NEW DELHI (PTI): Defence Land Systems India, a joint venture between Mahindra and Mahindra and global defence manufacturer BAE Systems, unveiled its new Mine Protected Vehicle India (MPVI) here on Monday.

The MPVI has been developed for the counter insurgency and anti-Naxal operations of Indian armed and paramilitary forces, Mahindra Defence Systems (MDS) chief executive Brig Khutub Hai said.

He said the vehicle was recently tested and survived a blast in which 14 kg of explosives were used. Hai said the vehicles would be built in India and will offer a high level of protection at a low price.

He said MPVI can accommodate 18 personnel and is capable of transporting a complete operational team of army or police forces involved in anti-terrorist and anti-Naxal operations.
