At an excellent session by G Chandramouli, Scientist G, Proj Dir, AKASH, DRDL , RDO, on Challenges in design, development, system integration, testing, evaluation and production of Surface to Air Tactical Missile system – Akash, at the International seminar in Bangalore held just before Aero India, a query on whether Tatra trucks were being used for launching missiles, was addressed.
“We have identified other vehicles and not received the go ahead…The first batch of Tatra, we are integrating. We have no issue. BEML is assuring us we will get more…”
Apparently, the scientists seem to understand that work related to security programs cannot afford to be delayed because of a lethargic decision making process.
Wonder if we haven't heard ALL about how actually tough the customizing of a truck for a launcher can be?!
