India helps Afghan military equipping with weapon systems

According to reports the government of India is planning to supply improved weapon systems for counter-terrorism to Afghanistan in a bid to help equip the Afghan armed forces.

The military equipment and weapons will be delivered to Afghanistan as part of the latest decision by the government of India to help the friendly countries, and as part of that the country will likely provide Afghanistan with troop carriers, spares for tanks, and rocket systems that are used in counter-insurgency operations. Khamaa press reported.

Top sources have told India today, that the Defence Ministry has asked the three services to draw-up a list of weapon systems that they can spare.

Sources also said New Delhi wants to give Afghanistan the Indian Army’s excess stocks.

The Afghan National Army is comfortable handling Russian-origin platforms, which comprise at least 60 percent of India’s arsenal.

“We will be providing them improved and strengthened weapons systems and platforms needed for effective counter-insurgency operations,” top sources told India Today.
