    Defining a new level of protected mobility during indoor combat, Tata Motors showcased its ‘Nano’ for the defence forces, the MBPV. While the design may not be captivating, it is quite functional. Besides being bulletproof, all sides including the floor have angles to deflect bullets and roll-off grenades. The electric-powered vehicle can last up to six hours in an intermittent operation with a top speed of 20km/h, making it silent yet agile. With maximum payload capacity of 200kg it can carry two personnel with their equipment. The pivot turning and gradeability of 20 degrees enables it to go over slopes and climb stairs as well.

    With a gross weight of 1,100kg, it has good all-round visibility and firing ports all around. It will be tested by the elite commando forces before it’s put into operation. It has been jointly developed by Tata and VRDE-DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation).

    Undoubtedly, the MBPV is one of the most practical yet effective anti-terrorist vehicles and Tata Motors plans to add to its array of vehicles for the defence services.

    What is the aim that this vehicle is to achieve?

    Can it take a hit from an RPG?

    If it can, then maybe closing in with terrorists holed up in a Kashmiri house makes sense.

    Ray Sir, I wonder how many tanks in service these days can take a hit from RPG.

    This vehicle will be useful in hostage crises and COIN in urban areas.

    It's supposed to be used for assaulting buildings... But I think it will simply trap the soldiers/policemen inside that curious thing once inside the building. Terrorists will be waiting for the doors of that thing to open while hidden in dividers, doors, corners...

    The Vehicle is deigned for hostage rescue and casulity evacuation in places like inside TAJ..

    It cannot climb stares but it can fit in a elevator and move and fire and armored in tight hotel spaces ..



    This is not a first attempt but a second in India..

    The vehicle is made on request by NSG and counter terror agency..

    Urban warfare has a great use for such stuff mate. Singapore also has tiny tank like armored vehicles and since Singapore is entirely an urbanized country, this sort of stuff would come in handy.

    One does not use tanks in COIN.

    Yet, what is the use of a vehicle that cannot take an RPG shot?

    Terrorists in Kashmir use it extensively.

    One would rather stay with the current drill (manpower intensive using cover and fire and move) than venture with a vehicle that will blow up when one is closing in.

    Its not a tank..

    BMP-1/2 cannot take RPG rounds either..

    The armored vehicle for Kashmir CT terror operation is not this one, this does not suit the task but a different IFV..

    No, Unless it is up-armored by SLAT Armour and Light ERA..

    Though modern RPGs can take on Front Armour of a MBT like T-72M1..
