In a significant stride towards bolstering India’s defence capabilities and establishing a global footprint in the defence equipment sector, Bharat Forge, a leading player in the Indian defence industry, has confirmed that it achieved record export sales of defence equipment in the first quarter of the current financial year. This announcement was made by Amit Kalyani, Joint Managing Director at Bharat Forge, during the company’s June Quarter Report Card presentation.
One notable instance of this recognition is Azerbaijan’s recent accusation that India supplied heavy weaponry to its arch-rival Armenia via Iran. This accusation was accompanied by images circulating on the internet that depicted what appeared to be 155mm/39 MArG self-propelled howitzers, developed by Kalyani Strategic Systems Limited (KSSL), a subsidiary of Bharat Forge. These images highlighted India’s expanding presence in the defence equipment market and the credibility of its products.
Armenia, in its quest to modernize its military capabilities, has also placed orders for Pinaka multiple rocket launch systems and Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS) from Indian manufacturers. While the delivery of these orders is yet to commence, the willingness of other nations to invest in Indian defence equipment indicates a growing confidence in the quality and performance of these products.
