India Approves Procurement of 464 T-90MS Main Battle Tanks


India’s Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), headed by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has approved a $1.93 billion procurement of 464 Russian-made T-90MS main battle tanks (MBTs) for service in the Indian Army earlier this month.

The signing of a final contract between the Indian Ministry of Defense (MoD) and Russia’s arms export agency, Rosoboronexport, could take place in the coming months. However, according to Defense News, it is unlikely that the MoD will sign the contract unless Russian tank maker Uralvagonzavod increases local production of the T-90MS MBT from 40 percent to 80 percent.

According to Indian Army officers, cited by IHS Jane’s, the new MBTs will be delivered in kit form for assembly by India’s state-owned Heavy Vehicles Factory (HVF), a subdivision of the Ordnance Factories Board, in Avadi in southeastern India.  Read More
