Indian Army's 'Future Soldier Program' will make our soldiers the most feared on the planet
Please ID this truck and truck based system:
Its a Ukrainian truck..
The train carries Indian, Ukrainian and Russian and as well as czech republic trucks of just one unit, Really a logistic nightmare ..
I read somewhere that Ashok Leyland will replace 2000 old Army trucks,is it true?
But what is the point of transporting a truck on a train(understand the logic of transporting tanks and APC using trains as it is n times economical)????
What does India use as its standard light utility vehicle?
We are using stallions all are from A&L ..
Recently A&L replacing heavy duty artillery tractors and ambulances, It previously won the contract to upgrade grads..
They could have avoided the curvy sheet metal. How are the army guys going to keep it pretty in the field? I like the TATA FAT
Maruti's Gypsy on its way out; Tata Safari to be new Army vehicle
NEW DELHI: The Army will replace its iconicMaruti Gypsy fleet with a new range of SUVs, having selected the Tata Safari Storme for an initial order of close to 3,200 vehicles, which could increase 10-fold in the coming years.
While an official announcement is yet to be made, ET has learnt that Tata Motorsbeat off the Mahindra Group, which fielded its Scorpio SUV for thecompetition that kicked off in 2013. Both locally developed SUVs passed rigorous technical trials by the army, which tested the vehicles in all conditions – from high-altitude, snow-bound regions to deserts and marshy land.
However, the Tata Group appears to have presented a better financial deal to the army, which has sought to replace its fleet of Gypsyvehicles that are used extensively at the battalion level to transport troops and officers.
The army has over 30,000 Maruti Gypsyvehicles in service and willprogressively replace them starting next year. “The initial order is for 3,198 new SUVs but the total number is likely to go much beyond that. The army prefers a single model across its units and formations as it is easier on logistics,” an official involved in the process told ET.
While the Gypsy has been an army favourite for its ability to navigate tough terrain, the need was felt for a new SUV with additional safety features and more power that runs on diesel, a fuel that’s more readily available, given its large fleet of trucks and heavy-duty vehicles.
Once signed, this will be the second major order for Tata Motors this year, having bagged a Rs 1,300 crore deal in January to supply high-mobility military trucks for the army. The 6x6 high-mobility vehicles can be used for various purposes – from transporting men and material to being the platform for multi-barrel rocket launchers and surface-to-air missile systems.

I can't see the Safari being as versatile as the gypsy. Do they plan to use these in field conditions? Would love to see battlefield customisation of this one by the Army.
BTW, why did the Army reject the Mahindra Axe? Did it reject only the current model or is it rejected for good?
I was hoping to see it in Indian service.
Wait....is this what i am looking for?
It says Tata Xenon. Is it customized Tata Safari?
