The first set of indigenously developed next-generation Armoured Engineer Reconnaissance Vehicle was inducted into the Corps of Engineers of the Indian Army at a function attended by Chief of Army Staff General MM Naravane at Pune on Tuesday.

The system has been designed by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and manufactured by Ordnance Factory Medak and Bharat Electronics Limited, Pune. Despite the various restrictions imposed in view of Covid-19 pandemic over the past one year, supply of vehicles to the Indian Army has been on schedule.

The vehicle is capable of carrying out reconnaissance of water obstacles and boggy patches for execution of engineer tasks with capabilities to carry out reconnaissance and provide real-time updates to force commanders. The system will enhance existing engineer reconnaissance capabilities of the Indian Army and would be a major game changer in support of mechanised operations in future conflicts.
