    there was some posting on this by a member here yesterday .. merge that if you can find it @Agent_47
    Alos, is the engine modified and uprated or is it a new engine? I believe the British and the Polish engines were being considered.

    ERA-2 is not going to defeat a tandem warhead ATGM .. the PA has Bakhtar Shikan (HJ-8), sporting a tandem warhead as also RPGs with the same.

    I wonder what is on about the N-ERA tech?

    Umm.......Arn't Tandam warheads designed to penetrate Reactive armor ? Curious question from a newb, Can NERA be placed on top of an ERA since NERA offers less protection than ERA ?

    Exactly. ERA is beaten by a tandem warhead. That is why I asked of NERA development as offshoot of progression on Kanchan Armour. Ideally ERA is backed by NERA as aim is to reduce the KE of KE Penetrator as also deflect it's second warhead,converting into a 'glancing blow', thereby reducing the penetration power. An enhanced NERA protection on steel hull of T72 can be achieved by the enhancement of NERA layering as add on.

    They were planning on rubber-epoxy admixture on ceramic base to enhance NERA protection of previous generation afforded by steel plating on the T-72. The off shoot project is progressive development of Project Arjun TD. Was wondering if anyone has news on this?

    DSEI 2017: India’s OFB expects IA order for 700 T-90S tanks in 2018

    I
    India’s state-owned Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) expects to receive an order in early 2018 to licence-build a total of 700 T-90S main battle tanks (MBTs) for the Indian Army (IA) by 2022, R K Khanna, the OFB’s director general, told Jane’s on 15 September at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) 2017 exhibition in London.

    India's OFB expects to receive an order in early 2018 to licence-build a total of 700 T-90S MBTs (similar to this one) for the IA by 2022, R K Khanna, the OFB's director general, told Jane's on 15 September at the DSEI 2017 defence exhibition. (Indian Ministry of Defence)

    The order will provide the IA with enough tanks to equip two new regiments and replace the retired T-55 MBTs. The move will also allow the OFB to increase its production share of the tank to 96% by manufacturing most of the electronics and mission systems, said Khanna, adding that a few essential elements will remain with external suppliers for the time being.
    The OFB has completed a technology transfer from Russia for the tank, which is designated the Bhishma in Indian service, and is already capable of manufacturing 74% of it without external assistance.

    The order, which is expected to be placed in April next year, will require a maximum capacity effort to produce 140 tanks a year and meet the completion date in 2022, Khanna added.
    Plans are also afoot for the ‘Bhishma 2’, which is a comprehensive upgrade programme proposed for the T-90S and also forms part of the 700 platform order. The upgrade will include the installation of a new panoramic sight and fire-control system for the tank commander, along with the installation of a completely digital architecture to ensure that the tank can be upgraded in the future.

    700.
    Positive tone of this article notwithstanding this is pretty much the end of Arjun saga.Only thing left now is spinoffs whose number will be in peanuts,if any.Hopefully some of the technology developed goes into FMBT, which won't be coming for more than a decade.This is just depressing.

    FMBT is assured in form of T-14 Armata.

    Arjun is finished years back.

    The real question remains if OFB will make MS variant of T90 or S variant
