After the coronavirus epidemic and lockdown, the message of self-reliant India is being given to the country. Along with increasing the technology, India is also engaged in making the defence system self-sufficient. In this process, the Howitzer Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System manufactured in India is being tested.
This gun developed by DRDO has been made keeping in mind the need of the Indian Army. With this gun, the target can be destroyed at a distance of about 50 km. News agency ANI tweeted a video of this gun trial. The trial of this artillery gun system is being done in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra.
