Future Ready Combat Vehicle
The conceptualization of Future Ready Combat Vehicle (FRCV) is a reflection of change in approach to production of new systems with the end user driving the project rather than the DRDO. It is also a deliberate step in consonance with the Make in India philosophy. If the army can actually get a single basic platform, with a modular design, and utilize it for multiple activities that an armour protected vehicle is required for, it surely would meet our futuristic requirements. Whether the concept can be translated to a tank/tracked gun system / armoured recovery vehicle is not just the apprehensions are all about, it’s also the time frame and funding that the project will call for. Major General P K Chakravorty examines the issue.
