    The Indian Army is looking to buy diver propulsion vehicles (DPVs) for its commando divers. Here's what the RFI states: "The DPV should be capable of carrying two fully equipped combat divers along with additional 60 to 80-kg of cargo over a distance of not less than 5 nautical miles. It should have a cruising speed not less than 2-knots and be capable of operating upto a depth of 30m. The DPV should have an advanced and reliable navigation system preferably with depth gauging facility. It should be light weight, made of marine grade materials and be able to be easily carried over land by two personnel over short distance and in a vehicle over longer distances and also be capable of being para-dropped with suitable preparations."
