    It would be really interesting if ITBP is also getting 105mm guns besides BSF and Army, The picture is taken from ITBP official page at FB ..

    Anybody has an update on testing of Dhanush artillery piece with new muzzle break. It is almost six months that the testing broke down and muzzle brake was blamed?

    Any updates.

    Seemingly muzzle brake itself has not been changed structurally. The M777 incident might have played some role here. After that incident, the Dhanush news didn't got any air.

    Great News Limited series production for 40 ATAGS approved, no news whether it's the TATA or BFL gun though
    that makes 114 DHANUSH + 40 ATAGS= 154 desi guns approved for production.
    Also significant in that it means there are now four factories in India building artillery guns
    Dhanush at OFB Jabalpur
    K9 at the L&T plant in Taloja near Pune.
    M777 at the mahindra assembly plant near Gurgaon
    & now ATAGS

    Did the Elbit gun undergo testing? Which ATAGS went into testing a few months ago?

    Not bad. 114 Dhanush + 40 ATAGS + 100 K-9 and 145 M777 -> That is confirmed 399 guns on order. Hopefully numbers will go up soon.
    Ideally we need to replace All 105 mm with 155 mm/39 cal like M777 and the ULH from Bharat forge. 105mm can be passed on to BSF and ITBP.

    These 40 are LSPs and would be developed by TATA and BFL in consortium. I would be most pleased if the whole ATAGS goes in consortium way. The basic idea behind ATAGS was that only.

    So, ATAGS will have Tata + Bharat Forge + Elbit? Why are you happy at the consortium?

    Can't say about ELBIT in future. But consortium is a good way forward due to individual strength of both TATA SED and BFL in their respective field. Even now, in both the guns, TATA Power SED thus holds a 70% component ratio.

    ELBIT is only the OEM for the autoloader in the BFL gun, no news yet whether the final approved gun will even have an auto loader.

    @bengalraider You posted about the proposed full production rate of ATAGS. If you still remember it could you post again.

    Thanks

    Autoloader in an towed artillery? Why would someone do such a thing?
