Bharat forge ULH.


Hats off to the Kalyani's for putting in their personal funds in setting up the defense products division. This inspite of the PSU mentality of the majority of our (Gober)ments. Only wish other Indian industrialists had the vision and guts to do something similar.

and Bharat Forge should be rewarded by contract for this. We need light guns in the Himalayas, 145 guns is too small a number.

Army should go with all steel, less expensive and maintenance free (lesser ) artillery gun which weighs 6.8 tonnes at lesser price. They even have titanium version at 4.5 tonnes.

The steal gun is heavier but modular, it can be dismantlement into two for easy transportation and reassembled in the field with minimum effort

I know we do not have the vehicle platform but regarding the gun itself.. is it the same 105mm gun system they are showing with truck mounting or a different one ?

That system is called Garuda 105 which is much lighter. Bharat Forge systems have been discussed in detail in previous thread in Sep 2014.

And we have Tata truck based solution too.

Thank you. Could you please point me to relevant post/s about the system itself.

I used the search function ('Bharat Forge') but could only find general news posts in the 'India's R&D in Defence DRDO, PSUs and Private Sector' and the 'Military Acquisitions, Partnerships & Developments' threads.
