Rosoboronexport has responded to the Indian Army’s requirement for a Light Tank for the Ladhak region with its Sprut-SDM1 tank which the officials claim can be implemented in India within the framework of a large-scale program of Russian-Indian technological cooperation.
Sprut-SDM1 which is equipped with a 125 mm gun that can fire both Mango and Invar munitions which are designed to take out tanks that are equipped with Reactive Armour.
Russia is keen to demonstrate the technical features of the tank and carry out a demonstration of the Sprut-SDM1 in India for which it waits for the Indian Response to its offer. India’s DRDO along with production partner Larsen & Toubro plans to rollout prototype of the Light Tank based on the DRDO’s design later this year which the company claims after initial Internal trials will be offered to the Indian Army for user trials that might go on for another two years.
