Thanks for bringing out the real story about Arjun. Seeing is believing and testing it to get the real feel of it only can be convincing. Let luck not be the deciding factor to decide the future of Arjun. There is a plenty of committed people who had sweated on this. they deserve better than that.

Hi Shiv…

After long time, watched your program in Headlines Today show…Neat and nice to see you on Arjun. Thanks for bringing out a ttrue report on Arjun with candid remarks. Hope your message would reverberate in the ears of Ordance Directorate procurement board.

How is the Arjun suspension looks like, with all ur cross country drive ? When you drove the Arjun down the high mound with its nose plungged in the ground, how you felt?..some snuggy questions..:-)

So now will you apologize for all the BS that you wrote about the Arjun earlier heh?

Lets see whether you have the guts to do that.
Only when you admit you were wrong and have the honesty to admit it, will people respect you and see that you have finally matured.

Interesting report Shiv…. looks like you gave the beauty a few dents and bumps. Would have liked to see better camera work though… the whole report was filled with you driving around. And the music!!! would love more technical info, esp about the handling qualities, especially the ride, given the previous suspension problems. Would have also loved to see more inside the tank… especially the commanders station, and overall crew stations. That would have given a great idea of how comfortable the crew is. And info about indigenization of components was sorely missed. an interesting thing I noticed was the… Read more »

Shiv,
Was there restriction on what you can show about Arjun? I was eagerly waiting to watch Arjun’s turret in stabilized mode,however in the video it was shot with tree/bushes front of it,thereby blocking the view completely.

Any info on what is been expected of 2020 requirement? Does this mean IA is expecting a future tank to be ready in 2020?

Did you happen to fire the Arjun? Unfortunately there is no video what’s so ever of Arjun firing or fire on the move.

Mr. Aroor, your report on Arjun was a great pleasure to watch and very informative. It was a balanced and revealing. Besides, it was very appreciable to watch you driving the Arjun and maneuver it on difficult terrain. The awe and excitement of seeing the Arjun maneuver, did help in suppressing the envy toward you. The most appreciable the report was that this was the first time, as you rightly said, that the Indian MIC was showcased to the public through a dedicated media coverage. IT WAS UNPRECEDENTED IN MEDIA AS WELL AS DEFENCE HISTORY. Headlines Today and you have… Read more »

Hi, I was just going through your blog, and happend to read a post that you had written in March of 2007 titled “Hasimara and the third degree”. Needless to say that I was quite disturbed to have read such a scathing article about some of the most senior members of the IAF. It was only after sleeping over it for a night and rereading your post the next day that I realized that you seem to be quoting another retired Air Force officer. Knowing a bit about your background, it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out who… Read more »

Dear Mr. Aroor,
The youtube videos were amazing. I have forwarded them to all. But do tell me, did you actually hear it go bang bang?
