NEW DELHI: The Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) on Saturday accorded approval for the acquisition of defence equipment worth nearly Rs 3000 crore which includes BrahMos Missiles, and Armoured Recovery Vehicles (ARVs) for Battle Tank Arjun. The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.

The DAC also approved the procurement of Armoured Recovery Vehicles (ARVs) for the Indian Army's main battle tank Arjun. These are Designed and Developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and would be manufactured by BEMLARVs ensure efficient and speedy repair and recovery operations during combat.

The DAC had earlier in September approved the purchase of equipment valued at over Rs 9,100 crore. These included the purchase of two Regiments of Akash Missile Systems under 'Buy (Indian)' category. The Missile to be procured is an upgraded version of the previously inducted Akash missiles and will include seeker technology, possess 360 degree coverage and will be of compact configuration with reduced signature. The upgraded Akash Weapon System is operationally critical equipment which will provide protection to vital assets.

The DAC also gave its approval for progressing Design and Development of Individual Under Water Breathing Apparatus (IUWBA) for T 90 Tanks. Developed by DRDO Lab DEBEL, the IUWBA is used by the crew of Tanks as a safety gear and is required by the Tank crew for emergency escape when negotiating water obstacles while deep fording.
