Hain ji ? this was the requirement for the army itself, be happy that we inducted this thing .
It has replaced maruti gypsy , and its a fairy new induction plus read about raid on chachro to get a clear understanding why this vehicles are most needed
Please elaborate what do you mean by proper vehicle?
He probably means a dedicated LSV design instead of conversion from civilian vehicle (which incidentally both the Force model & Gypsy were).The vehicles are not armoured because it is supposed to be swift and not clunky
Something like Polaris DAGOR probably.
People tend to think the Force (or even Thar) is a great offroad vehicle chassis...and from a civilian perspective they are, but even a decades-old platform developed for military requirement (like Humvee) tends to leave these models in the dust.
I'll count my blessings though...I'd rather take the Force model than a Gypsy
But quite shameful that even as recently as 2020 IA was still taking deliveries of Gypsy. The production line for this car (which is no longer sold in passenger market) is still active purely because of IA orders.
