Indonesia is evaluating a proposal from India for a new artillery system, according to a recent meeting between the two countries’ defense ministries. A delegation from the Indonesian Ministry of Defense, led by Secretary General Marsdya TNI Purn Donny Ermawan Taufanto M.D.S., M.S.P, received a presentation about the MGS 155mm 8×8 truck-mounted artillery gun system. This presentation took place during a series of meetings forming the 7th Joint Defense Cooperation Committee (JDCC) between Indonesia and India.

The MGS system offered to Indonesia is manufactured by Kalyani Strategic Systems Ltd. (KSSL), an Indian private sector company affiliated with Bharat Forge Limited. Notably, the MGS is based on the Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS) developed by India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

The ATAGS is a technologically advanced artillery system known for its long firing range, high accuracy, and mobility. If adopted by Indonesia, the MGS variant would provide the Indonesian military with a powerful new capability.

Indonesia’s MoD is actively seeking to modernize its armed forces. The consideration of the MGS system highlights Indonesia’s interest in acquiring advanced artillery capabilities.

The outcome of the MGS proposal remains to be seen. Negotiations between the Indian company and the Indonesian MoD will likely determine the future of this potential defence deal. This development signifies the growing partnership between India and Indonesia in the defence sector.
