Tried and tested over time, the commercial operators will vouch for reliability and ruggedness offered in Force Motors vehicles. This time around, Force Motors, the Pune-based company has bagged the order for supply of Light Strike Vehicles (LSV) to the Indian Army. Reports claim that the company has been working on the LCV development for over two years now and has been tested in extreme conditions with temperatures ranging between -30 to 50 degrees.
Speed and reliability being the primary focus, the LCV is offered with all-wheel drive and differential locks for all wheels. Engine and transmission options will be carried forward from the existing lineup. For obvious reasons, the vehicle has been designed for easy ingress and egress. Moreover, the vehicle can be quickly airlifted and deployed as advanced fast strike vehicle. It sits on run flat tyres and has provisions to mount machine guns and rocket launchers.
Speaking on the occasion, Force Motors spokesperson said, “We are very happy that the Indian Army has reposed trust in the fully indigenous Light Strike Vehicle developed by our research and development team. This is a small but significant step in creating fully indigenous specialist vehicles for the Armed Forces - a truly 'Make in India' initiative.”
