Mahindra Defence to Supply 1,300 Light Specialist Vehicles to Indian Army

    The Defence Ministry signed a contract with Mahindra Defence Systems Ltd (MDSL) for the supply of 1,300 Light Specialist Vehicles to the Indian Army.

    The ₹1,056 crore contract will provide a further boost to the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the government according to the Defence Ministry. The induction of vehicles is planned to be completed in four years.

    The Light Specialist Vehicle is a modern fighting vehicle and will be authorised to various fighting units for the carriage of Medium Machine Guns, Automatic Grenade Launchers as well as Anti-tank Guided Missiles.

    The Light Specialist Vehicles are indigenously designed and developed by MDSL. These combat vehicles are extremely agile with all-round protection against small arms fire and will assist small independent detachments which are required to operate this weapon platform in the operational area.

    This is a flagship project showcasing the indigenous manufacturing capabilities of the defence industry and will add another milestone to the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan’ and ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Government.
