    Possibly one of those extremely ultra rare and unique Chieftains that served in Vietnam?

    Is it an Arjun MBT (Indian)?
    Though it could be an M1, but i've actually never seen one, but the gun looks small so It can't be an M1A1 or A2.

    Nope, It's not an Arjun. It's an M1. Final answer. Just checked my book.
