Indian Army inducts more TATA WhAP and Kalyani M4, now in the Sikkim Sector of LAC

The Indian Army has inducted more units of the DRDO-designed WhAP (Wheeled Armoured Platform) 8×8 Infantry Protected Mobility Vehicles (IPMV) built by TATA Advanced Systems Limited (TASL) as several units equipped with Remote Controlled Weapon Station (RCWS) were spotted in the Sikkim sector recently.

With a land speed of 80 kilometers per hour and amphibious speed of 8 kilometers per hour, the vehicles will enable troops to swiftly transition across different environments in adverse weather conditions.

Last year, the Indian Army received the first lot of these indigenously designed and manufactured Armoured vehicles and deployed to Ladakh in the first phase.

Apart from DRDO-designed and TATA-manufactured WhAP, the Indian Army has also inducted Kalyani Strategic Systems Limited (KSSL) manufactured M4 armored vehicle too. It was also seen alongside WhAP in the Sikkim sector, and it was also inducted last year alongside TATA WhAP, and deployed in the Ladakh sector in the first phase.


The Kalyani M4 is designed predominantly as an extraction and occupant protection vehicle. Its design offers high speed and quick maneuverability. It has a maximum payload of 2.3 tonnes and can carry up to 8 people. With all the armor, the M4 weighs around 16,000 Kg. It has a 43-degree approach and 44-degree departure angle with a water-wading depth of 900 mm to operate it in tough terrain or fording rivers.

The Kalyani M4 uses a turbocharged 6-potย diesel motor which is rated to deliver 465hp and 1627 Nm ofย torque. It uses aย CVT automatic transmission. It also features a low-rangeย gearboxย to work with theย 4ร—4 system to scale difficult steep inclines. The M4 has a top speed of 140 km/h and has a range of 800 km.

It can withstand three 10 kgย TNTย charges under the wheels and one 50 kgย IED Blast on one side.
