NEW DELHI (PTI): Swedish defence firm Saab Group has tied up with Indian Ashok Leyland for Indian Army's requirement for short-range Surface-to-Air-Missile system tender.

"Saab and Ashok Leyland are teaming to meet the SRSAM requirement with a new solution that combines the Saab BAMSE missile system with Ashok Leyland high-mobility vehicles," a Saab release said here.

The system on offer from Saab and Ashok Leyland is a ground-based air defence missile.

"Ashok Leyland will deliver high-mobility vehicles to transport the SRSAM solution. All sub-units within the weapon system are being integrated with the Ashok Leyland Super Stallion 8x8, a high-mobility vehicle capable of operating in all types of terrain under all-weather conditions," it said.

"The tie-up brings together two great engineering companies with front-end technologies that together could serve the Indian Army well. The BAMSE is a proven air defence missile system," Saab's India head Lars-Olof Lindgren said.

Ashok Leyland Vice-Chairman V Sumantran said "we are pleased to announce this cooperation with Saab and together we are able to offer the Indian defence forces... Our Super-Stallion 8x8 platform will offer the best combination of performance and reliability."
