    Among the 3 vehicles shown recently, Dragun with its unmanned 100 mm + 30 mm turret is front-engined. The Derivatsiya, with its "57 mm" unmanned turret, and the robot, with an Epokha turret, are rear-engined.

    India to procure 149 Russia-licensed BMP-2 IFV
    30 October 2015 SPUTNIK, BORIS EGOROV, RIR

    The Indian Defence Ministry on Thursday approved the acquisition of 149 BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles to be built in the country under license from Russia, The Times of India reported.

    The decision, adopted by the ministry's Defence Acquisitions Council (DAC), comes shortly before Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar departs on visit to Russia on Friday, the newspaper said.

    India is set to spend over $140 million to acquire new army vehicles, according to the newspaper.

    A potential contract for 149 BMP-2 stipulates the licensed assembly of military vehicles directly in India at the facilities of one of the plants of the Ordnance Factory Board, a state holding company for the production of ammunition, weapons and vehicles.

    The details of the contract are due to be discussed during Parrikar's visit to Moscow, the media outlet reported, citing an Indian military source.

    According to the IHS Jane’s defense journal, the Indian Army operates 1,000-1,200 license-built BMP-2/2K infantry combat vehicles.
