    6 stupendous made-in-India military vehicles

    There’s a charm about the Military, it’s men and their paraphernalia, which is beyond explanation. Among their entire impedimenta, the military vehicles are one big thing that sets them a class apart. These machines are made to perform some heavy-duty tasks, and that’s what makes them so stupendous.

    Therefore, we bring you a list of six military vehicles that are made-in-India.

    Ashok Leyland Mine Protected Vehicle: The MPVs are specifically built to protect its occupants from land mines. This MPV can accommodate 10 personnel excluding the driver and one front passenger. It is powered by the Neptune range of inline 6 cylinder turbo diesel engines, available in two states of tune – 230 Bhp-800 Nm and 360 Bhp-1400 Nm

    Mahindra Axe: Although, it is not yet a part of the Indian Military’s garage, the Axe is designed for both combat and non-combat purposes. Under the hood, a 2.7 liter-5 cylinder turbo diesel engine from Mercedes Benz puts out 172 Bhp and 340 Nm. A 5 speed manual gearbox and 4-wheel drive transfer case are offered

    We need to press BP vehicles into J&K ASAP... incident like what happened today can be avoided if troops are transported in personnel carriers instead of tin cans..
