What is Quick Reaction Fighting Vehicle?
Quick Reaction Fighting Vehicles are bulletproof vehicles used in times of war to move troops from one place to another safely. Bullets have no effect on these vehicles, as well as they protect against land mines. Soldiers sitting inside these vehicles can also be protected from grenade blasts.
Let us tell you that Tata Motors is delivering quick reaction fighting vehicles manufactured in India to many countries. Soldiers joining peacekeeping missions from India also use these vehicles. These quick reaction vehicles come with a 4X4 drivetrain capability which allows them to traverse rough terrains and climbs with ease.
Tata Quick Reaction Fighting Vehicles come with Level-4 Blast Protection. Such vehicles are also capable of withstanding an explosive blast of 14 to 21 kg. These vehicles can carry 14 soldiers including the driver. Machine guns can also be mounted on top of these vehicles if needed in a war zone.
Equipped with powerful engine
The Tata Quick Reaction Fighting vehicles are powered by a powerful diesel engine that generates a maximum power of 240 Bhp. These vehicles can carry a maximum load of 2 tonnes. All-terrain tyres have been installed in them to run on all types of roads.
Let us tell you that recently the Indian Army has inducted Made-in-India Infantry Combat Vehicles to monitor the border in Ladakh. These vehicles have been inducted to enhance the activities of the army along the Ladakh border and to accelerate the delivery of aid. These vehicles have been jointly developed by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and the Tata Group.
The Central Government has approved a project worth Rs 50,000 crore to supply India-made vehicles to the Army. At present, the dependence of the Indian Army for combat vehicles is more on vehicles made in Russia and America. However, now under the Made-in-India campaign, many companies of the country are coming forward to meet the requirement of the army.
At present, companies like Tata, Mahindra & Mahindra, Bharat Forge, Kalyani and Larsen & Toubro are making light and heavy weight combat vehicles for the army.
