    Mahindra Marksman deployed at New Delhi international airport

    The Mahindra Group has deployed six armoured Marksman vehicles to the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. These vehicles join the CISF’s (Central Industrial Security Force) Quick Reaction Team’s fleet. The introduction of the Mahindra Marksman makes the New Delhi international airport India’s first commercial airport to utilise armoured vehicles.

    The Mahindra Marksman is a six-seat (seats two in the front and four in the rear) light combat vehicle that has been armoured to ‘level B6’ standards – this level safeguards its occupants from small arms fire as well as grenade attacks. The Marksman is also capable of providing floor blast protection against up to two hand grenades.

    Powering the vehicles is either a 2.2-litre mHawk turbo-diesel engine or a 2.6-litre turbocharged DI engine. Both engines are paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The Marksman is based on the same platform as the Scorpio, though it weighs significantly more than the SUV due to the body armour.
