Some key high­lights of the con­tract

SP's MAI - - MILITARY REPORT -

Larsen & Toubro, In­dia’s multi­na­tional en­gi­neer­ing con­glom­er­ate and pri­vate sec­tor de­fence ma­jor, and Han­wha Tech­win (HTW) of South Korea, signed a con­tract for ex­e­cu­tion of the 155mm/52-cal­i­bre tracked self-pro­pelled (SP) gun pro­gramme for the In­dian Army. The con­tract is a re­sult of nearly a decade-long close re­la­tion­ship and joint ef­forts of the two companies on this pro­gramme, through ex­ten­sive user eval­u­a­tion and field tri­als fol­lowed by con­tract ne­go­ti­a­tions with the In­dian Min­istry of De­fence.

Keep­ing the spirit of ‘Make in In­dia’, L&T shall not only man­u­fac­ture K9 Va­jra-T in In­dia, with over 50 per cent in­dige­nous con­tent, but also pro­vide through life sup­port from In­dia.
