What do we have here? A WAG-9HC twin.

On paper this configuration should put out a starting tractive effort of 1020 KN compared to WAG-12B's 705 KN. A dual WAG-9H will also be heavier than the WAG-12B. WAG-12B has been having problems with traction issues. IR was testing WAG-11, wonder what happened to that.

This claimed to be a chinese high speed train. Look at the stability
@randomradio without we develop our domestic civilian industry, you will never reach the top in military engineering.
@Rajput Lion This is the level of Chinese technology leap, you chan back calculate how potent will be its military gears.
No doubt that the Chinese are ahead in technology at the moment. But our military tech is not that behind. In fact, there are area like BMD in which we may have the lead.

Our Space tech is also not that behind.

Tbh, in terms of railways we need expressways more than much touted HSR. HSR is nice for showing off to tourists and bragging but the Chinese HSR runs at a loss. Only France, Japan and a few other European countries are using HSR properly. What's common between these countries? High per capita income. For India 200kph trains will be just fine.

Here is the Meerut Metro by Alstom. Another area in which China beats us hands down but we are catching up.
