    Yes, I was looking forward to platforms that could be modified to use as TEL for our missile inventory.
    i was very much looking forward to Tata or Ashok leyland modifying there 8x8s to fit the role tatras are currently doing now in IA.

    What In your opinion is the reason for this Not happening sir? I'm sure if the Army gave the nod, Tata or AL could easily design TEL and trucks for hauling radars based on 8x8 or 10x10s..

    BEML seems to produce these two models under lisence, It seems TATA, Ashok & Layland make better engines, Though i don`t have exact specs of their engine origin or their spec sheet ..

    @NeXoft007 & @Krusty , Continue debate here ..

    Tata has good relationship with Cummins. If we're talking license production, they can help with their extensive portfolio.

    Compare to Scania FAT, clearly the inspiration behind IA requirements:

    [​IMG]

    http://www.military-today.com/trucks/saab_scania_sbat_111s.htm

    The Saab-Scania SBAT 111S general utility truck (6x6) was developed alongside the SBA 111 light truck (4x4) in the late 1960s in order to meet a Swedish Army requirement. The two vehicles were designed to be the main tactical trucks of the Swedish armed forces. The first prototypes were completed in 1971. Sweden ordered a total of 2 000 4x4 and 6x6 vehicles in 1974. Deliveries commenced in 1976 and were completed in 1979. Later follow-on orders were made. Over 2 500 trucks of both configuration were delivered to Sweden's Army, Navy and Air Force. In 1986 India ordered 660 of these trucks as artillery tractors to tow Bofors FH-77B field howitzers. Trucks produced for the Indian Army were slightly modified in order to meet local requirements. Production of the SBAT 111S ceased in 1989. Currently these trucks are being gradually phased-out from the Swedish armed forces.

    Layout of the SBAT 111S is almost identical to the SBA 111 light utility truck, except engine and configuration. It has an extra axle and larger cargo area. 90% of the components are interchangeable between both vehicles. The SBAT 111S has a maximum payload capacity of 9 t on road and 6 t off road. The baseline troop/cargo carrier is referred as Tgb 40. It has drop sides and drop tailgate. Its cargo area is covered with bows and tarpaulin. The SBAT 111S can also tow trailers or artillery pieces with a maximum weight of 12 t. There is a resupply version fitted with hydraulic crane. This truck is used for ammunition resupply for the 155-mm Bofors FH-77A howitzer and 120-mm KARIN towed coastal defense gun. There is also an artillery tractor version, which tows both of these guns. It has an additional fully-enclosed cabin for the gun crew of 10 and a small hydraulic crane at the rear. The SBAT 111S is also used to carry Giraffe radar system, which is used in conjunction with the Bofors RBS 70 and RBS 90 surface-to-air missiles. This vehicle has four stabilizer jacks which are lowered when the radar arm is elevated.

    The forward control cab accommodates driver and two passengers. There is a roof hatch for observation. A machine gun can be also fitted on top of the roof.

    This military truck is powered by a Scania DS11LB27 11-liter turbocharged diesel engine, developing 296 hp. It is a turbocharged and more powerful version of the engine, used on the SBA 111. Truck is fitted with a self-recovery winch as standard. Vehicle is also fitted with cold weather equipment, such as an engine heater, battery heater, fuel pre-heater and so on.​

    Those TATA trucks aren't FATs, they are logistics vehicles.
