    Yes, this is the Sherpa "Light" which has been seen in service with the NSG earlier:

    Each NSG hub has 2x Sherpa "Light" and 1x Sherpa 2 ladder assualt platforms:

    This particular vehicle does appear to be brand new though (steps covered in protective wrap), maybe it's on its way to the NSG or airport?

    Note spare tyre placement on this Gypsy, similar to Casspir - so definitely the tyre placement on Tata LSV is a IA requirement

    Maybe army is waiting for Indian made ATV.

    Mahindra has just started a plant in US for ATVs.

    Why buy foreign maal, when desi maal is just a few years away.

    If not now atleast by next decade ATV can be used for border patrol, for quicker response times.

    And more over ATVs have a lot of potential in agri and hilly areas with in India. So there is a case for dual use of this technology.
