It is one of the offers being made. The tender itself is now open upto June.
I thought our shoulder fired MANPADS was due to be ready for induction in a yr or 2 . This article seems to be suggesting the opposite. Does anyone have an idea about this development ? Besides weren't we supposed to have inducted the IGLA-S ? Wonder what happened to that ? @marich01The first type of Very Short Air Defence System will be shoulder-fired and will be made under the "Make in India" initiative where foreign companies are likely to partner with Indian firms. This contest could see the participation by French firm Thales and Bharat Dynamics Limited along with Saab from Sweden.
