    According to Israeli media report India might rope in Israeli Military Industries (IMI) for joint partnership in the design and development of the proposed homemade future main battle tank and setting up a facility to jointly manufacture a variety of ammunition , India recently quietly lifted a ban on Israeli Military Industries (IMI) which it had imposed few years back due to corruption charges against them.

    In past IMI has worked with India on development of Arjun tanks . Indian army has still not cleared if new tank will be follow up of Arjun MK-2 tank or they want all new tank similar to weight class of T-90 . DRDO carried out third-party evaluation after disputes with Indian army emerged on performance of Arjun tanks, IMI was roped in which endorsed Arjun tanks performance has Excellent and on par with Tanks which are made in Israel . Israeli experts were also of the opinion that Arjun would outrun any competition, including Russian built T-90 tanks which are also in Indian Army’s Arsenal .After blacklisting IMI consultation for Arjun tank was curtailed but now India likely will re-engage with them soon .

    Arjun is a heavy class tank and much expensive than T 90 even it is considerably better than T 90.
    Israel knows how to play business trick.If they grab this JV deal it would be an another success story .No doubt.

    If all is goes well for them Israel would have considerable influence in our leadership like they did in US.Let see.

    Man,I do not like the Merkava much to be honest.Lets see what they come up with together.But one thing is for sure - the new tank won't be at the same weight class as T 90S,unless of course they choose to fit it with an unmanned turret.
