Arjun Main Battle Tank (Mk-1 & Mk-2)

Interested in " Dessert Ferrari " 😍

Seems like Mk1A is gaining traction.

Even Hellfire advocates Mk1A purchase in appropriate theatre and selling T72 as reserves to Russia.
Yeah,we all are dumb enough to believe this. Arab countries operating Israeli origin weapons.
 
We need to get Arjun a proper canon and work on localisation of its engine and transmission. Maybe then we can order another 2 regiments of improved Arjun.
 
In the New Era of warfare ,Tanks have to be protected with Infantry

Tanks can be killed by

Missile firing Drones ,

ATGMs , which can easily penetrate 500mm Armour

Helicopters which can take out a tank from 7 to 10 km

GUIDED Artillery shells And Rockets ,

The question is why should we waste money on more Tanks

One RPG 29 can destroy the Tracks of an ABRAMS

The softest part of the Tank is where the Canon is fitted with the Turret

One 84 mm RCL round will punch a hole in the Canon

If the Enemy is able to kill your infantrymen with accurate Artillery fire , Who will protect the Tank

The future solution to tanks & hptrs is unmanned & light in the ratio 7:10 or 8:10 in favor of unmanned : manned till such time as one works out more safer & quicker ways to cover vast distances rapidly by an expeditionary force .

In India Pakistan context , where Tank warfare will happen , we cannot even think of 10 KM inside Pakistani Punjab without suffering large scale casualties

Rajasthan may be but they have Ditch Cum Bunds and Canals to stop our Tanks in addition to Static Pill Boxes

Since Limited Money is the Over Arching Factor , it is better to invest in SSMs

Look at how Russians are loosing their Tanks , But their ISKANDERS and Kalibers are taking out all Ukranian HVTs

Why large scale casualties ? Establish air superiority & hit those tanks in their base . Next use air to hit them while they're in the fields. It's only after you've taken out substantial numbers you commence with your land campaign.


0.52 onwards , for your easy understanding.

We wont get the Luxury of Time
To first have an Air campaign

And Then launch the ground campaign

Just 5 days for All the Three services to Damage the Pakistan Military

That is what Jointness is all about
 
APS for our army vehcles is making progress. But transmitter seems to be so small & L shaped reciever antenna array, perhaps an electronics/telecom student/professional canexplain better.
Trophy has octagonal shape & some have circular radar too.
Some EO sensors will also be required to supplement the system.

In Ukraine, for example, the enormous vulnerability of tanks and armored vehicles to guided missiles, rocket launchers and drones has been highlighted, which, despite their low cost, manage to defeat much more advanced platforms, thus providing a great tactical advantage.

indra's new electronic scanning radar detects, identifies and tracks all types of projectiles, from traditional anti-tank missiles, grenade launchers or conventional munitions, to the new threats that are emerging at the moment. It determines with enormous precision the trajectory and estimated time of impact of cheap and widely used Javelin guided missiles; microdrones, which fly at low speed and altitude; and autonomous missiles and drones that fly over the area loaded with explosives awaiting their target(loitering munition). It also detects and tracks new experimental or hypersonic devices, such as the new arrow munitions that reach speeds above sound and have a particularly small radar section, equivalent to a two-euro coin.

For indra's managing director of Defence, Manuel Escalante, “this sophisticated radar demonstrates indra's ability to provide a quick and effective response to the needs posed by new conflict scenarios, applying digital technologies to the development of a new generation of defence systems. It is a pioneering system, which has already demonstrated exceptional performance and which is a critical element in protecting vehicles and armored vehicles from new threats.”

The capabilities of this innovative solution maintain its performance under extreme conditions, both hot and cold and even with high humidity, rain or snow. It resists all types of movements, vibrations and impacts and operates in electromagnetically saturated environments with high ‘noise’ (clutter), and unwanted radar signals. It also offers an exceptional degree of accuracy and speed in urban environments, where protection is even more necessary.

The system incorporates intelligence to discriminate false targets, evading possible enemy attempts to interfere with its operation with jamming techniques, used to saturate and circumvent conventional protection measures. Its full digitization allows signal processing from the moment of reception to the pulse emission, which facilitates very high-speed internal processing without latency throughout the entire process. The new solution is based on a 3D S-band, 100% solid-state, electronically scanned (AESA) radar, fully configurable by software, highly modular, and thus easy to integrate in small spaces such as turrets and wheeled armored vehicle arms stations. Its small size allows it to be installed on virtually any ground platform, from armored vehicles to convoy protection vehicles, and it has a very small radar signature that makes it difficult for the enemy to detect.

indra's active protection radar has already demonstrated perfect performance in different tests, also carried out in real scenarios and under extreme conditions, providing 360-degree protection to units moving on the ground.
