MoD signs contract worth Rs. 1,075 Crs with BEL for retro-modification of Commander Sight for T-90 Tanks
The Ministry of Defence (MoD), Government of India, and Navratna Defence PSU Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) on February 24, 2022, signed a contract for the retro-modification of Commander Sight of Battle Tanks-T90 for the Indian Army. The retro-modification will be carried out in 957 tanks. The total value of the contract is Rs. 1,075 Crs (including all taxes and duties.)
The successful indigenous development of Thermal Imager-based Commander Sight, jointly by IRDE, DRDO and BEL, with improved performance than its predecessor provides a further boost to the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Government of India. This will provide a fillip to indigenous defence manufacturing and open avenues for export of such advanced technology.
