Since 2022, the Indian Army has been steadily integrating the domestically-built Kalyani M4 into its arsenal. Developed by Bharat Forge, this Quick Reaction Fighting Vehicle (Heavy) is swiftly bolstering the Army’s combat capabilities.

Bharat Forge managed to deliver an impressive 126 M4 units in less than two years, showcasing India’s increasing self-reliance in defense production. The Kalyani M4 is praised for its ergonomic design, prioritizing crew comfort and operational efficiency. This ensures top-notch performance even in challenging scenarios.

The Indian Army is now contemplating an additional order of 100 M4 units from the Kalyani group, which has geared up its production line to churn out nearly 100 units annually. Moreover, the Kalyani group is prepared to further expand its production capacity to 30 units per month, potentially reaching 350 units per year.

With a combat range of approximately 800 kilometers, the M4 provides exceptional mobility, facilitating rapid troop and equipment deployment across various terrains, thereby significantly boosting battlefield responsiveness.

The recent deployment of the M4 in the Army’s northern command underscores its vital role in safeguarding India’s borders. Bharat Forge claims that the M4 can withstand substantial blasts, offering protection against three 10 kg TNT explosives placed under the wheels and a 50 kg IED blast on one side. This superior protection is paramount for ensuring troop safety in combat zones.

The induction of the Kalyani M4 signifies a significant milestone in India’s defense indigenization endeavors. Its mobility, protective features, and efficient delivery timeline make it a valuable asset for the Indian Army, enabling them to effectively tackle modern battlefield challenges.
