    its a old and a forgotten project.
    this was completed 5 yrs ago.
    this was even rejected by army also.
    its cross version of BMP-II & M113.
    This was built at Thiruchy OFB.

    Even at that stage it was a million times better than of BMP-2..

    The Vehicle was design as per Army needs, And only thing imported was the engine and transmission, rest was originate from India..

    What abhya was in 2009 now BMP-2 is becoming with upgrades but minus the Armour protection and electronic so does firepower..
