It is claimed that it can survive in harsh weather conditions with less logistics in high altitude areas.

The report says that the first prototype has been prepared. Soon it will be put into the field and after the testing is complete, it will be given for testing to those users who will operate it in future. Quoting another source, the report says that for the next 6 months, this tank will be tested in high altitudes including summer and winter and by August 2025, it will also be handed over to the Army for testing.
