At Indo Defence 2016 in Jakarta, Indian vehicle manufacturer Tata Motors is showing, as might be expected, several of its logistics and utility vehicle solutions. However, company officials also revealed a move into the armoured vehicle sector.

The first vehicle of its type to be designed and built in India, the KESTREL 8×8 infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) has been developed in collaboration with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to meet the potential requirements of the Indian Army. With a gross weight of 22.5-26t, depending on configuration, the vehicle has a two man crew and up to 10 dismounts.

A single prototype has so far been built and is undergoing evaluation, but officials state that options under consideration include a wide range of weapon systems, including mounting a complete BMP-2 turret.
