BAE Systems and Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T) have announced a collaboration to bring the BvS10 all-terrain vehicle to India.

This is part of India’s “Make in India” initiative, with the vehicle set to participate in the Indian Army’s trials this September.

The partnership includes a licensing and manufacturing agreement, aiming to introduce the BvS10 for the Articulated All-Terrain Vehicle (AATV) programme tailored for the Indian Armed Forces.

As per this agreement, L&T will serve as the primary entity for the Indian market. This venture receives backing from BAE Systems Hägglunds, the original Swedish producers of the BvS10.

The two corporations have fine-tuned the BvS10 to suit the unique requirements of the Indian Armed Forces, rebranding this variant as the BvS10-Sindhu. As part of the AATV initiative, vehicles are set to be dispatched from L&T’s Armoured Systems Complex, complemented with integrated logistic support.

Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, managing director of BAE Systems Hägglunds, highlighted the vehicle’s features, stating, “Our BvS10 all-terrain vehicle will demonstrate the critical capabilities the Indian Army needs when it participates in the trials later this month. Unsurpassed mobility, flexibility and the ability to work in extreme climatic conditions are at the core of the BvS10 design.”

He also emphasised the potential of their collaboration with L&T to penetrate the Indo-Pacific market.

I don’t know why we bother with India. (before the idiots play the far right racist card my parents came from India, so I have more of an understanding how the Indian mind works ) and I don’t trust them as far as i can pee ,why? because Indians are two faced, and whilst they are all smiles to your face (with nodding heads) , they have no problem stabbing you in the back. We have seen just that with how at the recent G20 where India with the chair led the pro Russia camp to not denounce Moscow’s invasion of… Read more »

Totally agree. They only want the technology. Turn against you like the Chinese. Vipers with two tongues.

Its just business in politics. The UK does the same. Think the joint program on the destroyer, boxer or the 138 f35s we were going to buy and only half that has been guaranteed. So many other examples also.

I know a Sri Lankan who thinks Indians are amateurs compared to the duplicitous nature of Lankans.

India is a very young democracy. They need to get rid of Modi. His Hindu Nationalism will take the country in the same direction as 1930s Germany.

The Indians are a bit to big to ignore but they do like playing countries off each other while making sure they get what they want.
India first applies in all aspects. The amount of comments in any comment section that always goes into the British owe us loads. Every is against us just like when they sided with Pakistan. Everyone hates India except Russia and so on.
I like to put a wind up comment on Indian channel comments. They bite like an angry crocodile

I wonder if it will be considered for a Brimstone platform.

India may well be a significant counter balancing factor to China both on the subcontinent and Indian Ocean. They’ve got a foot in both camps with the West and BRICS and military sourcing from both sides with the West maybe getting the edge now. Like with Saudi Arabia, I’m more worried about West tech getting copied by the China and Russia as their relations seem to get more involved with them both. Haven’t been to India myself, but I know my father loved the place, ex Indian Army, loved his soldiers, and some family have visited there, and I’ve worked… Read more »
