    BANGALORE (PTI): US-based vehicle-maker Polaris Industries on Friday said it has received its first order from the Indian Army.

    "We have already received our first order from the Indian Army," Polaris India Managing Director Pankaj Dubey told reporters.

    He, however, declined to throw more light on the deal with the Army. Polaris military vehicles would strengthen the security in border areas.

    "Polaris Light Tactical Vehicles would help achieve quick movement in anti-insurgency and anti-terrorist operations," he said.

    For Indian Army!!

    What numbers? When and where?
    Can any one make investments and start a production line for 500 vehicles ? What after that?

    Let us not be unnecessarily fools. Inspite of requirement of thousand of aircrafts in civil aviation we have not done anything ? Give it to BEML. They will import parts and assemble these vehicles after charging hepty profits for themselves.

    Kunal is the vehicle mentioned by you an all terrain vehicle or an all surface vehicle? if it could be fixed with a pair of wings maybe it would be called the all purpose vehicle. :fear:

    The vehicle is actually an All Terrain Vehicle. Floats on water and can travel on ground. In fact Mumbai special Forces bought a few dozen of them to patrol the sea coast.

    blackwater- Is it because the police do not want to use because it is not useful / not suitable or not working?
