DAC approves purchase of BrahMos, armoured vehicles

New Delhi: The Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) on Saturday approved the procurement of equipment worth Rs 3,000 crore which included the BrahMos missile for Navy ships and Armoured Recovery Vehicles (ARVs) for the Army's main battle tank Arjun.

The DAC, chaired by Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, approved the procurement of the indigenous BrahMos missile for two Indian Navy ships to be built in Russia. "The indigenously designed BrahMos missile is a tested and proven supersonic cruise missile and will form the primary weapon on-board these ships," the government said in its statement on the acquisition. 

The ARVs to be procured are designed and developed by the Defence Research Development Organisation and would be manufactured by M/S BEML, it said. "ARVs ensure efficient and speedy repair and recovery operations during combat".
