Amandeep Singh, Head - Defence, Ashok Leyland, said that for over three decades, Ashok Leyland
has been a vital part of the country's Defence
forces through its mobility solutions. As part of the company's strategy to enhance its contribution to the Defence
Forces and to expand its business scope within its focus area of 'Solutions for Mobility on Land', the company has been working on Tracked Vehicles.
With this win, the company marks yet another milestone where it will start working on the Tracked Vehicles
that soldiers use.
"We see huge potential in repowering and upgrading of existing BMPs/Tanks of the Indian Army.
We have the expertise to develop indigenous solutions for power packs and running gear for upgrade of existing lCVs as well as for the new FICVs. We are proud that we are the only vehicle manufacturer in India having indigenously designed, developed and manufactured power packs beyond 350hp. The tracked combat vehicle
opportunity also exists in several other countries which use Russian made combat vehicles."
