New Delhi: Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T) and Raytheon Company have teamed up in an L&T led proposal submitted this month to upgrade Indian Army T72 tanks.

"L&T is the only Indian company in the private sector that is leading the tank upgrade program. L&T and Raytheon combination has got what it takes to deliver on such an important program," said M.V. Kotwal, Senior Executive Vice President and Member of the Board, L&T.

Under the proposal, Raytheon will provide infrared imaging sights and electronics that will greatly improve target accuracy and increase overall system lethality on the battlefield for T72 tank battalions. Raytheon has provided 20,000 thermal sights in more than 15 countries.

Larsen & Toubro will provide fire control system, sensors, and will accomplish the final integration along with customer support. L&T brings in track record of development of fire control systems across multiple weapon systems across Land, Naval and Air Defence applications.

"Through collaboration with L&T on this important proposal for the Indian Army, we have confirmed the very complementary capabilities leveraged across our companies," said Fritz Treyz, Vice President, Raytheon Network Centric Systems India Operations. "Together, we are exploring other opportunities to provide net-centric modernization defence solutions to meet growing demands in India and the global marketplace."

"This beginning would lead to new avenues in the Indian and global defence markets for both the partners working together," added M.V. Kotwal.
