In a move that further bolsters India’s “Make in India” initiative, Adani Group’s defense arm, Adani Defence & Aerospace, has signed an agreement with Thales Group to manufacture 70mm rockets within the country. This news comes on the heels of a similar agreement signed by Thales last year with Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL), a government-owned enterprise.

Thales announced the partnership on a social media platform “previously known as Twitter” (referencing the platform’s recent name change), highlighting the significance of the deal for both strengthening their commitment to India and expanding their global network of partners.

These rockets, known for their light weight, compact size, and maneuverability, are ideal for deployment on helicopters for day or night operations. They offer precision strike capabilities at ranges varying from 1.5 meters to a staggering 7 kilometers.

70mm rockets are already part of the ALH-Rudra WSI and LCH Prachand Weapons systems.
