    Against the backdrop of a freeze on procurement of Tatra trucks, the Armed Forces have started looking for alternative vehicles to equip them with their missile systems.

    In view of Defence Ministry’s decision to put on hold the procurement of Tatra trucks pending the CBI probe into allegations of bribery by former Army Chief Gen V K Singh, several key missile projects of the Army and the Air Force have been held up.

    So let's see MAZ from Belarus produces heavy trucks and from Russia we have Ural,Kamaz and Zil.

    Better go with TATA

    Well i believe the requirement is for trucks to serve as TEL vehicles, in such a case the only domestic vehicle we already have certified for the stresses a heavy missile can exert during launch is the TATA 12X12 which has been certified as the launch platform for the PRAHAAR system. the Agni series(apart for the AGNI 1) already uses articulated launch trucks the tractor of which can be any high powered make as it does not have to face any heavy stresses.
    the only missile systems currently deployed on the TATRA platform are the Prithvi , BRAHMOS LACM and the AGNI 1.
    i believe we should go with MAZ or MZKT/VOLAT for now as these are by far the most capable deployed heavy missile launch trucks available the world over today. simultaneously we should try to absorb some of the tech to build our own MAZ analogue like china has done with the Wanshan TEL wich is again based on a MAZ design.
