I think the article is referring to following in DRDO newsletter about Akash
https://drdo.gov.in/drdo/pub/newsletter ... une_14.pdf
The cost-effective Akash missile system is modular and mobile with all its components including launchers either wheeled truck or trailer mounted. Good lateral acceleration capability of missile till intercept provides high manoeuvrability and capability against high performance air targets, such as tactical strike aircraft, bombers, high altitude reconnaissance aeroplane and armed helicopters
I've seen only Tatra, Ashoka Leyland or Tata trucks till now, not Volvo. Anyhow it's just a random observation.
