Lt General Upendra Dwivedi, Northern Army Commander, personally drove the new vehicle and quoted that the IPMVs are highly capable of being driven in the harsh terrain of the region. These combat vehicles have been specifically developed for challenging areas such as Ladakh where the movement of regular cars and trucks is restricted due to difficult terrain. "One can easily drive the vehicle and the driver can see 1,800 metres away from it. The weapon mounted on it can be controlled from inside," Northern Army Commander Lt General Upendra Dwivedi told ANI.
