"This collaboration brings together the manufacturing and technology excellence of two leading companies, which have matching synergies and complementary capabilities. The Kalyani M4 is a fantastic new generation vehicle, and we want to position it as the future of protection in all markets world-wide," Bharat Forge Deputy Managing Director Amit Kalyani said.
The Kalyani M4 is a multi-role platform, designed to meet the specific requirements of armed forces for quick mobility in rough terrain and in areas affected by mine and IED threats.
It offers best in-class levels of ballistic and blast protection - up to 50kg TNT side blast or IED/roadside bombs due to its design, built on a flat-floor monocoque hull.
Paramount Group Chairman Ivor Ichikowitz said all of its technologies have been developed with portable production in mind.
"We believe this model of world-beating innovative technology is fundamental to enhancing any country's contemporary defence, and technology capabilities. The Kalyani M4 is based on one of our flagship armoured vehicles designed specifically for in-country production in India with our partners the Kalyani Group," he added.
