Arjun tanks to be tested

NEW DELHI, OCT. 15. The Army will carry out a major field trial in December to evaluate its newly inducted Arjun Main Battle Tank (MBT) and other tanks, the Army Chief, N.C. Vij said.

"The T-90 with its thermal imaging system as well as the MBT can take on any tank in the world," he told mediapersons after laying the foundation stone of the Army Technology Centre here.

On the Arjun tank being sent back to the Avadi factory after its launch, General Vij said this was normal as equipment had to be improved upon continuously. "No country inducts highly technical equipment on the first go," he said.
