    BAE to join hands with ordnance factories to make high range artillery guns



    Nagpur: After supplying the M777 ultralight howitzers to the Indian Army, multinational weapons maker BAE Systems will now be tying up with the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) to make 155x52mm artillery guns. The OFB, which has already developed the Indian 155x45mm guns based on the Bofors howitzers, will make a superior version with BAE.
    The first batch of the M777 guns was recently delivered to the Army from the US. Due to its light weight, it can be shifted easily and even transported by helicopter. Now BAE, OFB, and Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML) plan to together make the 155x52 calibre of guns.
    The OFB has at present made Dhanush — the indigenous 155x45 mm howitzer with a higher range than the original Bofors. The new gun being planned to be made along with BAE Systems will have a superior range than even Dhanush, on account of the higher calibre.
    A mounted gun, it will have faster mobility as against a conventional towed howitzer. The guns will be mounted on a Tatra vehicle. It is planned to make the prototype by March next year with user trials expected to being in a couple of years, say sources.
    A memorandum of understanding will be signed between OFB, BAE Systems and BEML on Tuesday at Kolkata. The guns would be made at the Gun Carriage Factory (GCF), Jabalpur, where the Dhanush is also being manufactured.
    The MoU will entail a knowledge sharing agreement. BAE will share know how with OFB. BEML will be providing the vehicle on which the gun will be mounted. The three will be working in tandem on the project, said sources.
    Meanwhile, the OFB's Dhanush project has been facing several hiccups. Last month, CBI registered a case after one of the gun's spare parts, supplied by a private vendor from a Chinese manufacturer, was passed off as a made in Germany product. The agency has registered FIR against Sidh Sales, the Delhi-based private company and unknown officials of the OFB.
    At the same time, a case of barrel burst was reported in Korean K9 Thunder guns, for which India has signed a deal. Two soldiers were killed in the incident.
