New Delhi: After a 27-year-long innings, the Indian Army is bidding goodbye to the iconic Maruti Gypsy - all 30,000 of them in its fleet. The Army is expected to try out new vehicles.
Army sources told CNN-IBN that the force plans to replace the Gypsy with more powerful vehicles in the 800 kilogram class.
The Gypsy may be replaced by the Tata Safari or Mahindra Scorpio - vehicles meant for hilly terrains. Tata & Mahindra are expected to file their proposals on April 15. Trials in different terrain and climates are expected to last a year.
