155 mm Towed Artillery Gun

The Elbit-Bharat Forge bid ATHOS 2052, has won the Indian Army’s 155 mm, 52 calibers towed artillery gun competition. While the requirement is for 1,580 towed guns, reports have suggested the possibility of the order being pruned to 400 imported guns.  For the acquisition of the remaining 1,180 guns the Government may opt for the indigenous Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS).  But sources hinted that the Elbit-Bharat Forge combine has pulled its price below even that of the Dhanush 155 mm, 42 caliber artillery gun produced by the Ordnance Factory Board resultantly ATAGS will be hard pressed to match the price of Elbit’s ATHOS 2052
