Larsen and Toubro teams up with Raytheon to upgrade T-72 tanks

Mumbai, Feb 16 (Calcutta Tube) Engineering major Larsen and Toubro (L&T) Tuesday announced it had submitted a joint proposal with US defence technology firm Raytheon for upgrading India’s T-72 tanks.

According to the proposal submitted earlier this month, in which L&T is the lead contractor, Raytheon will provide infrared imaging sights and electronics to improve the tank’s target accuracy and overall system lethality, the company said in a regulatory filing.

‘L&T will provide fire control systems, sensors and will accomplish the final integration with customer support,’ said a company statement.

‘This beginning would lead to new avenues in Indian and global defence markets for both partners working together,’ added L&T senior executive vice president M.V. Kotwal.
