An armoured vehicle for the Indian defence market has been developed through a partnership between Arotech, Concord Safety Systems, MKU and Jn Group.

The Concord 8 Lightweight Armoured Vehicle Solution, is a lightweight armoured reconnaissance and patrol vehicle currently undergoing testing at the Northern Command unit of the Indian Army.

The Concord C8 is based on an Indian 4X4 platform to be operated on all types of terrain. It can load a driver and six troops. The vehicles will be used in counter-insurgency patrol operations, logistics, reconnaissance and convoy protection, and search and rescue missions.

The vehicles will be available to the paramilitary and police forces in September.
