India decided to field Russian designed T-90 instead of the indigenous Arjun tank

In a setback to the Indian Army's tank fleet, the team which was competing in the global tank competition in Russian Federation has crashed out of race after the T-90 tanks broke down due to a technical snag. About 200 military diplomats and 300 foreign observers will attend the final competition of Tank Biathlon and the closing ceremony of the International Army Games in Alabino near Moscow, the organizers said on Saturday.

Following the breakdown of both the tanks, the Indian squad could not complete the race and was disqualified. The only other tanks which had made it to the final rounds were from Russia, Kazakhstan, China and Belarus. Indian Army's tank crews were seen to be strong challengers to win the competition but this development has dashed all hopes to ground.
