DRDO pitches case to develop next-gen infantry combat vehicle for Army


According to a top official, the Army is conceiving the project under the strategic partnership route, in which the Indian vendors can collaborate with foreign companies. But the DRDO is pitching to get it done through its Combat Vehicles Research and Development Establishment, the main laboratory involved in the development of armoured fighting vehicles. DRDO believes that the CVRDE has the core competency in developing the required technology. Notably, the CVRDE, which is based at Avadi in Chennai, is the developer of India's indigenous Arjun tank.


Ya ya why not...we just saw what happened to Kestrel...

@porky_kicker the missile we saw in test of akash ng was pure cylinderical with radome nose cone , but a earlier picture sgared in wing tunnel testing is not proper cylinder ,it was quite different , so is it possible what we were thinking of as akash ng was actually a xrsam missile , and the fin position led us to believe that it was xrsam ??

Observe the nose cone it Doesn't look like akash ng exactly
That's a wind tunnel test model. The test model would always differ a bit from the actual one.
