Modernization for Indian 105mm Light Field Guns. Small Introduction : Indian 105mm Light Field Gun is the primary artillery piece used in mass over Indian terrain by Indian Army, It was introduced in 1980s and considered one of the best in the world in terms of weight and its range which surpass Russian equivalent 122-mm D-30 field guns, It was also used in Kargil war in mass and more active then any other artillery piece during the war, Providing suppressive fire support for Infantry. Situation : Still today, 105mm IFG is the only arty piece used in mass and dispute induction of newer 155mm pieces such as American M777, It wont leave Indian inventory any time soon, Let it be now or in near futures. This is due to its Light weight design which enhance its portability, 105mm Indian field Gun will remain in Indian Army in mass specially in Mountain terrain that is because it can be transported by mules in parts to some of the inaccessible posts over LOC as well as LAC, This quality lacked in other artillery piece in Indian Army and also for American M777 155mm guns, Despite being light its range is outstandingly 17kms with HE rounds, Unfortunately there were no steps taken to increase its range with Bleed base / rocket assisted / GPS guided rounds, Nor in last decades any steps taken to increase its accuracy with help of digital fire control systems which are produced by BEL for FH-77B of 39 caliber and Prototype FH-77B of 45 caliber. Conclusion : It should be noted that 105mm IFG will remain in mass regardless of its age, It is imperative that such a artillery pieces which will be used by our Soldiers in mass that is in 21st century, And Should be Modernized. It should be noted that 105mm Field Guns are not only in Indian service but as well as British and American Military units, And are upgraded with new ammunition and fire control system which enhanced there range and accuracy as well. These Upgraded Guns were used in recent conflicts such as Iraq War and Ongoing Conflict in Afghanistan. ---------------- =============== =============== =============== =============== @A chauhan, @agentperry, @Ankit Purohit, @Apollyon, @arnabmit, @bengalraider, @Bheeshma, @bose, @cloud_9, @Defenceindia2010, @DEXTER07, @Dovah, @Ganesh2691, @Hari Sud, @Illusive, @indian_sukhoi, @jackprince, @Keshav Murali, @kshkumsin, @kurup, @latsar, @lcatejas, @Lions Of Punjab, @maomao, @mikhail, @Neeraj Mathur, @nishantgupta, @Patriot, @RAM, @sasi, @Sumonmitra20, @The Messiah, @Tronic, @TrueSpirit, @Waffen SS, @Welcome, @WMD @Ray sir, @ALBY, @arnab maity, @arnabmit, @Dovah, @JBH22, @navkapu, @sesha_maruthi27, @shafiq alam, @W.G.Ewald, @ersakthivel, @arnabmit , @Keshav Murali, @AVERAGE INDIAN, @Patriot, @SilentKiller , @cobra commando , @pmaitra , @WMD , @Neil, @civfanatic , @ladder, @asianobserve, @bengalraider, @captonjohn , @Decklander Sir .. , @shuvo@y2k10, @sayareakd Sir.. , @DivineHeretic, @trackwhack, @sob, @pmaitra , @LETHALFORCE, @Yusuf, @Bangalorean, @Twinblade, @Anshu Attri And all others.. ================ 1.
