irrelevant -

1. tank combat is a thing of the past

2. tanks offer hardly any advantage to any military planner for the modern battle field

3. syria, iraq, yemen, armenia = the most advanced MBTs were stopped dead in tracks even with primitive ATGMs . the issue here is the massive proliferation of ATGMs and not the systems themselves

4. drones will finish off what an ATGM killer team cant ( ie a tank hiding behing a wall etc) ( as we saw in armenia)

5. india - pakistan defensive lines are criss crossed with ATGM line of fires, ditches, mine fields, more ditches and more minefields.... tanks will be relegated to glorified pill boxes in any future south asian conflict

Please yar this topic has been discussed to death. Why you people always quote assymetrical conflicts with conventional ones.

They get the engine from the AZ (730 HP).
T-85 always had 730 hp engine, it has not received engine upgrade
Type-85II tank Brochure.jpg


In fact If I am not mistaken it was AZ series which received T-85 engine as part of upgrade package
though ERA is missing on these tanks, I wonder if it can be added
it is optional as shown above in brochure of T-85-IIAP same can be seen below attached pic t the side and front of the turret

Recent Azerbaijan Armenia conflict showed drone's supremacy over tanks
And they cost fraction of em

Pak should focus more on these emerging technologies


This also questions the logic of buying a new tank like VT 4

Electronic can be installed in old ones

And even heavy armour can only provide limited protection
And with fast developing munitions
That protection too is degrading
