India considers readiness to buy up to 500 T-14 Armata tanks by the end of the year

India is ready to sign a contract with Russia for the supply of T-14 "Armata" tanks.

Due to the fact that the newest Russian T-14 Armata tank has received an export certificate, India is ready to conclude a contract with Russia for the supply of these heavy combat vehicles to the country's armament. Apparently, we are talking about a multi-billion dollar deal, since earlier information appeared about the intentions of the Indian Armed Forces to receive 500 tanks of this type.

Today, the military from India completely and completely trust Russian armored vehicles, and against the background of an impending armed conflict with China, the acquisition of Russian heavy tanks capable of withstanding a direct hit from a large caliber and a UAV strike is very relevant for New Delhi.

Information about the purchase of 500 T-14 Armata tanks by the Indian military appeared in the Indian press in the middle of last year, however, due to the fact that the export version of this armored vehicle did not exist, the deal was supposed to be completed in 2021.

It should be noted that today India is one of the largest buyers of modern Russian weapons, in particular, we are talking about the S-400 Triumph air defense system as well as the likely purchase of a large number of fifth-generation Su-57 fighters, as previously reported by the media.

In addition to India, it is also planned to sell Russian T-14 Armata tanks to countries such as Algeria, Iran, Belarus, etc., and a clear interest in combat vehicles is actively traced throughout the world, since today it is not only a promising tank, but and a perfectly protected combat vehicle capable of repelling the attack of superior enemy forces in defense.


Where does India get so much money. Firstly, India is predicted to reach 8nd place in terms of GDP in 9-2 years. Understandably, China will come first, followed by India and the United States. India's economy is growing even faster than China's. Secondly, the composition of purchases, priorities and nomenclature of arms purchases. Each country considers certain supplies to be priority. It is often easier for us to upgrade the huge number of T-3s at our disposal. During modernization, they are practically not inferior to the T-72, and modernization is much cheaper. The same is true for other supplies to the army, the main thing is efficiency and defense capability, and not to show off. We have a huge amount of equipment that can be upgraded.

T90 is almost half of the park, wake up right now, 2021!

Where does India get so much money ??
We do not have that much in terms of subsurface resources, we cannot afford 500 fittings.

T90 has been with us until now.

And where to export .... And yourself inappropriate?

And he looks there - to sell the export "scanty" version and use this money to equip his army with full-fledged machines.

where the Russian leadership is looking, their country has not been updated with new tanks and aircraft, but they are making their new weapons for sale to other countries.
