Ashok Leyland Ltd. (ALL) has partnered with Combat Vehicles Research and Development Establishment (CVRDE) for the development and manufacture of high horse power engines. The company announced the development of a 600 hp, indigenous engine series for combat vehicles under the ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat’ initiative. These engines are known to have been inaugurated and tested by Pravin K Mehta, Distinguished Scientist and Director General (ACE) in the presence of senior officers of DRDO and Ashok Leyland at the Engine Development Centre, Ashok Leyland, at Vellivoyalchavadi, in Chennai. The engine is claimed to have been developed in record time despite the Covid-19 induced restrictions using modern and innovative methods. ALL is looking at innovating the mobility space for defence requirements and is expected to put the engine series through the paces ahead of their application in tanks.
