Indian company to look after Light Armour System Upgrade project for the Philippines
The Philippine Department of National Defense (DND) has awarded Indian company Larsen & Toubro (L&T) the acquisition project for the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP)’s Light Armor System Upgrade (LARSU), for a budget of 14 million US dollar
This redesign is expected to be utilized by the Philippine Navy and the Philippine Air Force to improve the operational preparation of line units.
It has been chosen to enhance the Light Armor Vehicles (LAVs) of both the Marines’ and Air Force’s Components.
These officially existing vehicles have demonstrated their proficiency as protective layer battle bolster in land and/or water capable and automated tasks aground. They likewise might be operational to deal with urban security.
In this way, the Philippine DND must replace deteriorating engine and extra parts of these LAVs to keep up their utility later on, which will be the mission of the Indian organization L&T.
