    A 105mm gun weighing under 1 tons is no big deal.There are British and French 105mm guns which have 20km range with conventional ammo, weighing around 1.5-1.8 tons.

    My comparison with Singapore was with respect to use of/know how of Titanium Alloys. The 155/39 ULH have Titanium alloy.

    Baba kalyani gun was developed in less than an year. It weighs 900 kg and has a range of 17 to18 km. This gives a tremendous flexibility in logistics. It can be carried by choppers very easily.
