Visited Defexpo today and me and Bob V had a good time, the arrangements were good considering this is the first time such a Expo is happning in chennai. There is good parking area available but it was chaotic after the expo ended primarely because of the small roads and the wonderful attitude of our drivers, I would advice those going after this to leave early.

Have a lot of data and photos to share and there was a surprise exibit. It will take me atleast a month to edit and post all of it so kindly bare with me. All the pics i share will be watermarked no change in it

The question is whether the nominated production agencies have any spare capacity to begin with after supplying to Indian forces?

What is the status if Dhanush trials?
What is status of M777 firing tables?
Did they complete the instrumented (import from US) shells firing from M777?

Has the root cause been found for both shortcomings?

Also the muzzle strike etc., happen with which OFB shell? ERFB at max charge only?
Has the Dhanush Induction Center been setup?

If you can find Lt. Gen. Anjan Mukherjee(R) former DG Arty and/or Lt Gen. P.R. Shankar, please ask them and tell about our interest.

Also any news about Arjun -2 induction?


According to one of the OFB official I met Dhanush has cleared internal trials and soon the first 18 45cal guns will be delivered and the 52 cal gun is too ready and soon go for trials but they were not ready to talk in details on the issue and called it a ammo issue.

I am sorry on M777, we were late to the BAE stall and the officials were leaving and refused to talk (desi offcials were really good and happy to talk and give details)

But to compensate for that Kalyani 155mm ULH is ready and the gun alone has been tested and its a 100% inhouse design no forign input. they are making two versions one is mande of steel and other is titanium. the steel version will weight 6 tons but costs less and is modular and can be divided into two parts for transportation by helicopter ane other is completely titanium and will wight between 4.5 to 4.8 tons but cost more. The steel version is ready & is headding for trials as complete system next month & will be handed over for usertrials with in the next couple of months. The titanium version will also be ready soon.

Kalyani is also working on a mounted 155mm ULH using Advance Hybrid recoil which is also almost ready and tested as complete systen in another couple of months. Kalyanis has increased their defence potfolio considerably

That ratio seems to be for 120mm rounds. Doubt if that would work for 125mm round.

If you use linux like myself then you can watermark them by following my very own bash script-
1) Create a directory to store all the pics- mkdir def_expo_2018
2) Create a watermark file in the above created directory--basically a png or jpg with your specific watermark. You can create it in imagemagic and store it as "Watermark.png".
Now cd into above created directory and run the following code-
for i in *.jpg; do
composite -dissolve 50% -gravity center Watermark.jpg $i ${i//.jpg}-stamped.jpg
done

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), with a saga of achievements in last 60 years would be showcasing its flagship products during the DefExpo India – 2018, being held in Chennai from 11 – 14 April 2018.

An exclusive India Pavilion is being set up for the first time in DefExpo, which will showcase the combined strength of DRDO, Public and Private Sector in defence manufacturing.

DRDO is the largest exhibitor showcasing its innovations in all formats i.e. indoor, outdoor and live demo. DRDO is putting up flagship products and systems in two broad categories, one pertaining to technologies ready for transfer to industries for productionisation and the other pertaining to technologies ready for exports.

DRDO will be participating in the live demo for some of its indigenously designed and developed products, which includes Light Combat Aircraft – Tejas, Main Battle Tank Arjun MK-II, Arjun Armoured Recovery and Repair Vehicle (ARRV), T-72 Trawl, T-72 Bridge Layer Tank, Wheeled Armoured Platform (WhaP), Mobile Surveillance System and Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS).

The outdoor exhibits include Nirbhay Missile System with Launcher, Autonomous Unmanned Ground Vehicle (AUGV), MBT Arjun Mk-I, Astra Missile, Low Level Transportable Radar (LLTR) System, Medium Power Radar (MPR) System, Convoy Jammer, Multipurpose Decontamination System (MPDS), Varunastra - Heavy Weight Anti Submarine Electric Torpedo, Bio-Toilet, etc.

Ministry of Defence
DRDO Celebrates ‘Make in India’ Spirit in Defexpo – 2018
Posted On: 11 APR 2018 9:08PM by PIB Delhi
Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) transferred eight technologies to seven industries from private and public sector in the presence of Raksha Mantri Smt Nirmala Sitharaman during DefExpo India – 2018 at Thiruvidanthai, Kancheepuram district on the East Coast Road near Chennai, today. The spectrum of products include missiles, torpedoes, grenades, sonars, sonar dome, gas turbine technologies and Identification of Friend and Foe (IFF) systems.

This occasion saw the symbolic handing over of the total accrued Transfer of Technology (ToT) fee of Rs 192 crore by Chairman DRDO & Secretary, Department of Defence R&D Dr. S Christopher to Raksha Mantri arising from 290 ToTs by DRDO to industries from 2015 to till date. A record number of 112 ToTs were executed in 2017 and a record ToT fee of Rs 158 crore has accrued in this year alone till date, breaking all previous records.

This will provide a major boost to the "Make-In-India" programme envisioned by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. Following three products were handed over to the Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Sunil Lanba by Raksha Mantri Smt Nirmala Sitharaman:-

Processor based Moored Mines
Advanced VLF Modulator & De-Modulator
Modern ESM System - Varuna


The Light Combat Aircraft - Tejas, which is designed and developed by ADA – a autonomous society of DRDO was amongst the major product that found mention during the function. So was BrahMos missile, the major sub systems of which were indigenized and developed in line with Make in India by DRDL, a laboratory of DRDO, and productionized as well as marketed by BrahMos Aerospace Limited, a joint venture of DRDO and NPOM, Russia.

To celebrate sixty years of its existence, DRDO has had a number of events to commemorate the celebrations such as outreach programmes for industry and S&T in schools & colleges, S&T exhibitions, Cyber Challenge, Public Lectures by Young Scientists, National Level Essay Competition and Skill India initiatives.

A commemorative postal stamp designed by the Department of Post & Telegraph was released on the occasion to honour DRDO scientists, both past and present, who have contributed in the 60 year journey of making India self-sufficient and self-reliant in Defence technologies and systems.

Thanks to Bob V i could manage to cover atleast 75% of the expo yesterday

We could cover only 75% because in most of PSU stalls people from the main stream ware unavailable and others who had limited knowledg were manning them and coudnt get answersw and in some cases the stalls were closed and we coudent reach on time to get answers.

Maybe it could be something to do with the over all height of the system for aerial transportation??
Moving the gun any more closer would require the barrel to be elevated higher given the length of the barrel, there is also the overhang above the truck cabin
