Tata Motors on Friday said it has bagged an order worth over Rs 900 crore to supply 1,200 multi-axle trucks to the Indian Army.

It is the single largest order awarded to an Indian company in land systems by the Indian army and comprises 1,200 units of high-mobility 6X6 multi-axle trucks, Tata Motors said in a statement.

The trucks will be used for loading-unloading and transportation of ammunition pallets, spares and other operational equipment, it added.

Developed indigenously, the Tata 6X6 high mobility all- terrain all-wheel drive vehicle, has completed a total trial duration of 25 months, demonstrating maximum performance in the most demanding conditions, the company said.

“We at Tata Motors are extremely proud to have bagged the single largest order, among Indian OEM’s from the Indian army, for the most technologically advanced high mobility load carrier system ever built here in India,” Tata Motors, Vice President, Defence & Government Business, Vernon Noronha said.

The order is a validation of Tata Motor’s strategy and growth potential, he added.

“As leading suppliers of mobility solutions to the country’s security forces, we will shortly commence delivery of these high-mobility vehicles,” Noronha said.

Tata Motors has been associated with the country’s off-road defence and security forces, since 1958 and has supplied over 1,00,000 vehicles to the Indian military and Paramilitary forces, so far.

The company offers its products and services that not only meet the needs of the domestic market, but are also positioned to meet most stringent requirements across the world.

The Mumbai-based firm also exports its range of specialised defence vehicles to the SAARC, ASEAN and African regions.

Tata Motors stock closed at Rs 401.95, up 0.95 per cent, on the BSE.
