India and China looking to buy Russian Armata tanks


India and China are among countries which have shown interest in acquiring the new T-14 ‘Armata’ tank, Russia’s most advanced tank which was unveiled at the 70th Anniversary commemorative Victory Day celebrations in Moscow last month.

Armata technology may be used for Indian armoured vehicles, and could replace the existing main battle tanks ‘Arjun’ and other armoured carriers, a researcher at a leading Indian think tank said.

“India needs more advanced technologies, considering the dynamic growth of the neighbours’ armament”, Dr Rajeswari Pillai Rajagopalan, senior research fellow in the field of defence and security at the ‘Observer Research Foundation’ (ORF) said in an interview to RIR.
