Advanced Weapons and Equipment India Ltd (AWEIL) has said that the company will be responding to the Indian Army Request For Information (RFI) to acquire 400 units of 155mm/52 caliber Towed Artillery gun systems.
AWEIL will offer its 155mm/52 caliber version of Dhanush howitzer that was developed on the baseline 155mm/45 caliber Dhanush howitzer that was already ordered by the Indian Army in 2019 for 114 units.
Dhanush will see competition from DRDO’s ATAGS, Bharat Forge Kalayni group’s Bharat-52 and ULH-ER and possibly Adani-Elbit ATHOS 2052 howitzers in the RFI issued by the Indian Army.
