Israel, India and Russia are teaming up to manufacture superior munitions for Russian weapons. IMI (Israel Military Industries) has agreed to co-produce (with India and Russia) 125mm tank shells for Indian tanks, as well as for export. IMI has long been a producer of high end tank shells. Incorporating some of the IMI technology into 125mm shells for the Indian army will be no problem. India and Russia hope to gain experience in higher quality manufacturing methods as a result of this deal. Both Russia and India have long suffered from quality control problems in their military weapons and munitions plants.
