Now we must do some reverse engineering like China and make our own 155 guns. I just want to inform that Ranchi's PSU. " Heavy Engineering Corporation ( http://www.hecltd.com/) can make the turret. ( beside other ordance factories) They have that expertise but why our army is not cultivating it is another ball game all together.

This will be deployed mainly in the mountainous terrain against china. Pinaka was effective during the kargil insurgency. Is 145 guns sufficient for the army ?

It is the same tactics every time. Delay and bore everyone till everyone is past caring and then slip in and do your own thing,
Has anyone explained why some "Boffin Babus Indicum" a breed peculiar to India -has been sitting on the Bofors drawings for Twenty years? And as anonymous said where is that?

Shiv Sir,

Why the guns are so costly when the same guns are sold to Australia at only $ 3.68 a piece. Kindly check,

Another Borfos is in making. God save our beloved country.

Side by side the Army must encourage indigenous defence production e.g. the efffort of the TATAs to make an artillery gun

We will get BIMODULAR charge tech from this purchase. No reverse engineering possible.
