Initially an order of 114 guns worth $350 million will be given next year to the private companies. The ATAGS is being developed by the state-owned Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in partnership with two private sector firms — Kalyani Group and Tata Power SED. Two ATAGS prototypes have already been made and are under trials. The production can start within two years of order placement.
