10 Mesmerising Pictures Of Indian Army New Artillery Gun M777

M777 is the world’s first 155mm Howitzer weighing less than 10000 lbs (4218 kg). Selected by the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army as their next generation Medium Force weapon, designated M777. Further U.S., India orders more than a hundred guns. M777 is now in full rate production for the U.S. Armed Forces and is the benchmark for 155mm Lightweight Towed Artillery Systems.

Highly mobile on land, at sea and in the air, the M777 has increased survivability through:

  • Unsurpassed tactical & strategic mobility
  • Low thermal & radar signature
  • Rapid emplacement / displacement
  • Low silhouette.

In a major boost for the Indian Army, the first two guns out of the 145 M777 ultra light artillery guns, manufactured by BAE Systems in the US, will be delivered to India over this weekend. Notably, the guns come a month ahead of schedule. The M777 ultra-light howitzers will be mostly will be deployed in high-altitude areas in Arunachal Pradesh and Ladakh, bordering China.
