Kalyani Group achieves major breakthrough in protected vehicles segment

Within a short span of 3 years, the Kalyani Group with its proven engineering prowess and armoring capabilities have emerged to be a formidable leader in the protected vehicles segment. Their product profile boasts of vehicles like the Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC), Light Bullet Resistant Vehicle (LBRV), Ultra-Light Strike Vehicle (ULSV), Light Armoured Vehicle (LAM) and the Armoured Troop Carrier (ATC).
 
The Group’s flagship company Bharat Forge Ltd has recently bagged two major export orders in the protected vehicles segment. The first order of 10 numbers is for the 4x4 Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC), Class II (STANAG 4569) for the UN missions of Indian Army. A first of its kind in the country in its class and category, the APC is specially designed and built to meet specific requirements of forces operating in rough terrain and areas affected by mine blasts. Powered by ruggedised, 230 – 280 HP diesel engine and paired with a 4x2/4x4 manual and automatic transmissions, it provides blast protection against 14 kgs TNT blast under hull, 21 kgs TNT blast under any wheels. The best in its class of 4x4, it has a Kerb weight ranging from 10 to 11.5 tons and payload capacity of 2 to 1.5 tons.
 
The Group’s flagship company Bharat Forge Ltd has also bagged a big order to supply its Armour Troop Carrier (ATC) to an Asian country. Uniquely designed and built to provide logistic movements of troops in peacekeeping missions and forward areas, this mean machine is powered by ruggedised 230 – 280 HP diesel engine, paired with a 4x2/4x4 manual and automatic transmissions. It is capable of carrying 12 to 14 crew members with large cargo, with protection against 6 kgs TNT blast and modular enough to be used as command control vehicle and also an ambulance in emergencies.
 
Both the APC and ATC are suitably fitted with 360 degree rotating armored turret with modular weapon mounts to meet lethality requirements. The vehicles have been successfully tested and evaluated by armies globally, including Indian Army.
 
Rajinder Singh Bhatia, President & CEO (Defence and Aerospace) at Bharat Forge Ltd, said, “Kalyani Group has always been the pioneers of new technology and our philosophy is to always provide the best solution to the users. In this segment too, we want to make world-class products with the focus on three main requirements of any user – Provide best lethality, with off-road mobility and optimum protection.”
