Understand the difference between IPMV and WhAP in terms of role and maybe you'd not feel so frustrated. IPMV has windows and no amphibious capability because its simply meant to do the job of a Protected Mobility Platform for the QRTs of Light Infantry, same as Mahindra ALSV. Albeit at a higher level of protection. Meanwhile, WhAP is a proper replacement for BRDM in Recce and Support Battalions of Indian Mechanized Forces.If they conduct the trials now, I guess its just Kestral/whap/ipmv/whatever new f*cking name they invent for it v/s no competition. Who knows, maybe the "others" can make better models as whap has set a benchmark upon which they can improve.
Whatever happens, my only wish is that they get a properly protected vehicle without those stupid windows and all. Its like they are suggesting to our enemies to aim right for those windows if they want to kill the infantrymen inside.
