This tank is entirely manufactured using Indian technology. The most challenging and robust component of this tank is its 105mm main gun. After successful trials, production of the formidable tank will commence in series in India.
In response to China’s Type 15 tank, India is ready with the formidable light tank. This tank is entirely manufactured using Indian technology. Trials for this tank will commence by the end of November. According to The Economic Times report, after successful trials, India plans to deploy it at several locations along the border with China. It will be the most capable tank for operating at high altitudes. In fact, the tanks deployed by China along the border with India are made with technology that allows them to operate at high altitudes while being lightweight, making them easily movable from one place to another.
China border’s ‘Specialist’
The current name of this tank is Joravar. It is capable of operating at high altitudes. Deployed along the border with China in Ladakh, it can function to its full capacity. It will be specifically stationed along the high-altitude border areas connecting China and India. Being lightweight, it can be easily transported from one place to another.
The tank has been developed in response to the 2020 incursions by China in Ladakh. A notable feature of the tank is its capability to protect itself from attacks. To enhance visibility in the battlefield, it is equipped with unmanned aerial vehicles. This feature enhances the tank’s ability to both defend itself and launch attacks during times of conflict. The Joravar tank can be deployed in high altitudes, extending from mountainous terrains to icy landscapes.
China has deployed light tanks along the border with India. Consequently, it was crucial for India to respond with similar weaponry. Hence, India has now developed this tank as a response to such arsenals. This tank will incorporate the highly advanced K-9 Vajra’s automatic gun chassis that India already possesses.
The trial for this tank will commence at the end of November and will undergo several trials in the month of December. After passing through multiple trials, it will be deployed along the border with China. This is a joint project between DRDO and Larsen & Toubro. This tank will strengthen the Indian Army, providing it with enhanced mobility and precise firepower. Due to its high mobility and accurate firepower capabilities, it holds significant importance for the Indian military.
