The Indian army, which was taking part in Moscow's global Tank Biathlon, has been knocked out of the competition after both of its T-90 battle tanks broke down facing mechanical problems.

The Tank Biathlon competition is an worldwide event conducted as part of the global Army Games held every year since 2013 at Alabino Ranges in Russian Federation.

The Indian squad, as a result of the breakdown, wasn't able to compete in the competition. Indian Army's tank crews were seen to be strong challengers to win the competition but this development has dashed all hopes to ground.

India was among 19 countries, including China, which participated in the high profile event.
