    sir you might be familiar with a term called urgency. in this one needs to act swiftly in an organized manner to take down the emergency. here our forces are out of getting out of guns every other day because of old and almost expired guns. we need one gun in short term. and these people are wooing to develop on in next decade. what they want to prove? what are they thinking of? a new gun that india will eventually buy will be there for next 2 decades. in the meantime why army will even think of buying drdo gun which will be for sure an underperformer than a foreign gun. we got prithvi because no one is out there to sell a ballistic missile. if one can buy one then boom army wouldnt have looked upon drdo.

    moreover drdo duty is to tackle all such emergency and in this thing it fails completly

    DRDO to develop 155 mm field gun

    img0522hwe7

    Indian defence scientists have embarked on developing an indigenous 155 mm field gun. The project involves an investment of Rs 300-400 crore. The Ordnance Factories and private industry would be involved in the development and production, according to V.K. Saraswat, Director-General of the Defence Research and Development Organisation .

    The indigenous gun will have better firepower, higher penetration capabilities and autonomous features. It will take a couple of years to demonstrate the first prototype version. At present the development and production partners as well as automation requirements have been identified and work is in progress, he said.

    In the last 25 years, India has not produced its own field gun. The last field gun, the Bofors Howitzer, bought from the Swedish firm in the mid-1980’s, raised a big controversy. While the gun performed well in the Kargil conflict in the late 1990’s, off the battlefield it took a heavy political toll. It also resulted in no import and indigenous effort.

    Further, several global vendors were blacklisted for various reasons. There are just one or two options to buy, hence it is imperative to make our own gun argues V.K. Saraswat.

    Actually we have started very late... we could have build the Bofers 155 / 39 Cal whose design is laying with us for 20 years or so...at least it would have saved the army on the much needed guns for the time being... If I am not wrong OFB have planes to deliver the 155 / 39 Cal guns in next 6 months or so... not sure of its status right now... Moreover we should encourage private sector more & more such initiative I can think of one Kalyani Forge comming out with its own 155 / 45 Cal guns in 2 years time...

    proposing to introduce into this gun, for example a special coating for the barrel to enhance its life, the smart recoil system with rheological fluid or an electrical drive to elevate and traverse the gun.
