NEW YORK (TASS-DEFENSE): India has started talks with Russia to discuss the upgrade of about 1,000 T-90 tanks, Bloomberg business news agency reported.

A multi-million contract may be signed, the news agency added.

According to sources, the talks began on March 17-18 in New Delhi where India’s Defence Ministry was holding a relevant conference involving Russia.

The T-90 is one the most hi-tech tanks in the world. It can accurately fire ammunition of various types, including missiles, both in the daytime and at night.

Tanks of the type were involved in the Shatrujeet army exercise held in the state of Rajasthan in northwest India in April 2016.
