    Tarmak007 -- A bold blog on Indian defence: BEL to mount IAF radars on Tata 6x6 platforms

    Tata Motors has bagged an order for the company’s fully indigenous Tata 6x6 multi-axle high mobility mobile platforms, from Bharat Electronic Limited (BEL), Bangalore, to mount Radar applications meant for the Indian Air Force.
    The Tata 6x6 versatile multi-axle vehicle platform, will give BEL’s radar system the mobility to be placed strategically, at almost any location, to detect both low-flying aircraft and `spy planes' or unmanned aerial vehicles, and the ability to detect other kinds of intrusions. Tata Motors will supply 26 Tata 6x6 multi-axle vehicles to BEL Bangalore.
    Tata Motors is also in the process of delivering 96 ‘Specialist Tractors’ for the Indian Defence forces “Akash” missile programme.
    Mr. Vernon Noronha, Vice President – Defence & Government Business, Tata Motors, said “Tata Motors offers a full range 6x6, 8x8 and 12x12 multi-purpose high mobility carriers, designed especially for integrating specialist rocket and missile systems. Tata 2038 6x6 vehicle platform also stands qualified by the Indian Army for GRAD BM21 Multi Barrel Rocket Launcher (MBRL) application after rigorous field firing evaluation trials.”
    Tata Motors’ portfolio includes various applications on its multi-axle range, from Missile Carrier Systems to a Water Purification System. Advanced missile programs like Brahmos, Pinnaka, and Akash have been demonstrated on Tata Motors multi-axle platforms.
    Tata Motors offers its defence customers a wide range of vehicles, in the light, medium and heavy category, having created a focused division to design and develop defence technologies and products, at its manufacturing facilities in Jamshedpur and Pune. Tata Motors also has a dedicated service team and network for defence products, across the length and breadth of the country.
    The company also has the ability to mobilise adequate manufacturing capacity for defence requirements, along with dedicated exclusive infrastructure, manufacturing facilities and trained manpower, to ensure faster delivery of its defence vehicles.
    Tata Motors recently delivered around 40 MPVs to the Jharkhand and Maharashtra State Police, and over 150 Tata Light Armoured Troop Carriers (LATC) to Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and Gujarat State Police.

    THD-1955 seen up close.

    This THD-1955 E/F-band radar, though somewhat elderly, still has sterling performance characteristics and is capable of maximum detection ranges of up to 1000 km, though the Indian Air Force usually limits its power to a 400km detection range. These form the core of the ADCCs.
