    The ghost of Bofors has been laid to rest. Hopefully, this will serve as a good omen for other initiatives to upgrade the Indian artillery.

    Got Detailed insight into the recent induction of howitzer. Having served under you ,I had no doubts that Arty in particular and Army in general is going to steer fwd in strategic dimensions.

    Article is healthy integration of strategic benefits as well as make in India and inherent technology benefits for sustenance of gun and futuristic developments.
