    Imho, This vehicle is tailored as per need of Indian Army and should have variants like >>

    1. General purpose vehicle
    2. Ambulance
    3. Fast attack vehicle
    4. Armored vehicle

    Just like Dhruv ..

    Indeed looks like a Jonga on steroids ..

    As this vehicle is completely design by Indian Army, There are no specs ever shown except ' power-to-weight ratio 40:1 ' it does show it has a powerful engine, Indian army EME design and manufactured this vehicle ..

    Hope some Pvt corp takes the responsibility to make serial production ..

    Dont know what is already there... Would love to see massive run-flat tyres and hydro-pneumatic suspension for extreme off-roading!

    I never saw red number plate in Army ..

    But the test vehicles in India do have red plates, Like this Safari for Army on trails ..

    This looks more like an enclosed version of Mahindra Axe.

    Axe is their LSV, for the LSV program.

    This new one could be their LAMV requirement, if it is Mahindra.

    It has the stereotypical Mahindra claw grill.

    Where and when was this pic taken ? Seeing the steering on the dashboard in the left side, this could be India, red plate probably means its a test/demo vehicle (at least commercial vehicles do). Nothing concrete shows on google image search when I search using this pic.
