Army to induct 460 Russian-origin t ks to add muscle on Pak front



NEW DELHI: The Indian Army will induct an additional 464 Russian-origin upgraded T-90 'Bhishma' main-battle t ks at a cost of Rs 13,448 crore in the 2022-2026 time frame to bolster its "shock and awe" capabilities on the western front, even as Pakistan is also discussing a deal with Russia for acquiring about 360 such t ks.

新德里:印度陆军将斥资1344.8亿卢比,在2022 - 2026年期间从俄罗斯引进464辆升级版T- 90“Bhishma”主战,以增强在西线的威慑力,尽管巴基斯坦也正与俄罗斯商谈购买约360辆此类。

Defence ministry sources on Monday said the "indent" to produce the 464 T-90 t ks would soon be placed on the Avadi Heavy Vehicle Factory (HVF) under the Ordnance Factory Board after the cabinet committee on security cleared the licence acquisition from Russia over a month ago.

印度国防部消息人士星期一表示,在内阁安全委员会一个多月前从俄罗斯获得许可后,生产464辆T-90的“合同”将交付给军械工厂委员会下属的阿瓦迪重型汽车工厂 (HVF)。

The Army already has around 1,070 T-90 t ks as well as 124 'Arjun' and 2,400 older T-72 t ks in its 67 armoured re gients. After the first 657 T-90 t ks were imported for Rs 8,525 crore from Russia from 2001 onwards, another 1,000 are being progressively licenced and produced by HVF with Russian kits. "There has been some delay in the indent for the remaining 464 t ks, which will also have night-fighting capabilities. Once it is done, the first 64 t ks should be delivered in 30-41 months," said a source.


"Pakistan has plans to upgrade its esting mechanised forces, which includes over 50 armoured re gients of Ukrainian T-80UD and -origin t ks. It wants to acquire new Russian T-90 t ks and indigenously produce others with 's help," said a source.

Pakistan is a bankrupt country, from where they are getting crores of rupees to buy such equipment ? USA, IMF and World Bank should be very careful when they consider resque plan for Pakistan.

巴基斯坦是一个破产国家,哪有钱买这种? 真考虑救助巴基斯坦,美国、国际货币基金组织和世界银行应该慎之又慎。

Still, India is a bigger economy and can survive. But the pain and disaster is for Pakistan. Pakistan''s Kashmir policy has turned them bankrupt. Inside Pakistan life is hell.

Inside Pakistan, the average Pakistanis are way much better than dirt poor India where millions of farmers commit suicide every year out of sheer poverty, families failing to perform the funeral throw the dead bodies in to Ganga making it holier everyday, or every day norm rape nade it the rape capital of the world!
