Indian Private Firm To Locally Repair Russian Origin T-72, T-90 Battle Tanks


Russian firm UVZ and India’s Punj Corporation Pvt Ltd (PCPL) have joined hands to undertake the repair and maintenance of T-72 and T-90 tank engines and radiators in India.

“For all the maintenance and repair activities undertaken by the PCPL including the supply of required spares, the UVZ would provide full technical support, personnel and ensure conformance to quality,” the Russian manufacturer said in a joint statement issued on Friday.

India has over more than 3500 T-90, T-72 tanks and its serviceability and maintenance has been a major cause of concern.

“The requirement of a suitable and simpler mechanism to improve the serviceability of tanks has been a long pending demand of the Indian government. This has now been initiated through the participation of Indian private industry,” Igor Kolikov, the Deputy Director General of UVZ said. Read More
