India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has unveiled the first images of its highly anticipated Zorawar Light Battle Tank. Developed in collaboration with private sector giant Larsen & Toubro (L&T), the Zorawar is poised to undergo army trials following the successful completion of internal testing.

Designed for swift maneuverability in high-altitude regions, the Zorawar is a compact powerhouse weighing in at 25 tons. It packs a punch with a 105mm gun, ideal for engaging enemy targets. The tank boasts advanced optics from French company Safran Paseo, enhancing situational awareness for the crew.


Another notable feature is the John Cockerill 3105 remote-controlled weapon station (RWS). This two-person turret integrates an autoloader system, configurable with either 12 or 16 rounds, and offers a 42-degree elevation limit for the main gun. This configuration proves particularly advantageous in confined urban environments.

The Zorawar’s engine deserves a mention as well. It is powered by a dependable American-supplied Cummins engine, ensuring optimal performance and reliability.

The reveal of the Zorawar marks a significant milestone in India’s quest for self-reliance in defense technology. The tank’s successful internal trials and upcoming army evaluation generate anticipation for its potential induction into the Indian Army’s arsenal.

This indigenous light tank, named after the 19th-century Dogra ruler Zorawar Singh, is expected to play a crucial role in safeguarding India’s borders, particularly in mountainous regions.
