    Mahindra might have a better product, but Tata has taken a headstart in integrating multiple systems. They are already proposing a VSHORADS version mounted with Igla-S, and have used Tata SED's involvement with various Indian labs to provide specialty vehicles.

    And then there is some friendly competition to the Tata product from Land Rover defender.

    ^^ All of them pale in comparison to this bad boy. The pinnacle of British engineering and something that will last till the end of time.

    It was kinda past issue, Power assisted steering was a luxury at that times, the narrow wheel base with ultra light engine and chassy and a high reliable engine (obviously petrol) get to its favour, roads were narrow and Gypsy was the most handy among other available option (including steering control for a UV).

    Still till date you would hardly see a Gypsy in a garage for mechanical issue.

    Do not know for military purpose. But Gypsy is the best thing I ever drove on Indian roads. Nothing to worry about once you are behind its wheel.

    Gypsy ride quality is crap when driving on a half decent road.

    It passed for general purpose and utility vehicle meant only for black top roads. Otherwise it is so short of power and strength. It can never be a weapon plateform, a load bearer or desrt / mountain vehicle. Third class third world Mahindra Commander fears better in comparision for militray purposes though absolutely uneconomical and unweildy first WW technology like "Gatoos".
