile strongpoint roles that weasel talked about. And there are 4 divisions in the army. All of which might need to carry out this kinds of engagement.

Remember, even if a tender has not been called it does not mean that a requirement does not exist. 4 Bde Mekanis is a testbed (and I would lump 1 Bde Amor together with it). There is no way that it will be the only unit of its type in the army.

I hope we do get more PT-91Ms. I hope DMD and Konstrukta get together and fashion the T21 turret around the 2A46MS. It would be nice upgrade to our tanks.
