We are talking about the participation of “Rosoboronexport” in the Indian tender for the supply of light tanks. In addition to technology transfer, Russia will even offer the localization of the production of individual blocks and units.
Mikheev noted that the Sprut-SDM1 is the only vehicle in its class with the firepower of a main battle tank. In addition, the light tank can cross water obstacles, fire on the water, and perform missions in high altitude conditions. It is armed with a 125mm smoothbore cannon and can use the ammunition included in the Indian T-72M1 and T-90S ammunition. In addition, the tank received a guided weapon system that allows it to hit targets with a missile at a range of up to five kilometers.
