    Just a couple of days back, we reported about the Tata Safari Storme GS800 that is being showcased at the Defence Expo 2012, New Delhi. Today, we bring to you details about the arch rival Mahindra’s take on the armoured vehicle for Indian Army. Mahindra has showcased the Rakshak Plus- A modified Scorpio that offers Level-3 protection at the DEFEXPO.

    The Rakshak, unlike the Storme, is for immediate retaliation during a terrorist attack. The Rakshak Plus has a 600kg of payload capacity and also comes with a PTZ surveillance camera. This camera offers a 3600view with a zooming capacity of 500 meters.

    IMO Mahindra Marksman would be a good choice for its agility and size.

    A good choice- well protected, good horsepower, air mobile (in C-130Js crucially) able to carry 10 assualters inside and 6-8 on the outside= perfect assualt vehicle.
