Advanced Weapons and Equipment India Limited (AWEIL), a state-owned company located in Kanpur’s Armapur, has successfully completed fresh internal trials of the upgraded Dhanush 155mm/52 calibre artillery gun. The achievement marks a notable milestone in the pursuit of indigenous defense manufacturing and reinforces India’s commitment to enhancing its military firepower.

The prototype of the upgraded artillery gun, developed by AWEIL, is now primed for rigorous Army user trials, marking the culmination of meticulous research, development, and testing efforts. This modernized iteration of the Dhanush artillery gun, often dubbed as the “Desi Bofors,” builds upon the success of the Dhanush 155mm/45 calibre artillery gun, while incorporating crucial enhancements that promise to elevate its performance and utility on the battlefield.

One of the standout features of this upgraded artillery gun is its improved cannon calibre, which has been meticulously fine-tuned to deliver enhanced precision, range, and firepower. Company officials assert that the upgraded Dhanush gun utilizes approximately 80 percent of the components from its predecessor, thereby ensuring a seamless transition and reducing the need for an entirely different training regimen or maintenance crew. This interoperability not only streamlines the integration process but also underscores AWEIL’s commitment to maximizing efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

The incorporation of the latest changes and improvements through meticulous internal trials underscores AWEIL’s dedication to delivering cutting-edge defense solutions that meet the exacting standards of the Indian Armed Forces. The successful completion of internal company trials is a testament to the expertise, innovation, and unwavering commitment of AWEIL’s engineers and researchers.
