Well this quote proves that my assesment of your intellegence is not wrong .
Uncle ji , nobody cares about your worthless assesment .


Government is incorporating OFB as registered company like BEL, BDL, HAL etc.
Even PSUs are not very bright example in performance but still GoI & all persons are so fed up with OFB's incompetence that they are celebrating it like major mile stone.
Yeah that Will make OFB = Lockheed Martin o_O :daru: :daru:

This issue was 100% caused by faulty OFB shell. Even preliminary inquiry says it was fault of the shell.

Looks like OFB Corporatisation is critical for the survival of this nation. Army is facing enemies at the frontier and these OFB chutiyas are still lollygagging.
did you even read that article before posting ?,........

An officer of project director’s level in the ARDE contacted by TOI refused to comment saying the matter could not be discussed in public forum. A spokesperson of Bharat Forge said none of the guns made by the company had been damaged in any of the incidents.


Tata Group also declined to comment on the report. Sources familiar with the matter, however, said, it’s a development process where multiple players are working together. They are committed to finding the cause and building the gun.

It is also being argued that faulty ammunition may have led to the incident.
According to the article they have not completed any investigation and article is just pure speculation .

May be be this may be that ,.......

Same thing happened with Dhanush, M777 and now the ATAGS. All three have OFB ammunition in common.

BEL produces decent products under license production. I am sure a corporatised OFB will do that as well.

In Russia Izmash is now a household name. OFB's greatest disadvantage is its lack of accountability, bloated size and union politics.

When IMI was state owned, it produced the Galil. OFB produced the INSAS.

Both guns have the same idea, a 5.56x45 mm based AK clone. One is world renowned and is even being made in India (ironically) while the other is being phased out to policemen and units who are never supposed to see combat.

Do you have any evidence for your claims ?


What is the proof that these gun were using ofb shells and not Kalyani shells or imported shells ??

What is the evidence that faulty shells caused this accident ?

Did you yourself examine the gun and came to this conclusion ?

You have Found the scapegoat even before the investigation ?

If the gun is performing good it means private companies are better but for any kind of malfunctioning you Will blame OFB ( even without any investigation or evidence ) , and if army officers don't
buy it then you Will again call them import lobby ? ?
Chill. It is norm to blame OFB for any barrel burst.

The article says Barrels are made by Bharat Forge but I think @airtel mentioned it's been built by OFB. Can you please confirm.
Both OFB as well as Bharat forge (Kalyani group ) are making barrels of ATAGS .

According to this article =
The Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) won the tender to manufacture gun barrels, along with forgings giant, the Kalyani Group.

The gun involved in this particular incident was manufactured by Bharat forge .

Exactly the gun involved in this particular incident was from Bharat Forge. So OFB role in this is just that they provided the ammunition.

( nothing to do with the barrels)
