Bengaluru: The Indian Air Force has received the first lot of light bullet proof vehicles manufactured by Ashok Leyland, Swarajya reports. 

It should be noted that the light bullet proof vehicle is an adopted version of Lockheed Martin's Common Vehicle Next Gen (CVNG).

In a statement, Ashok Leyland said the vehicle was developed under the transfer of technology agreement between the two companies.

"Our mobility solutions range from 4x4 to 12x12 for Defence personnel and logistics, and they have proved to be reliable partners, across our armed forces," Nitin Seth, COO, Ashok Leyland was quoted as saying. 

While the first lot is delivered, Ashok Leyland will develop more products in collaboration with Lockheed Martin for India. 

However, there is no news on the order size yet.
