    Indian Army Finally Ordered a New Fleet of Mine Protected Vehicles
    The Indian Army and the Border Security Force (BSF) had notified their soldiers on the ground to make a list of requirements, reports India Today.

    The soldiers reportedly made a list that includes rifles, ammunition, bulletproof jackets, hand-held thermal imagers, night vision devices, sandbags and fresh communication lines.

    However, the notification does little to raise the hopes of the Army soldiers. As an officer leading a battalion at the Line of Control (LoC) points out:

    This happens every time things tense up. While a few things will be made available, most will not. Invariably, matters fall back to the same old pace. We hope things are different this time.

    The BSF requires 3.5 lakh bulletproof vests and has ordered 50,000 earlier in the year. However, quantity and quality of the vests may not be up to the mark, the report claims citing sources.

    The Indian Army has asked for 250 Mine Protected Vehicles (MVP) which can carry up to a dozen soldiers and protect them through minefields of Improvised Explosive Devices (IED).

    The order has reportedly been placed with the Vehicle Factory Jabalpur (VFJ) and the delivery is expected to begin by 2018.

    The Army started using MPVs in the early 1990s while countering insurgencies. An officer close to the case said the new fleet of vehicles have been finalised after several rounds of testing.

    J&K: Army gets heavy firepower to fight terrorists this summer
    [​IMG]
    New Delhi: The Centre has given a major push to equip the Army and central paramilitary forces with advanced weapons and equipment in anticipation of increased militant activity in Kashmir valley in summer.

    Intelligence agencies have hinted that militant activity may reach an all-time high this summer, people familiar with the matter said. This was the first time in over a decade that any government has overhauled the entire weapon system of security forces deployed in the Valley, the people said.

    They said the first consignment of lightweight bulletproof vests — which has been a longstanding demand of the security forces — and mine and bulletproof vehicles, lightweight rocket launchers (shoulder mounted), Tavor assault rifles and rapid-fire Glock 17 pistols have already reached the Valley. The next lot is expected in the next few weeks.

    In the next batch, the security forces would be armed with H&K MP-5 sub-machine guns (known for low recoil), sniper rifles, improved communication gadgets and special boots which can sustain an improvised explosive device blast.

    People familiar with the matter said this was a major initiative by the Centre in its fight against terror in the Valley, and the entire equipment will be delivered to security personnel before the onset of summer.

    The Centre is still exploring possibilities of procuring non-lethal weapons for crowd control, although the paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force has already said it was planning to use a modified version of the pellet guns. These guns allegedly inflicted severe eye injuries to protesters in the Valley last year.

    “While we want to insulate protesters from any major injuries, there will be major crackdown against militants in the summer months,” said a security officer who did not want to be named.

    “Intelligence reports already suggest that militants are planning major offensive in the Valley. Even last year the infiltration attempts were at an all-time high,” the officer said. The new weapons will also be given to forces deployed along the International Border and the Line of Control with Pakistan.

    Apart from better equipment, security forces, particularly paramilitary forces, have been told that their personnel should get the “best available quality” food.

    The commanding officers have been asked to check and taste the food before it is served to soldiers. Recently, Border Security Force constable Tej Bahadur posted a video on social media that showed poor quality food given to soldiers.

    Auto giant to produce bullet-proof vehicles for police and paramilitary forces
    CHENNAI: City-based auto giant, Ashok Leyland, largest supplier of logistic vehicles to defence-stallion in the world, is making its foray into manufacturing bullet-proof armored vehicles for the police and paramilitary forces.

    A top official of the company told Express that the auto giant has already bagged orders from Punjab and Jammu & Kashmir police. Talks are also in the final-stage to supply bullet-proof vehicles to paramilitary forces for use in naxal-affected areas.

    Revealing the company’s plans of expanding their defence business, Amandeep Singh, Head (Defence), said on the sidelines of a global conference - 2017 ‘Conquer New Frontiers’, that J&K police had asked for seven vehicles and Punjab placed orders for 11. Production of the vehicles had started in the Hosur plant.

    He said from 2014 when the Union government floated ‘Make in India’ programme, the company had won 19 tenders out of a total 25. “Earlier, we were manufacturing only 4x4 Stallion vehicles. Now, the company has moved to gun towers, missile carriers, high mobility vehicles and ammunition carriers. About 30 per cent of defence budget is potentially available for Indian companies. The company hopes to indigenously develop 50 per cent of current imports. In the last one year, defence business of the company had increased by 60 per cent and in the next five years we see a six-fold increase,” Singh said.

    The company had also scaled-up the operations of proto plant in Ennore. Only a couple of days back, Indian army had placed orders for developing two prototype Mine Protective Vehicles (MPV), being designed and developed at proto shop in Ennore in collaboration with Vehicle Factory at Jabalpur. “Once, the army successfully tests the vehicle, bulk manufacturing will be carried out in Hosur plant,” he said.

    On international collaborations, Singh said “We collaborate depending upon the programmes. Asked by Indian army, we have an arrangement with US-based Lockheed Martin. For truck driving simulators that ply on challenging terrains, we have joined hands with Swedish SAAB.”

    Ashok Leyland is also emerging as a strong player in upgrading the BMP tanks, amphibious tracked infantry fighting vehicles. The current fleet is completely Russian made and pretty old. “The engineers are evaluating the progress of BMP tank performance that is fitted with high-power Neptune engine and an automatic transmission unit. Besides engine, the entire drive train is being upgraded, including gear box, armament etc. The idea is to reduce the dependency on Russia for spare parts,” Singh said.

    India starts local manufacturing of deadly Israeli Guns used in Surgical Strikes by the Army
    When the Indian Army Special Forces went inside Pakistan-occupied Kashmir to carry out the famous surgical strikes last September, they used the deadly made-in-Israel Tavor-21 and Galil assault rifles to eliminate the terrorists and Pakistan Army troops supporting them.

    However, next time if they carry out similar operations, they may be equipped with the same weapons which could be made in India as Indian firm Punj Llyod and Israeli Weapons Industry have signed a joint venture to produce these rifles under a new joint venture facility at Malanpur near here.

    "We are making the whole range of IWI weapon systems at the facility here including the Tavor-21 and Galil assault rifles along with the Negev Light Machine Guns, Galil sniper rifles and the X-95 close quarter carbine rifles here. We would be offering all the types of weapons required by the armed forces," Ashok Wadhawan, in-charge of Punj Llyod's defence manufacturing business told Mail Today.

    The new joint venture has been named as PunjLlyod Raksha Systems (PRS). Showcasing the capabilities at the facility, he said, "all the guns to be supplied to Indian forces under existing orders. For the future tenders, they will be fully made in India." For the creation of the new facility, IWI has helped in setting up machines in the plant which is exactly the same as they have in their facility near Tel Aviv.


    MANUFACTURING FACILITY TO HAVE FIRING RANGE

    The manufacturing facility will also have testing and firing range in the next few weeks where the weapons could be tested before they are dispatched for supply.

    Asked about the motivation behind coming up with an assault rifle manufacturing facility, Punj Llyod group Chairman Atul Punj told Mail Today, "We wanted to produce something that is already proven and can be of use to the armed forces straightaway. With the security situation around us, I think there is also a requirement for such world class weapons in the country."

    He said his company was fully committed towards making products under Prime Minister's pet project Make in India under the defence sector and would be looking to enhance the firepower of the forces.

    The facility is also coming up at a time when along with the Army, the IAF and the Navy are also looking to equip themselves with assault rifles for their special forces and the normal ground troops both.


    IAF LOOKING TO PROCURE OVER 1.85 LAKH ASSAULT RIFLES?

    However, the Army would be the biggest potential customer for the weapons produced by the facility as the force is looking to procure more than 1.85 lakh assault rifles to replace the existing inventory of indigenous INSAS rifles which have not proven to be effective in the past.

    The Army is also looking to acquire over 3,500 sniper rifles for the Ghatak platoons of its infantry battalions and special forces while it has also issued a new tender for acquiring 44,837 close quarter carbines for dealing with anti-terrorist operations.

    Indian Air Force's Garud Special Forces and Marine Commandos of the Navy are already using the Tavor and Negev rifles and are too looking for more weapons.

    Company officials say the new facility would also help the Israelis in cutting down their production cost and may also help in bringing down the cost of these weapons for Indian forces as well.

    Punj Llyod officials said they are also in the race for supplying the upgraded version of the Soviet-era Zu-23 air defence guns and upgunning of the 130 mm Russian artillery guns to the latest 145 mm 45 calibre standard.
