Good to know about Kalyani and TATA - ATAG.
What happened to Dhanush or M777 tests?
Giving it up will be a blunder.
Then again, what about fixing the OFB to make the correct type of artillery shells?
Why do we need both Dhanush and ATAGS? Isn't one enough? I know that Dhanush is 45 calibre while ATAGS is 52 Calibre. But, why have both? We have M777 for lightweight howitzer and one long range artillery - either ATAGS or Dhanush should be enough
Competition for one thing. More the players more the performance.
In the long run both models can evolve into different niche . One might me more focused on desert environment while one might focus on cold environment. And so on. That is how light howitzer evolved from regular howitzer.
We will similar evolutions if we have multiple products.
ADB downgrades India's GDP growth outlook to 7% for 2017-18
GDP Is projected grow Gross 7% My prediction 6.8
It is still Better What Opposition is projecting Which slowdown
Wrong thread my friend. This should be posted in Indian economy thread, not in artillery thread.
This is a great accomplishment. usually hot weather trials are more difficult for these type of guns. If hot weather trials are successful, I do not think that cold weather trial will cause much problem. We should start the preparation of mass production and we must start finding possible customers for this gun.
Let the forth quarter come and people shall start revising the GDP upward.
I think this M77 gun is of high caliber. We we move from 155*52 to something like 155*72, we shall also have longer range. This gun is likely hold a leading position in 155*52 caliber category.
M777-ER is the 52 calibre variant of M777, same as ATAGS.
Just the barrel length, Nothing much in common ..
I know and I thought it was implied in my earlier posts.
This means around 60-65km range in places like Cargill, rocket assisted rounds will farther. We need to develop accuracy kits and guided rounds also.
Can experts on this forum read and analyze this Times Of India report.
The shell hit the muzzle break which means the trajectory of it as soon as it left the barrel was off by several degrees. It could have been caused by either uneven detonation of the charge or the rifling was so screwed up the shell was bouncing off the sides like a smooth-bore musket.
This fit needs to be perfect or the shell can bounce around.

When Shell size differ from Bore size of gun and do not fit accurately, it lets the hot jet to come out from one side before shell comes out. which pushes shell one side when it comes out and it causes the shell to collide with one side of gun and damages it.
When these guns were in making, we were told that they will be fire upto 40 KMs. Now guns have broken all the records and have fired 20% longer range. Great job Baba kalyani and TATA.
Baba kalyanis ultra light field gun is also a very classic gun which weighs just 900 KG against the 4100 kg of old gun. It is a logistic blessing. You can carry it to any place with ALH.
If they have their product ready then they should definitely ask MoD for testing range or partner with DRDO for further development.
