India’s Arjun MBT Mk II gears up for final leg of user trials

Defence scientists of Avadi (near Chennai) Combat Vehicle Research Development Establishment (CVRDE) are all set to take India’s Arjun Main Battle Tank (MBT) Mk II for the concluding phases of user trials.

During the fourth phase of trial, the tank will have to be tested for obstacle crossing and medium fording (water) capabilities. “The concluding phases of the user trials will begin in May 2014.

Indian Army sources say that a few of the improvements need to be further refined. Sources said that the missile (Israeli LAHAT) firing trials need to be conducted again for further validation. DRDO says it is confident that the Arjun MBT Mk II will prove its worth in the final leg of the user trials.
