Indigenously-made Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS) has cleared all user trials mandated by the Indian Army and in the next two months will also clear Environmental trials that don’t involve testing of the Gun system but to check the effects of the external weather conditions. Indian Army will place orders for 150 guns soon after but the ATAGS-based Mounted Artillery Gun System (MGS) that is currently going into integration might be the next big thing that will be coming out in 2023.
Mounting Artillery Gun System (MGS) system will be based on the Tatra T815 27ET96 28 300 8×8 terrain vehicle that will feature a new Armored driver cabin. Truck-mounted all-steel Mounted Artillery Gun (MArG) 155 mm / 39 caliber Ultra-Light Howitzer (ULH ) called TC-20 already has been handed over to the Indian Army for trials and soon there will be limited induction on this front too.
Indian Army is looking to induct two Mounted Artillery Gun System (MGS) systems one that will have a 155 mm/52 caliber gun system on an 8×8 terrain vehicle and a 155 mm / 39 caliber Ultra-Light Howitzer (ULH ) gun system mounted on a 4×2 truck.
