History

The Arjun MK3 main battle tank is a Indian design based on the long running Arjun platform. Much like the German Panzer Main Battle Tank, the Arjun MK3 uses a conventional cannon instead of a more sophisticated railgun, which makes it less expensive to build and maintain. It was widely sold to 3rd party nations in Asia.

The Arjun MK3 makes use of a conventional ETC Cannon rather than a newer railgun for it’s ease of maintenance and reliability. It omits a copula mounted machinegun for a sensor suite which is mounted in that spot, however if needed the sensor can be removed and a machinegun added if needed. The Arjun MK3 offers a exterior camera to enhance the view of the driver similar to, though more basic than the one used on the Buffalo Main Battle Tank or Liberator Medium Tank. Lastly the Arjun MK3 has two racks of smoke/flare/chaff grenade launcher tubes to provide defense from enemy fire.
