Indian Army has recently showcased the operations of its armoured regiments on Twitter. The Indian Army shared a video of the event stating, “Men…with Nerves of Steel, Body of Steel, riding Beasts of Steel”. What was noticeable in the video is the CMT i.e., Carrier Mortar Tracked Vehicle. CMT has been designed by Combat Vehicles Research & Development Establishment (CVRDE) to mount and fire an 81mm mortar from within the vehicle.

In the video we can see a BMP-2 mounted with OFB 81mm Mortar, 84mm shoulder fired Rocket Launcher & 7.62×51mm MAG 2A1 Medium Machine Gun. The CMT can store 108 rounds of mortar, 12 rounds of RCL Gun and 2350 rounds of 7.62×51mm MAG 2A1 Medium Machine Gun.

The vehicle can carry 6 personnel including crew. It has overall weight of 13 tonnes powered by 300 HP engine which gives it on road speed of 65 kmph, off road speed of 48 kmph and 7 kpmh in water.

Based on an Army’s requirement, Ordnance Factory, Medak, produced these vehicles and inducted into the Services.
