Obviously they cannot be replaced with Arjuns. It Arjun orders are to be placed, they will be for T72 units.
^^not sure why do you say so sir, Apart from weight, Arjun has distinguished itself on almost all parameters. In fact the famed T90 is quite a lot Arjunised. Arjun is probably more appropriate for western border.
There is a answer for this, however it will trigger the cyclic discussion which has happened for many pages on this thread.
Personally from my point of view, it is very simple. It is IA who will do the dying. None of us armchair generals. So IA has decided to ride it's fate with T90, so be it.
All said and done, it is just a machine. Hoping IA & DRDO are moving ahead with plans for future, instead of getting stuck with the saga.
