India’s Ministry of Defense and Bharat Dynamics Limited have signed a deal for the delivery of T-90 tank missiles manufactured under Russian license to the Indian army, according to The Hindu.


Under the terms of the $470 million contract, BDL will deliver Invar missiles to be combined with T-90 tanks within the next five years.


Invar is a laser-guided antitank missile with a range of five kilometers (three miles) and capability of penetrating explosive reactive armor.


Bharat Dynamics has been manufacturing the missiles in collaboration with Russia’s state arms exporter, Rosoboronexport, the newspaper said.


According to media reports, India is planning to procure 25,000 Invar missiles for its T-90 tanks, including 10,000 to be bought directly from Russia and 15,000 to be manufactured domestically under Russian license.
