India's own tank Zorawar is coming…China will be destroyed! Know its features


New Delhi Amid the border dispute with China, India is developing indigenous tanks. India has crossed an important milestone in the construction of the light-weight tank Zorawar. The indigenous tank Zorawar is considered very important for the high altitude areas of Ladakh. With the inclusion of Zorawar in the army, India's position against China will be strengthened. This tank can run at a higher speed in hilly areas.

Why is Zoravar special?

Learning from the Russia-Ukraine conflict, DRDO has integrated USV to carry weapons in the Zoravar tank. The light tank Zoravar weighs 25 tonnes. This is the first time that a new tank has been designed and prepared for testing in such a short time. The special thing about the Zoravar tank is its combination of weight and basic parameters of a tank. This tank has fire, strength, mobility and protection.

It is indeed an important day for all of us to see the light tank in action. It is a matter of joy and pride for me. It is truly an example. In a short span of two to two and a half years, we have not only designed this tank but also made its first prototype. It is expected that Zorawar will be inducted into the Indian Army by the year 2027 after all the tests.

Ready in record time

Developed in a record time of two years, this tank is a proof of India's progress in indigenous manufacturing. The light tank Zorawar weighs 25 tonnes and this is the first time that a new tank has been designed in such a short time. Now it has been prepared for testing. 59 of these tanks will be made available to the army initially and this will lead to a larger program of 295 more armored vehicles. The Indian Air Force can supply two tanks at a time in the C-17 class transport aircraft as this tank is light and can be driven at high speed in mountain valleys. The tests are expected to be completed in the next 12-18 months and ready for induction. Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) chief Sameer V Kamath said on Saturday that the indigenous light tank Zorawar is expected to be inducted into the Indian Army by the year 2027 after all the tests.

The DRDO chief told ANI that it is really an important day for all of us to see the light tank in action. It makes me happy and proud. It is really an example. In a short period of two to two and a half years we have not only designed this tank but also made the first prototype. Now the first prototype will undergo development trials in the next six months. Then we will be ready to offer it to our users for user trials. After all the trials, Zoravar is expected to be inducted into the Indian Army by the year 2027.

The world is working on light tanks

Rajesh Kumar, director of DRDO Tank Lab, said that there are generally three different types of tanks. There are three categories based on weight. Heavy tanks, medium tanks and light tanks. Each one has its own role. One is for defense, one for attack. These light tanks play a mixed role for both. So if you look at light tanks, many players in the world are making light tanks. There are Western tanks, there are Russian tanks, there are Chinese tanks.

L&T is also a part of this project

Speaking about the Zoravar tank, Arun Ramchandani, Executive Vice President, Larsen & Toubro (L&T), said that today is a big day for L&T. Within two years we have brought the tank to a stage where it can be taken for internal trials and very soon for user trials. It has been a huge effort. It is a joint effort of DRDO and L&T. He said, I think this is a great achievement of both these teams. No new product has been deployed in such a short time anywhere in the world. This is an amazing achievement for both DRDO and L&T.
