    It won't be dropped. You are absolutely correct here. This will be the platform for the new project.

    The issue is the deadline given to DRDO and HAL by Modi. He has told them to either perform or pack up :)

    hence a desperation ... since when has DRDO been the nodal agency to comment on survivability and terrain mobility of equipment? Trial and actual warfighting are separate issues.

    The Arjun design isn't a good design now. It's a 3rd gen design. A new tank should have an unmanned turret, crew capsule etc. You can have a 2 crew tank now along with a bunch of unmanned tanks. Arjun, or even Merkava, Abrams etc cannot be designed that way.

    What do you think about FRCV and FMBT as two separate projects?

    It was the original Arjun powerpack designed indigenously. After its failure they created a national mission on engine called Hindustan Power Pack program.
