India To Continue Production of Russian MBT 14 February, 2017

Russia extended India's licence to manufacture T-90S main battle tanks upon New Delhi's request. Indian Ministry of Defence has approved a major arms purchase which includes 464 T-90 tanks by the end of last year at cost of approximately $2.1 billion. T-90 tanks will be equipped with thermal imaging night vision cameras and some additional countermeasures to significantly reduce the chances of being hit.

India has already inducted 18 regiments of T-90 tanks which are deployed in Rajasthan and Punjab.
