As India Prepares To Meet $5 Billion Defence Export Target By 2025, BrahMos And Pinaka In High Demand
- India had already had export success in Armenia when it gave the country's Swathi weapon-locating radar.
- According to Kalyani Systems, the Indian government has authorised the export of its mine-protection vehicle, which can resist powerful landmine explosions
On Tuesday, October 18, Indian companies BrahMos Aerospace and Solar Group said that they had begun receiving orders from other countries, a sign of the Indian defence industry’s increasing strength. Atul D. Rane, chairman of BrahMos Aerospace, stated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has set a goal of $5 billion in defence exports by 2025. By then, BrahMos Aerospace should be able to meet that goal on its own, we hope.
We are hoping to receive more orders from the Philippines, and we are also in contact with Vietnam, Malaysia, and numerous other nations, according to Rane. Early this year, the Phillipines placed an order for BrahMos worth $335 million.
In the meantime, Armenia, which is at war with Azerbaijan, has ordered Pinaka missiles from the Solar Group, an indigenous manufacturer. We have a two-year deadline for an Armenian export order that we obtained.
He said that Nigeria and Indonesia had also showed interest in the Mukti barrel rocket launcher system, which had been developed domestically by the company in collaboration with the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO).
India had already had export success in Armenia when it gave the country’s Swathi weapon-locating radar. A sizable order was also placed by the Indian Army, which plans to add more regiments of Pinaka rockets.
According to Kalyani Systems, the Indian government has authorised the export of its mine-protection vehicle, which can resist powerful landmine explosions, and has already used it in overseas missions.
The chairman of Goa Shipyard Limited, Brajesh Upadhyay, stated that they have got an order for a floating dock from Sri Lanka and are looking for other orders from friendly neighbouring nations.
