The fundamental role of an Armoured Recovery and Repair Vehicle (ARRV) is to recover disabled combat tanks and take them to a place, where they can be repaired and replenished to be ready for battle again. Each individual tank is an important combat asset and keeping it battle-fit at the right location is a major logistic effort.

Arjun ARRVs are built as variants of Main Battle Tanks - Arjun MBT. Main automotive components and sub-systems are virtually identical to the battle tank. This commonality ensures simplified spares inventory and crew training leading to easier and more efficient logistics. The ARRV is a highly dedicated vehicle and has no armament other than a 12.5 mm AD Gun and crew weapons for local defense.

ARRV is powered by 1400 hp diesel engine with fully automatic transmission. ARRV consist of major recovery systems driven by hydraulic power 

  • Main Winch - 50 tonne Double capstan-type,

  • Crane  - 20 tonne with 3m working radius,
  • Anchor-cum-Dozer
