Noob question. Can we use engines for tanks and IFV, in heavy military trucks?
Ashok Leyland already uses the Neptune series of in house designed engines in it's Super Stallion series. The FAT meant for Dhanush and already in service uses this Neptune engine.

Tata uses Cummins engines in its 6 by 6 ,8x8 , 10x10 and 12x12 HMV.

Yep. INS Vikrant and INS Vikramaditya with their respective battle groups.

INS Chakra leading these two carriers. It will be a sight to watch .
Oh right forgot we are missing a N-attack sub for this CBG, possiblity of another lease perhaps.

Vikrant is one hell of a sexy ship, a catobar version of her would be mouth watering

Isn't LM2500 was licenced produced by L&T in past? has HAL reversed engineered it ?

We should be standardizing LM2500 engines across all our Naval platforms before electric propulsion takes over.

Stretched CATOBAR Vikrant with further design improvements and Indian designed aviation complex is what should be the Vishal. If agreements are signed now then the nuclear reactor can be made with Russian or French assistance. Even if the reactor is not as great as the US ones where it is fueled for the life of the ship, in our case it will serve the purpose.

Yes, but Sintex Water tank is still present on the top of MF-STAR.
