The Indian Ministry of Defense signed a contract with Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) for supply of 4,960 MILAN-2T Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGMs) to Indian Army at a cost of INR 1,188 crore.

This will further boost the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Government. It is a ‘Repeat Order’ of contract, which was signed with BDL on March 08, 2016, the MoD said in a release.

Induction is planned to be completed in three years. While the Milan was first produced in the ’70s, the Milan-2T is of more recent vintage– it was developed as a counter to ‘reactive armour’ in the ’90s.
