    All Indian T-90s are equipped with LEDS-150 APS with both soft and hard kill. While there was talks for Arjun to be equipped with some APS too but don't know the current situation.

    Arjun Mk.2 is equipped with a soft kill system, hardkill is being worked on in-house by DRDO.

    What is that is unclear to you? Indian T-90s are getting LEDS-150 APS( it consists of both soft and hard kill) and all 1650 T-90s would be equipped with that. Even Arjun tanks are equipped with some soft kill APS while DRDO is developing an indigenous hard kill APS for future.

    My dear,
    I asked for real tank, not a toy.
    As far as I know, there is NO APS (hard kill) in any Indian Tank. Be it T90, be it Arjun.
    Deal for LEDS was finalized back in 2009 when India ordered 1660 units.
    Don't know what happened next. I also heard the rumor that deal was canceled in favor of DRDO APS.

    That's correct

    Defensive suites
    Soft Kill include systems like Smoke Screens, Infrared Dazzlers , Electronic Jammers,Laser Warning System, it may also contain sensors to detect mines.

    Hard Kill include a detection system like a Radar ,along with high speed guided projectile or guided explosive which is fired to shoot down a Missile if detected...

    While some kind of Soft Kill system is prevalent today ,hard kill systems have been tested or deployed by a hand full of nations , notably Russia, Ukraine, Israel , USA ... UK and China also have either conducted tests which could lead to its development or said that they are working on it. Its speculated that Japanese and South Korean newest tanks too will have it.

    TATA is producing that for SAAB's market, it's also responsible to market it to the Indian market. IA hasnt picked that for it's T90S. Currently, only Arjun mark 2 has any sort of defence suite.

    @kaykay The suites have not been yet integrated on the tanks as far as I know. The systems may be in storage to be released in case of requirement, something India is known to indulge in as austerity measure.

    @Tipu7 you are right, None has been integrated as a regular feature as far as I know.
