Ahmedabad: The Defense Research and Development Authority (DRDO) has started trials of its light battle tank Zorawar in Hazira, Gujarat.

The tank, jointly developed by DRDO and Larsen & Toubro (L&T) Limited, is a first tank that has been designed and made ready for trials in the record time of two years.

The 25-ton Zorawar will meet the Indian Army’s requirements in the eastern Ladakh sector against Chinese deployment across the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

The tank has been named after the 19th-century Dogra General Zorawar Singh, who led the armed operations in Ladakh and Western Tibet.

With its amphibious credentials, the lightweight tank can traverse steep climbs in mountains and cross rivers and other water bodies much more easily than its predecessors, like the heavy-weight T-72 and T-90 tanks.
