India was involved with two T-90S tanks in these games, but both of these tanks had a technical flaw that led to the Indian army being out of the competition. The T-90S tanks manufactured in Russia are considered to be strong and capable, but these tanks have encountered a mechanical problem. At the same time, the warships of Russia, China, Belarus and Kazakhstan reached the finals.
From 2001 to 8525 crores 657 T-90S ‘Bhishma’ tanks were imported. After this these tanks were begun making in India only. Sources say that the Main and Reserve T-90S tanks were sent from India to Russia for the International Army Games Tank Biathlon. These tanks had a fantastic display in the opening round.
An official said, ‘The first tank’s fan belt broke. After this, the reserve tank was sent in the race, but only after the run of two kilometers, the engine oil was leaked. This tank could not complete the race. Unfortunately, the Indian team has been disqualified. ‘
China has landed with Type-96B tanks in this competition. While running in this tank, there are many other features including machine guns. At the same time, Russia and Kazakhstan got into the competition with the T-72B3 tanks. There is a modern form of T-72 tanks near Belarus. These four countries will now clash in the final.
T-90S is an important part of the Indian Army’s war program. The Indian Army has 63 armed regiments and they have around 800 T-90s, 124 Arjuna, and 2400 old T-72 tanks. After the import of the first 657 T-90S tanks, 1000 tanks are being constructed in India with Russian kits.
