June 10, 2018


In a big boost to the indigenous project, Dhanush artillery cleared the final trials and now it is all set to be inducted into the Indian Army. The final test was conducted at the Pokhran firing range of Rajasthan.

The final test included a test firing of 50 rounds of shells which were test fired from six Dhanush guns.

“Six guns in battery formation (at one go and at one target) successfully fired 101 rounds on June 7,” Senior General Manager SK Singh, Gun Carriage Factory (GCF).

The Dhanush is made by Gun Carriage Factory (GCF), Jabalpur and is a 155×45 caliber howitzer with a range of 38km which is much better than the old Bofors used by the Army.
