The Army edition of the Tata Safari Storme has been spotted in India.
The Tata Safari Storme Army edition has been spotted in India (with some camouflage) very recently. Tata Motors bagged the order to supply 3192 units of Safari Storme to the Indian Army. The Safari Storme replaces the Maruti Gypsy in the Indian Army’s convoy of vehicles.
The spy images reveal that the Army edition features heavy-duty steel wheels. The body cladding is missing on the Army edition. The SUV is also expected to get a pintle hook at the rear, a radio antenna on the hood and a fuel-carrier attached to the tail gate. The vehicle’s 200 mm ground clearance and ladder frame chassis will help it tackle any terrain with ease.
The Safari Storme Army edition is powered by the same 2.2-litre diesel motor that produces 154 HP of power and 400 Nm of torque. The oil-burner unit comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. A 4×4 transfer case with both high and low ranges will be offered as standard on the Army edition. The 4WD system can be activated via the rotary dial placed near the gear lever.
The Indian Army will use the Safari Storme as a personnel carrier and for reconnaissance purposes.
