Howitzer After 27 Years

Finally after a long wait for 27 years Indian Army got Howitzer Guns for its artillery. The induction is still 2-3 years away but at least deal is done. The ultra light weight M777 (145 nos) will be bought from USA under foreign direct military sales so no chance of any scam or middle man.
               M777 are being specially procured for two mountain divisions as each gun just weighs 4208 Kg and can be easily airlifted by helicopters.
              Still their remains huge deficiency in IA fire power as requirement of Howitzer is completely not fulfilled.
