14 Août 2017

Following the breakdown of both the tanks, the Indian squad could not complete the race and was disqualified.

International Army Games involve 28 events which are organised in Russia, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and China.

India is competing with 18 other countries, including China, in the "Tank Biathlon" which began on July 29.

The Tank Biathlon competition is an worldwide event conducted as part of the global Army Games held every year since 2013 at Alabino Ranges in Russian Federation. Indian Army's tank crews were seen to be strong challengers to win the competition but this development has dashed all hopes to ground. India had made a decision to field its top of the line Russian designed T-90 Main Battle Tank instead of the indigenous Arjun tank which was widely expected to participate in the games this time.
