Tata Group’s Association with the Defence Sector

The Tata Group's history with the Defence sector goes back to the 1940s when the Group supplied armoured steel to support the World War II effort. The Tata Group also developed a Wheeled Armoured Carrier - Indian Pattern or ACV-IP, better known as the 'Tatanagar'. From India’s independence in 1947 till 2005, the Group has contributed to serving India's defence needs in the mobility segment through Tata Motors.

 

Today, the Tata Group offers solutions in aerospace, land systems and homeland security, with different Tata entities serving India’s needs in the aerospace and defence manufacturing value chain. These are backed by the group’s strengths in advanced materials. Know more
