    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.

    That was OFB product not DRDO, OFB worked on 155/45cal gun which is a meter less in length to 155/52cal..

    155/52cal has longer range than 155/45cal with special ammo, also its thicker than 45cal barrel so more rounds can fired from same barrel..

    Also in addition to what Kunal has already pointed out in the post above the OFB project was based upon the old BOFORS design acquired in the 80's with very little modifications. the DRDO gun is envisaged as an entirely new Product!

    Kunal, the 39 calibre guns has more range with the ordinary Ammo than the 45 & 52 calibre guns. Is it because of using less heavier Ammo than the 45 cal & 52 Cal guns or is there something else.

    Cant say, but with ordinary ammo ( M107 M107 projectile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) 39cal guns have longer range than 45 & 52cal guns..
