New Delhi: In a first, India’s Mahindra Group has made an armoured vehicle that can clear IEDs on the road. The Chairman of the company Anand Mahindra took to Twitter and shared about the specialty of the vehicle.
The pictures of the vehicle were first unveiled by SP Shukla, Group President and CEO of Mahindra Aerospace and Defence Sector, in a tweet with the caption ‘#MahindraDefence is proud to have designed, produced & exported ‘Mine Resistant Ambush Protected’ Speciality Vehicles with Interrogation arms to lift road side IEDs’.
The vehicles can be easily used to pick up IEDs and will be deployed to help in UN peacekeeping missions. The vehicle is an upgraded version of Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) Type Armored Personnel Carrier and is also a very superior off-roader.
Anand Mahindra quoted Shukla’s tweet and wrote ‘That looks like a Mean Machine, @Prakashukla It embodies the real spirit of #MahindraDefence which is about keeping peace keepers safe and if it was street legal, it would be perfect to drive in Mumbai traffic!’
