India inks Rs 5,000 crore howitzer deal with US to break Bofors jinx
The contract, of course, will also further consolidate the position of the US as one of the largest arms suppliers to India, having bagged deals worth over $15 billion since 2007. Of the 145 M-777 howitzers to be delivered from mid-2017 onwards, 120 will be assembled, integrated and tested in India with artillery-manufacturer BAE Systems selecting Mahindra as its business partner here. The howitzer, which weighs just over 4-tonne due to the use of titanium, can be moved to altitudes up to 16,000-feet.
