Good effort by Tata. However 8x8 is not new to India, the Military has been using them extensively for decades, and their truck of choice is the Tatra one (one of the best and classic designs in the world) that is assembled by BEML.

As compared to the TATA vehicle, the M&M AXE still looks more butch, i bet if you saw one in your RVM tailgating you car it would scare the **** out of you.

As mentioned by Parm the TATA vehicle does seem inspired by the Mercedes G Wagon.
