SP's LandForces - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

In­dia’s armed forces are seek­ing alternative ve­hi­cles to in­stall mis­sile sys­tems in the wake of an im­pend­ing ban on the ac­qui­si­tion of Ta­tra all-ter­rain trucks. It was heard that mil­i­tary of­fi­cials were analysing trucks pro­posed by Rus­sian and Be­laru­sian com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing Vo­lat trucks man­u­fac­tured by MZKT. A meet­ing was held re­cently with all stake­hold­ers un­der Di­rec­tor Gen­eral (Ac­qui­si­tion) of the Min­istry of De­fence (MoD) to dis­cuss the pro­pos­als. Upon ap­proval, the trucks will un­dergo com­pre­hen­sive field tri­als and are also ex­pected to be equipped with mis­siles sys­tems in or­der to test their ef­fi­cacy. demon­stra­tion lasted for ap­prox­i­mately 25 min­utes and suc­cess­fully val­i­dated proven un­manned ca­pa­bil­i­ties avail­able for in­te­gra­tion into ro­tor­craft to sup­port in­tel­li­gence, sur­veil­lance and re­con­nais­sance, re­sup­ply and other op­er­a­tions.
