Perhaps I should explain what induct means. It means the type enters active service in the armed forces. The Arjun did not enter service in 1997 or 1998 or even 2005. Despite what the GOI said. The statement was shoved down the IA's throats not the tank itself. Reason was poor performance of the tank. It entered service in 2006 because the tank cleared all trials and the army was pleased with its performance.I apologize for leaving a post in plain text without any highlights, underlines and colors. I should have known better than expecting you to simply read and comprehend.
LetÃ¢â¬â¢s give it another try, but this time with highlights, underlines and colors. Read my comment again, it says, Ã¢â¬ÅGOI decided to induct 124 Arjuns in 1997. Please take a note itÃ¢â¬â¢s the same year in which IA was still insistingÃ¢â¬Â¦ that the performance was below the acceptable standardsÃ¢â¬Â¦ Anyone with commonsense will tell you that inducting Arjuns at the same time IA was screaming itÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬Åperformance was [still] below the acceptable standardsÃ¢â¬Â tantamount to shoving down IAÃ¢â¬â¢s throat.Ã¢â¬Â
Hope that's clear.
