In a significant stride towards bolstering India’s defence capabilities, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) earlier this year took a pivotal step by granting Acceptance of Necessity (AoN) for the acquisition of 307 Advanced Towed Artillery Gun Systems (ATAGS) from the Indian private sector.

Kalyani Strategic Systems Limited (KSSL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the renowned engineering powerhouse Bharat Forge, confirmed that the Request for Quotation (RFQ) has been submitted to the MoD for the ATAGS procurement that exuded confidence that the MoD will finalize the agreement within the next six months, potentially paving the way for an early 2024 contract signing.

The company has already secured export for an undisclosed number of units from Armenia for the ATAGS, affirming the international appeal of this advanced artillery system.

KSSL, Tata Defence, and DRDO developed ATAGS might see split order between two companies Since the ATAGS was designed with the help of DRDO along with two Private sector companies. KSSL has claimed that will have annual production capabilities of 75 units as the Indian Army has combined requirements of nearly 1500 units that it plans to induct in the next 10 years.
