Abstract : In the past few decades, tanks have been developed into a highly effective weapon system, particularly useful in the short intense and highly dynamic scenario of modern warfare. However, with the advent of new technology, tanks would definitely have to undergo improvements to remain cost-effective as well as combat-effective. Such evolution is already taking place with new designs being developed as well as those still on the drawing board of advanced nations. In the race for technological domination, only those nations with a tradition of indigenous innovations and courage to tread new paths, can hope to remain dominant in the field of military technology.
