Default Details about Tata Motors' Range of Defence Vehicles

Tata Motors showcased a new concept, the Micro Bullet-Proof Vehicle (MBPV) at DEFEXPO India 2012. It is a highly mobile combat vehicle for indoor combat inside airports, railway stations and other such infrastructure.

Besides, Tata Motors launched four other defence vehicles – the Tata 12x12 Prahaar Missile Carrier, the Tata Light Armoured Vehicle, the Tata Mobile Bunker and the Tata 6x6 7kl Refueler and displayed a range of other concept vehicles.


Tata Micro Bullet-Proof Vehicle (MBPV):

The Tata Micro Bullet-Proof Vehicle (MBPV) is a project that is being jointly developed by VRDE-DRDO and Tata Motors, for providing the country’s elite commando forces (NSG, Marine Commandos, Para Battalions & Force One) with a protected mobility solution that assists them during indoor combat against insurgents. The need for this kind of a solution has been felt desperately by commando units, who face multiple hostage situations; wherein terrorists have been holed up inside confined premises, houses, hotels, malls and airports.

The MBPV has been designed keeping indoor combat in mind, with special features like bullet resistant panels for protection, compact dimensions, with 4-wheel assisted turning for easy movement within indoor confines and high power-to-weight ratio for fast & agile movement, during combat. Firing ports have also been incorporated for retaliatory action. Moreover, it has an added capability of climbing stairs as well.

Thanks Jalsa,

Any pics of the Xenon Recce vehicle?

Not sure how it's possible for an armoured Safari with a ton more to lug around but still have more or less the same top speed as the civilian version.

Cheers,
Adi

Hi Adi

Actually the 3000 Kg is the gross weight of the vehicle. The payload is 825kg. Therefore the unladen weight is 2175Kg.. This is very close to the civilian vehicle. I suppose there wouldn't be much of differences between the civilian version and this since this primarily meant for peace time ferrying of officers
And the armoured vehicle has a much smaller payload of 350+kg and the gross weight is 3300kg, about 10% more than the GS 800.. That again should be the reason for the 150kmph speed compared to the 160kmph of the 3000kg Gross GS800

Jalsa777, nice update on all the products from Tata Motors that were showcased in the recently concluded Defense Exhibition at the Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
i happened to be present at the exhibition and did take note of all these vehicles.
Many of your pictures seem to be edited, any particular reason for that?
Tata Motors is looking forward to concentrate on the multi axle vehicles for the Indian Defense. their 6*6 vehicle is fully proven in terms of its acceptance to the Indian Army and very soon the 8*8 too is going through the trials.
These vehicles are to compete with the Tatra vehicles we all hear about these days in the news channels.
Kudos to Tata Motors for this indeginisation effort.

Thumbs up Re: Details about Tata Motors' Range of Defence Vehicles

Very nice to see such vehicles from TATA. It is the technology that is used in these vehicles that comes later into passenger cars.
Most of the Major technologies, Like 4X4, GPS Navigation System and many others have been derived from these vehicles.
Is TATA or any other Automotive giant in the process of making an INDIAN HUMMER. Would love to see one with a wide body, 4X4 and the strong and sturdy look of the Hummer.

I doubt the Tata 6x6 is already in IA - Logistics carriers alone.
No multi axles are inducted but for few Stallion 6x6.

News reports once again reminds us that the vehicles are not chosen on merit. Indian manufacturers are intentionally kept away to favor some foreign vendors. More transparency need to be braught to Defence procurements. I am not sure whether Tata vehicles are superior to Tatra ones, nevertheless, GOI should prefer Indigenous products over imports.
Tata introduced these products at the right time, and showed its design skills and demonstrated, they could make any vehicle the defense needs. hats off to them, now it is up to the bureaucrats.
