army: Indian Army to buy 12 more made-in-India ‘Swathi’ weapon-locating radars for China border | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: As a major incentive for the Indian Army on the Chinese front, the Army has made a proposal to the Ministry of Defense to purchase 12 Swathi weapons-locating radars made by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).
The Indian Army has launched the proposal worth about Rs 1,000 crore in Swathi WLR and it is planned to consider it at a high-level defense ministry meeting, official sources told ANI.
Weapon-locating radars manufactured by DRDO and manufactured by Bharat Electronics Limited have achieved great success and were also supplied to Armenia.
Swathi weapon-locating radar provides fast, automatic and accurate positioning of enemy weapons such as mortars, shells and rockets within a 50-kilometer range.
Radars can simultaneously detect multiple projectiles fired from different weapons at different locations.
The Indian Army is using radar for their operations along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. The system was given to the military for trial in 2018.
New Indian Army Chief General Manoj Pandey is a major supporter of nationalization and orders for many types of equipment, such as self-propelled artillery guns, can only go to Indian vendors.
A major setback for small arms is also expected as orders for foreign assault rifles will now be given to Indian vendors who have made significant progress in this area.
