L&T offers a range of artillery systems to answer the varying requirements of application and terrain. They are characterised by best-in-class firepower and superior manoeuvrability. L&T is committed to providing support to ensure 24x7 operational readiness.
The K9 VAJRA-T 155mm/ 52 Cal. Tracked Self-Propelled Howitzer meets the requirements of 21st century warfare, which is based on the following missions: Deep fire support with its longer firing range; qualitative superiority to overcome a numerical inferiority with its higher rate of fire and accuracy and effective and reliable fire support in all kinds of circumstances with its higher mobility and protection.
The K9 VAJRA-T is a variant of K9 Thunder which is inarguably the world's best 155mm/52 Cal.SPH in terms of number of systems in active service. Currently, K9 Thunder is serving as one of the main conventional deterrent forces for a number of armies including the Korean Army. K9 Thunder has established its superiority through demonstrations and evaluation tests at various proving grounds in extreme weather conditions, jungles, barren deserts and severely cold areas. By demonstrating its ability to handle Indian as well as all NATO standard ammunitions, K9 VAJRA-T has proven its excellent conformability to any field artillery unit.
The 155 mm / 52 calibre Towed Gun System jointly developed by L&T and Nexter Systems, France for the Indian MoD is under User Evaluation by the Indian Army. L&T is responsible for development of the mobility system of the Gun, whereas Nexter provides the Ordnance System.
Our partnership is based on delivering value and effective solutions to the Indian Army. Apart from providing a proven Artillery Gun System, this consortium will open up new avenues in Indian and Global defence markets for both partners.
