Arjun is a bigger tank when compared to T-90 and it’s quite obvious not only from outside. Even the insides are completely different. Inside T-90 there is hardly any room for movement or even partial stretching of limbs. Arjun on the other hand is spacious and much more comfortable. See for yourself in the pictures. Unfortunately too many pictures came out bad due to incorrect camera settings and shortage of time.

Visit to OFB pavilion was a pleasant surprise. I met some representatives who were really helpful and patient with explaining how their stuff worked. I got some nice explanations about working of different types of tank ammunitions and their respective roles. Much better than someone like me with no credentials could expect from a PSU.
