New Delhi: Amid ongoing border row with China following violent clashes in the Galwan Valley along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), India has deployed T-90 Bhishma tank, considered to be the world's most infallible tank in the world, in the eastern Ladakh region, according to Zee News.

The deployment of T-90 Bhishma also conveyed India's hidden message of gaining an edge over strategic and tactical terms. According to reports, border tension with China started in the month of May as China has started bringing armored vehicles.
China has T-95 tanks which are almost similar to T-90 tanks, which can give a befitting reply to any misadventure on part of China.
Key features of the T-90 Bhishma tank:
- It is the main battle tank of India with an excellent armored protection
