The Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Guwahati will now be patrolled by the Scorpio’s deadly form, the Mahindra Marksman.

A Mahindra Marksman was spotted outside the region’s largest and busiest airport. The armoured vehicle arrived at the airport today and was stationed at the main entrance, guarded by four heavily armed men.

 

The Mahindra Marksman is India’s first armoured capsule-based light bulletproof vehicle designed to protect defence, paramilitary, and police personnel from small arms fire and grenade attacks. It is capable of being used in both counter-terrorism and conventional roles.

The Mahindra Marksman was unveiled in 2009 and was first used by Mumbai Police’s Force One before being ordered by several other state and central police forces, as well as paramilitary forces such as the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Border Security Force (BSF), and Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).

The Mahindra marksman would be manned by personnel from the CISF, which guards Indian airports.

Various forces use the SUV for counter-insurgency operations such as patrolling in high-intensity areas and conventional operations such as convoy protection and riot control.

Force One of the Mumbai Police, Delhi Police, Jammu and Kashmir Police, Kolkata Police, and the CISF has deployed the armoured SUV at various airports across India.
