DRDO and L&T Light Tank Zorawar To Be Ready For Army Trials Along China Border By Year End

New Delhi: The light tank Zorawar being jointly developed jointly by the DRDO and private sector firm L&T is expected to be ready for trials in the high-altitude mountainous border with China by the end of this year.
“The tank is expected to be ready for trials by the end of this year and would be immediately sent to the Ladakh sector for our own trials. Once we are ready, we will hand it over to the Army for user trials,” senior DRDO officials told ANI.
“The present order is for 59 of these tanks but the order can go up to 600 tanks. There is also a need being felt for using these tanks for operations in the Rann of Kutch area and the desert terrain where they can travel at high speeds,” the officials added.
The need for the light tank was felt during the ongoing standoff with China in 2020 when the People’s Liberation Army showed up along the Line of Actual Control with their light tanks which can travel and manoeuvre faster than the conventional tanks.
The tank has been named after the legendary General Zorawar Singh who led multiple successful victories in Tibet which is now controlled by the Chinese Army.
After the standoff started, the Indian Army had to induct a considerable number of T-72 and T-90 tanks in operational areas, gaining tactical surprise over the adversary and thereby forcing the adversary on a back foot.Β  DRDO and L&T Light Tank Zorawar To Be Ready For Army Trials Along China Border By Year End DRDO and L&T Light Tank Zorawar To Be Ready For Army Trials Along China Border By Year End DRDO and L&T Light Tank Zorawar To Be Ready For Army Trials Along China Border By Year End DRDO and L&T Light Tank Zorawar To Be Ready For Army Trials Along China Border By Year End IgMp
