    I hope they crack this, a multi-billion dollar expense will be saved.

    It can be exported to friendly countries too so money can be made on top of what will be saved.

    India must become a massive defence producer/exporter in next 5 - 10 years.

    People forget the 80-20 principle. It's probably more important to make domestic rifle, artillery, trainer planes etc. since they'll be evergreen requirements.

    Very good catch, possibly turrets are being tested for new tank design.
    Or it could be adapted (probability wise)
    T-72, Arjun, Vijayanta or Tank Ex.

    It seems they are playing around with new turret designs. This is at the firing range of ATAGS.

    So, Arjun turret has been modified. The upper one is for T-72. @Ripcord322

    Yeah ... it crossed my mind too that it was Tank Ex. But scuttlebutt had it that they were incorporating Merkava design style to it now - a truly remix tank in remix time

    As long as tank development is progressing in India, I'm happy.
