I think so, they have aircraft carrier and a strong navy and air force, I think they should develop their army and gain more neccesary weapons and equipment, have they alot of armoured tanks? Will they grow their army?

    Indian program of the perspective tank FRCV

    Twenty-four months after the Indian Army issued a request for information (RFI) on the Future Ready Combat Vehicle (FRCV) project, it had to reconsider its excessively high demands and send a second request to a less ambitious but more accessible family of heavy Tom Waldwin, an expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), wrote in his article "India's not-quite-ready Future Ready Combat Vehicle".

    I am not surprised. India needs to give up on its made in India dream they are just wasting money and time. It would be cheaper and more productive to continue buying Russian equipment and doing joint ventures they could still produce ammo and small arms and even have maintenance centres for Russian equipment and also get production rights but as for designing their own just forget it bite the bullet and move on.

    Whats with the opinion buddy? Still think India is banana republic? Come on, they reached mars. they built the cheapest car in the world, and pretty decent at that. They manage to build some interesting things. They are getting bullet trains from Japan with a lot of offset. Why can't they make in India weapons?

    Probably because for self defence you want the best you can afford, but if you demand to make them yourself you are paying top dollar for the privilege.

    If Russia imposed sanctions all the time on India then a secure source for parts makes sense, but there is no such history with Russia.

    India is better off having a made in India drive for things that would be useful for the average indian and for India as a whole...

    Ready for the first ten 155-mm self-propelled howitzers K9 Vajra-T for the Indian Army

    According to Indian sources, the first ten 155-mm / 52 self-propelled howitzers K9 Vajra-T, which are a "localized" variant of the well-known South Korean self-propelled gun, are prepared for the transfer of the Indian army to the Indian private group Larsen & Toubro (L & T) in Hazira (Gujarat) howitzer K9 Thunder. In fact, these ten systems were completely manufactured in South Korea by the Hanwha Techwin division of the South Korean corporation Hanwha, and at the L & T plant in Hazira, only their retrofitting was made.


    The first 155 mm self-propelled howitzer K9 Vajra-T (K9 Thunder) prepared by the Indian Army for the Indian Private Group Larsen & Toubro (L & T) in Hazira, Gujarat, April 2018 (c) www.facebook.com/IndianDefenceFacts

    The expected delivery of these K9 Vajra-T systems, apparently, will complete the painful process of choosing the 155-mm / 52 self-propelled artillery system by the Indian army on a tracked chassis that lasted about 25 years. These systems are the first to be supplied under the contract of the Ministry of Defense of India with the Larsen & Toubro group at a cost of 4,600 crore rupees (about 710 million dollars) for the delivery of 100 SPH Κ9 (with an option for another 50) concluded in May 2017.

    According to the contract, the first ten SPH Κ9 of Vajra-T are delivered from South Korea from Hanwha Techwin within 11 months of the signing of the contract, and the remaining 90 must be collected at the Larsen & Toubro facility in Hazira with a localization level of 50 percent. Deliveries of all 100 systems must be completed within 42 months (that is, by November 2020). It is claimed that L & T will manufacture a hull, a tower, an ammunition supply mechanism, a fire control system, a missile velocity measuring system, a WMD, air conditioning and fire fighting system within this production. Also, the Indian industry will supply the BEL FOG navigation system, the night vision thermal imaging system and the STARS-V Mk 3 radio communication system (in general, 13 Indian-made systems will be used). Thus, the rocking parts of the howitzer will probably be imported entirely from South Korea, and the engine and transmission from Germany. 12.7-mm machine guns NSV (probably meaning "Cord") will be imported from Russia. In April 2017, the Larsen & Toubro group signed a corresponding agreement with Hanwha Techwin on the licensed production of ACS K9.

    In October 2015, 155-mm / 52 self-propelled howitzer K9 of South Korean company Samsung Techwin (since 2016 passed under the control of Hanwha Corporation as Hanwha Techwin) was declared by the Ministry of Defense of India to be the winner of the process of choosing the self-propelled artillery system of this caliber for the Indian army. Samsung Techwin has acted in this tender since 2012 in partnership with the Indian group Larsen & Toubro. At the same time, it was claimed that at the final test ranges in India in Q9, K9 surpassed the Russian Mash-SM self-propelled howitzer 155 mm in its export performance as its main competitor.

    In total, the Indian army plans in the future to acquire up to 1,500 155-mm / 52 self-propelled howitzers.

    India buys automatic rifles SIG Sauer SIG716

    According to Indian media, at the end of January 2019, Indian Defense Minister Nirmala Sithamaran approved 72400 SIG Sauer SIG716 automatic rifles (version SIG716 G2 Patrol) for the Indian army, patronized by NATO 7.62 x 51 mm. The procurement cost is estimated at about $ 72 million. The rifles will be purchased by the Ministry of Defense of India under the so-called accelerated procedure (Fast Track Procedure - FTP) with delivery within 12 months from the date of signing the contract (which is expected to be signed in mid-February) directly from the manufacturer - American company SIG Sauer Inc. (since 2000, the American SIG Sauer Inc. is a separate company from the German SIG Sauer GmbH, and the latter is no longer a manufacturer of small arms).
