Narendra Modi inaugurates L&T’s howitzer gun-manufacturing unit

Prime minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the howitzer gun-manufacturing unit of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) at Hazira in Surat on 19 Jan 2019.

L&T had won the Rs 4,500-crore contract to supply 100 units of the K9 Vajra-T 155 mm/52 calibre Tracked Self-Propelled gun systems to the Indian Army in 2017.

L&T's ASC in Hazira is the first manufacturing facility in the private sector to produce advanced armoured platforms for the defence sector.

K9 Vajra

The K9 VAJRA-T is a variant of the South Korean K9 Thunder which is considered by defence experts to be the world's best 155mm/52 calibre self-propelled howitzer in terms of the number of systems in active service.  

The K9 VAJRA-T is capable of firing Indian as well as all NATO standard ammunition and has been modified to ensure smooth operations in the desert environment of Rajasthan.
