Description: The Arjun Main Battle Tank (MBT) was developed by India to provide enhanced survivability, lethality and fire on the move capability to Indian Army's armored units. It is an indigenous development started in 1971 with some parts supplied by foreign corporations. Externally, the Arjun MBT looks like Germany's Leopard 2 A4 and Japan's Type 90 MBTs.

The Arjun Mark-II is an improved variant of the Arjun main battle tank introduced in 2005/2006. The Mark-II features both major and minor improvements to the armored vehicle's design. The estimated price of a single Arjun Mk-II is 37 crores (370 million Indian Rupees) which is more than double of the price of the Mk-I variant. As of August 2011, India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) had already completed some technical tests of the Arjun Mark-II in the deserts of Rajasthan, India. The Indian Army is expected to place a first order for 124 Mk-II tanks by 2015.
