"The first new product of the JV, the Mine Protected Vehicle India (MPVI), was successfully blast-tested and was launched at the DefExpo in February," according to the news release from Delhi-based Mahindra. "MPVI will be offered for induction in the police, paramilitary forces and the Army."
Mahindra and Mahindra holds a 74 percent share of Defence Land Systems India, based here, and BAE holds the remaining 24 percent equity.
The company will manufacture light armored vehicles, specialist military vehicles, mine-protected vehicles, artillery systems and other selected land system weapons; provide support; and perform upgrades at its manufacturing base at Faridabad on the outskirts of New Delhi.
"Defence Land Systems India will play an important role in the BAE Systems bids for a number of artillery programs, such as FH77 B05 for the towed 155mm 52cal howitzer requirement," according to the Mahindra release.
The inaugural board meeting here also appointed Khutub Hai, a retired Indian Army brigadier, as the managing director and CEO, and Arne Berglund as the deputy CEO.
