India will become the world’s first supplier of tanks from Russia, namely the Armata T-14. Evidence has appeared that says that India is interested in Russian military equipment more than anyone else in the world.
India extended the contract for the production of Russian T-90S tanks, and a document was made to purchase more than 400 T-90MS tanks (to be precise, 464 tanks), which underwent modernization and improvement. Now we have great power and strength.
The exact amount of the T-14 military unit that India ordered cannot be said, this is still being discussed. At the moment, we are talking about twelve units of the T-14 Armata, later a serial delivery will be organized, more than 400 vehicles. Nevertheless, these are not the 2,000 vehicles that were discussed in 2014-2015.
The Chinese magazine portal says that India wants to buy more than 500 T-14 Armata tanks are planned to be purchased in 2021 year. In an article, Sohu says: “For India, this Russian tank will become a real gem.
The delivery of tanks to India can only be discussed when the plan of the T-14 tank is revealed and it is not classified.
This is not the main problem, since the situation was similar with the supply of the SU-57 (Russian fighter), just to deliver the T-14 to India, you need to create a copy-modification of “Armata”.
Example: T-90 tanks and the T-90S, SU-57 and SU-57E modification. Although such a modification was demonstrated at one exhibition in New Delhi.
Another problem is the USA. in 2016-2017, imposed sanctions for the purchase of equipment from Russia, India also falls under these sanctions, which is a huge problem.
