IgMp has learnt that DRDO & Larsen and Toubro Light tank that is currently under fabrication, is based on the chassis of DRDO's Next Generation Main Battle Tank (NGMBT) and the successful rollout of the first prototype to happen in 2023.

This will also strengthen the DRDO's proposal  to develop the Next Generation Main Battle Tank (NGMBT) to meet the Indian Army's requirement for 1,770 Next Generation Main Battle Tank (NGMBT) under Future Ready Combat Vehicles (FRCV) program.

Talks have already started that the Next Generation Main Battle Tank will be manufactured through a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) under a public Private partnership model which has been adopted for the development of the 5.5 generation AMCA and Indian Multi-Role Helicopter (IMRH).

After the poor show of Russian tanks in Ukraine, the Indian Army is unlikely to go ahead with the Russian T-14 Armata under the FRCV program.
