Well it's real, at least as a mock-up. the vehicle depicted is as SPIEZ correctly estimated a 12X12 to be more specific it is the TATA LPTA5252 12X12 vehicle developed specifically for TEL applications for missiles like the Prahaar, Brahmos LACM and Nirbhay . the vehicle has high- mobility features like ABS, central tire inflation system auxiliary gear box with high and low speed mode and differential locks system. The Vehicle is powered by a 520BHP Turbo diesel engine and generally is meant to be used in a 12x8 configuration on normal roads the 12x10 or 12x12 being used as per terrain requirements.

Gentlemen one more scoop from DEFEXPO by yours truly, Ashok Leyland has tied up with KMW to offer the DONAR SPG TO THE IA, what is the DONAR well in simple words it's the Pzh2000 gun on a smaller tracked carrier that makes it a helluva more compact system.
from the Leyland stall
Btw, Denel is back with TATA..
Kunal, is this Denel & TATA tie-up is for only SPG or for 155mm artillary as well. What will be the platform for the SPG? is TATA going to come up with some wheeled version of the SPG with Denel's Gun?
Yes, The SPG is a Gun mounted system ( Marketing Term )
Right now only MGS, Not Towed or tracked..
The platform is the TATA 8x8 truck, Same one used for Prahaar..
If selected it can be also available in towed and tracked..
PS. Looks like Denel did took advice from Sayareakd Sir
As of now the TATA 8x8 and electronics are being assembled in India and then sent to South Africa for integration with the gun, the total system is right now competing with worldwide artillery companies for a contract by the Indonesian military.The gun is the same as the DENEL T5-52 CONDOR that was developed initially in the nineties keeping India in mind.
As per my conversation with the TATA team they are trying to pressurize the GOI into letting the artillery division of DENEL free from the ban the logic being that no wrongdoing was detected in the arty tender by DENEL.
