Kalyani Group, a leading Indian defence and aerospace conglomerate, has expressed its interest in participating in the development of the Future Ready Combat Vehicle (FRCV) program. This ambitious project aims to replace the Indian Army’s ageing fleet of T-72 main battle tanks (MBTs) with next-generation 55-ton vehicles starting in 2030.

Company officials at the Maharashtra MSME Defence Expo highlighted Kalyani’s established expertise in manufacturing crucial tank components. Notably, the group is the first private sector company in India to successfully manufacture barrels for MBTs, surpassing even the quality of Russian-made ones for the T-72 and T-90 programs.

Kalyani’s capabilities extend beyond barrels, encompassing the development and production of:

  • Road wheels
  • Tracks
  • Crankshafts
  • Turbochargers

Furthermore, the group has expressed its interest in contributing to the development of hulls and turrets for the FRCV. The FRCV program will see increased involvement of Indian private companies to foster indigenous defence capabilities and reduce reliance on imports.
