After supplying 145 units of 155 millimeter/39 caliber M-777 howitzers to the Indian Army, BAE Systems has now offered an upgraded variant of its M-777 Howitzer which is a 155 millimeters/52 caliber variant

BAE Systems has offered the upgraded variant with the transfer of technology and a local assembly license agreement with its Indian industrial partner PTC Industries.

The upgraded M-777 Howitzer weighs less than 5,800 kilograms as compared to the 8,000 kilograms of the Ultralight Howitzer ER variant developed by the Kalyani group. Although the strength of the Kalyani-made Bharat Ultra Light Howitzer – Extended Range is much better because it is made of high-strength steel while BAE Systems-made M-777 upgraded variant uses the same Titanium to reduce the weight.

As seen in the Ukraine war, Titanium made basic variant of M-777 ULH suffers losses due to its continuous usage and the metal got melt due to heat generated during its continuous usage by Ukrainian forces. This is the reason the Kalyani group made it’s Ultra Light Howitzer with both steel and titanium as a choice for the Indian Army, as this will give two options to Indian Army to choose the Titanium version for low-level usage areas, and the steel version for heavy usage areas which is an advantage to its operations.

145 M-777 ULH procured earlier, has already been deployed to the Line of Actual Control to confront the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and is performing well till now. And as per the new negative list guidelines for weapons import issued by the Ministry of Defence under the supervision of Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, has already prohibited Ultra Light Howitzer or any howitzer category under the negative list of weapons which means the Indian Army can no longer import them from abroad.
