Courted among the leading Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) and Commercial Vehicle (CV) makers in India, Tata Motors is reported to have sourced five units of anti-mine vehicles to the Jharkhand Police. This move will enhance the combat prowess of the police force. According to a company statement, “Tata Motors has delivered 5 Mine-Protected Vehicles (MPV) to the Jharkhand Police force to bolster security preparedness.”
The mine-protected Multi-Purpose Vehicles (MPV) built by Tata Motors are designed on modular flexibility and incorporates V-shape hull blast protection technology. As per the company statement, these two advance safety technologies make the anti-mine vehicles best suited for security operations.
According to Tata Motors, the two new MPVs will offer its occupants protection against ambushes, sudden violent attacks, powerful explosive mines and heavy gunfire. The move by the Jharkhand police to employ these anti-mine MPVs was inspired by the order placed by the Maharashtra State Police for 32 units of the same model, which has already been executed by Tata Motors.
Speaking on the same, Vice-President, Defence and Government Business, Tata Motors, Vernon Noronha stated that the new Tata MPV will offer best level of protection to Jharkhand Police, defending them against Improvised Explosive Device (IED) and anti-personnel mines as well. According to Tata Motors, company has set up dealerships and service centres even in the remotest areas of Jharkhand to ensure timely and proper servicing of these special vehicles.
