The army has issued several tenders for procuring different types of howitzers in the last two decades but has failed to do so due to some problem or the other.

“The army has placed orders with the Ordnance Factory Board for procuring one hundred 155mm 52 calibre howitzers and this will be developed on the basis of Transfer of Technology (ToT) done by Bofors,” said Minister of State for Defence MM Pallam Raju in New Delhi.

He said indigenous development of the howitzers would continue alongside trials by the OFB and within a specific time frame, the guns would be delivered to the army.
