 Arjun
The Arjun is a third-generation major fighting tank developed by the Defence Research and Development Organization's Combat Vehicles Research and Development Establishment for the Indian Army. The project was started in 1986 and finished in 1996. An Arjun primary battle tank was brought into service by the Indian Army in 2004. The Arjun was first given to the 43rd Armoured Regiment, which was established in 2009.
The Arjun tanks are outfitted with the Integrated Fire Control Technology, an indigenous firefighting system developed by BEL (IFCS). The IFCS includes a computerized ballistic computer that gathers input from microprocessor-based sensors such as airspeed, inclination angle, target range, speed of the vehicle, and so on to provide an accurate shooting solution.

T-72
The Russian T-72 primary battle tanks were built in the Malyshev HMB Plant in Kharkov, Ukraine, and the UKBM Nizhny Tagil plant in the Russian Federation, and it was licenced to a variety of nations. The T-72 went into manufacturing in 1972, and an estimated 50,000 were made. India, Bulgaria, Algeria, the Czech Republic, Cuba, Hungary, Finland, Iran, Slovakia, Myanmar, Libya, Poland, Romania, Yugoslavia North Korea,  and Syria have all purchased T-72s.
The T-72 is driven by an 840 horsepower V12 liquid-cooled, four-stroke multi-fuel diesel engine. It is equipped with the planetary transmission with a hydraulic servo-control mechanism, RMSH track running gear, and torsion bar suspension with hydraulic shock absorbers. The tanker has a top speed of 60 km/h on paved roads and 35 km/h on dirt roads. It has a road range of 500 km with the primary gasoline tank. Without preparations, the tank can tackle crossing the river depths of up to 1.2 m, and snorkels may be installed for fording depths of up to 5 m. It measures 6.91 metres in length, 2.19 metres in height, and 3.58 metres in width.

BMP-1
The Soviet Union developed the BMP-1 in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The crew of this infantry combat vehicle consists of the commander, gunner, and driver. The commander might be located behind the driver. In addition, the truck transports an infantry unit of eight fully armed personnel. The BMP-1 includes two rear entrance doors, roof hatches, firing ports, and other characteristics that distinguish it as a true infantry combat vehicle capable of not only transporting personnel into battle but also supporting dismounts on the battlefield with its firepower. The BMP-1's small internal dimensions, on the other hand, were always a drawback.
 
BMP-2
The BMP-2 is a Russian infantry combat vehicle of the second generation. Boyevaya Mashina Pekhoty meaning "Infantry Combat Vehicle") is an acronym for Boyevaya Mashina Pekhoty. ISO Group offers spare parts and maintenance services for all BMP models. ISO Group specializes in BMP engine components, drivetrains, transmissions, trackshoes, electric assemblies, weapon systems, and accessories.
ISO Group is an industry leader in the provision of OEM and aftermarket spare parts, as well as Rebuild Services. Our sales and support team has access to and expertise in over 120 million distinct parts for clients worldwide.
 
BMP-2/Sarath
The BMP-2M infantry combat vehicle is an improved version of the BMP-2 (IFV). Kurganmashzavod JSC created and built the IFV, which gives armed forces improved speed and firepower. The modified vehicle's weaponry system is the competence of the KBP Instruments Design Bureau. During the Tampere 2015 Comprehensive Security Exhibition, the vehicles were also displayed show. The BMP-2 "Sarath," also known as the BMP-II in India, is a licensed-made variant of the BMP-2 developed by Ordnance Factory Medak. The very first car was constructed in 1987 with KBP-supplied parts. By 1999, India had produced over 90% of the total vehicle and its associated systems. It was predicted that 1,250 automobiles would have been built by 2007. About 2,500 Saraths had indeed been constructed as of February 2020.
 
T-90 BHISHMA
The T-90S is an improvement to the T-72 tanks that India currently manufactures in-house. T-90S Bhishma has been updated by engineers from India, Russia, and France working together. The T-90 Bhishma tanks include French Thales-built Catherine-FC thermal sights and Russian Kontakt-5 K-5 explosive reactive armour plates. The tank has a max speed of 60kmph and is powered by an 1130 HP engine. It is equipped with a 125mm smoothbore main gun and a 12.7mm heavy machine gun.
 
Mortar Carrier Tracked
The Sarath tank serves as the foundation for the Carrier Mortar Tracked vehicle. The mortar is launched from a two-door aperture on the hull's top. It has a maximum range of 5,000 metres and shoots at a rate of 6-8 rounds per minute on average. It is capable of being operated by all mechanised infantry battalions and travels alongside the leading mechanised troops, providing instant fire support to a distance of five kilometres behind enemy lines. It can also protect members of the crew from mortar attacks. The vehicle is capable of amphibious travel as well as serving as an aerial target.
 
M777
The M777 Lightweight 155mm Howitzer, which replaces the M198 towed Howitzer, offers rapid, precise, and consistent firepower in aid of Marine and Army infantry formations.
The Army and Marine Corps began using the M777 in 2005, which is a significantly smaller, lighter (9,000 pounds lighter), and more agile towed cannon armament than its predecessor, resulting in better transportability and mobility without sacrificing range or accuracy. The M777s are moved by seven-ton trucks, allowing artillery groups to move quickly between locations.
The howitzer is a must-have piece of equipment for an expeditionary force, as it can be hoisted externally by both the MV-22 Osprey and the CH-53E Super Stallion, as well as a single CH-47 Chinook.
 
Tank Exp
Tank Ex, or MBT Ex, was the codename for the primary battle tank constructed by the Indian Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in 2002. Tank Ex was developed as a follow-up to the DRDO's Ajeya project, to capitalise on the technology developed for that project. It was tested for six months before being rejected by the Indian Army. In total, eight Tank Ex prototypes were built.
 
T-54 MBT
The T-54 is a legend. It was utilised more widely compared to any other Cold War or modern MBT to date. It was provided to or manufactured by Warsaw Pact nations, which formed the majority of military armies throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Then it served alongside Middle Eastern allies (Egypt, Syria, Jordan) and other non-aligned and third-world states. Along with the Polish and Czech versions, a whopping 83,500 were created (21,000 more). It was widely connected with colonial or independence battles all over the world, and it is nonetheless one of the most prevalent pieces of armoured military equipment today. The T-54 was duplicated by China under the Type 59 designation, and it was widely disseminated across Asia, most notably in North Vietnam Laos, North Korea, and Cambodia are all on the list.
