Russia will ship the second batch of 40 T-90 main battle tanks to India next month under an $800 million deal signed last February, defence industry sources said.
The first batch was shipped in December last year by Nizhny Tagil-based Uralvagonzavod tank plant in Sverdlovsk region.
The Indian contract will be executed on time, Sverdlovsk Governor Eduard Rossel said.
Out of 310 tanks, 124 have to be supplied fully assembled to India, while 86 would be in semi-knocked down and 100 in completely knocked down condition for assembly at the Heavy Vehicles Factory at Avadi in Tamil Nadu, Rossel said.
