Army Introduces Bullet-Proof Vehicles To Counter Kashmir Stone Pelters


Jammu: To keep security personnel away from harm’s way, the government has introduced an all new armoured personnel carrier in Jammu and Kashmir where stone-pelting has reared its ugly head as a new form of attack by a few wayward Kashmiri youth.

In violence-hit Kashmir, where stone-pelting incidents are reported on a regular basis, Panthera-T6 armoured vehicle will prove its mettle as a saviour. The state-of-the-art combat vehicle will also protect our forces from marauding terror attacks.

The cost of one Panthera-T6 armoured vehicle is around Rs 75 lakh and is built to deal with irate mobs and stone pelters. It is a light armoured personnel carrier and will be deployed in violence hit areas. The counter-terror vehicle is air-conditioned with a seating capacity for eight jawans.

It has real-time public monitoring system and high resolution camera, which can monitor a mob around 360 degrees.  The vehicle is quipped with stretcher, medicines and tow bars. Each Army unit will be equipped with two of these bullet-proof vehicles to record movements within 500 metre.
MSPV develops Panthera T6 from Toyota land cruiser. It is armored personnel carrier.
