This Is India’s Indigenously Made Artillery Gun Firing Shells

Artillery is one of the most important weapons for any army. They can provide critical support to the infantry and armoured fighting vehicles during a thrust inside enemy territory.

India has long relied on the Bofors as its main artillery cannon, or howitzer. Despite all the controversies associated with it, the cannons have proven their worth. Yet the Bofors Haubits FH77/B are now old cannons.

In its drive to modernize the Army and manufacture weapons in India, the DRDO started working on the 155mm Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATGS) in 2013.

 

A video of the gun during its testing phase has now surfaced. It shows the cannon firing shells from three different angles.

And in a slow-mo shot, we see the shell leaving the nozzle.

The ATGS will be around 2 tonne lighter than guns of a comparable make. They will be able to fire 5 rounds in successive short durations.
