India promised UVZ (Uralvagonzavod) to get rich and help accumulate funds. Soha (an online magazine in China) said who will become the world’s first supplier of tanks from Russia, namely the Armata T-14, this country will be India. Evidence has appeared that says that India is interested in Russian military equipment more than anyone else in the world. India extended the contract for the production of Russian T-90S tanks, and a document was made to purchase more than 400 T-90MS tanks (to be precise, 464 tanks), which underwent modernization and improvement. Now we have great power and strength.
“Armata” T-14 is fully ready for use in hostilities. Thus, India can support UVZ, so that the production of this equipment becomes – serial. The exact amount of the T-14 military unit that India ordered cannot be said, this is still being discussed. At the moment, we are talking about twelve units of the T-14 Armata, later a serial delivery will be organized, more than 400 vehicles. Nevertheless, these are not the 2,000 vehicles that were discussed in 2014-2015. The Chinese magazine portal says that India wants to buy more than 500 T-14 Armata tanks are planned to be purchased in 2021 year. In an article, Sohu says: “For India, this Russian tank will become a real gem.
But everything is not so simple and easy. UVZ says that the delivery of tanks to India can only be discussed when the plan of the T-14 tank is revealed and it is not classified. This is not the main problem, since the situation was similar with the supply of the SU-57 (Russian fighter), just to deliver the T-14 to India, you need to create a copy-modification of “Armata”. Example: T-90 tanks and the T-90S, SU-57 and SU-57E modification. Although such a modification was demonstrated at one exhibition in New Delhi.
Another problem is the USA. in 2016-2017, imposed sanctions for the purchase of equipment from Russia, India also falls under these sanctions, which is a huge problem.
