Trials of Indian Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System range of around 50 kms


The made-in-India howitzer Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS) underwent trials in Maharashtra's Ahmednagar on Sunday. Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the gun, with a striking range of around 50 km, is being readied for the requirements of the Indian Army.

The Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS) project was started in 2013 by DRDO to replace older guns in service in the Indian Army with a modern 155mm artillery gun. For the purpose, the DRDO laboratory Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) partnered with private players Bharat Forge Limited, Mahindra Defence Naval System, Tata Power Strategic Engineering Division and public sector unit Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) for this purpose.
