Indian Army is planning to initiate a process under which it plans to procure 100 Made in India K9 Vajra-T 155 mm/52 caliber tracked self-propelled gun systems with winterization kits that are fine-tuned for winter climatic conditions along the LAC in eastern Ladakh.

This will be the second batch of orders that will be executed by the L&T as the Army also has plans to place an order for the third batch again 100 units of K9 Vajra-T sometime soon. Indian Army had procured 100 South Korean K9 Vajra-T self-propelled gun systems in 2017 that were all delivered in 2021 due to which production facility has been lying idle since then.

The winterization kit has nine components and systems that will allow it to withstand and operate in the icy winter conditions of eastern Ladhan since the original lot purchased in the first batch was primarily to be deployed on the Western border in Dry humid conditions of the Thar Desert.

L&T will be displaying the K10 ARV (Ammunition Resupply Vehicle), an automatic resupply vehicle based on the K9 platform used for resupplying 104 shells of 155 mm artillery ammunition and 504 units of charges under heavy fire at the next month’s Defexpo 2022 at Gandhinagar, Gujrat.
