India is rapidly modernizing its military as it focuses on boosting the firepower of its armed forces across the spectrum. Another development in this regard took place this week.
Amid a focus on modernizing its fleet of T-90 tanks, India's state-run manufacturer of armored vehicles, Armoured Vehicles Nigam Limited (AVNL), has unveiled the next-generation T-90 tanks, the T-90 Mark III.
The T-90 is the lynchpin of India's armored fleet and is the country's main battle tank. Hence, the development is important, because it would give a fillip to the tank's overall capabilities.
The rolling out of the tanks was done virtually through a ceremony presided over by Lt. General Vivek Kashyap, who serves as the Director General of the Indian Army's Armored Corps, and Sanjay Dwivedi, who is the chairman and the managing director of AVNL.

"HVF (Heavy Vehicles Factory), unit of AVNL, on 13/05/24, achieved a remarkable milestone by Rolling out T-90 Mk-III tanks. Lt. Gen. Vivek Kashyap, AVSM, VSM, DGAC, virtually flagged off First set of 10 T-90 Mk-III Tanks of 464 Indent for Indian Army in presence of Shri Sanjay Dwivedi, CMD/AVNL," AVNL said in a statement on X.

In the Indian Army, an Armored Regiment is commanded by an officer of the rank of Colonel or above.
A regiment features about 45 to 50 tanks in total.
At present, the Indian Army's Armored Corps has over 60 armored regiments.
