K9 Vajra

K9 Vajra

News: The Defence Ministry has started the process for the procurement of 100 more K9-Vajra tracked self-propelled howitzers. 

About:
• The K9 Vajra is a 155 mm, 52-calibre tracked self-propelled howitzer (a short gun for firing shells on high trajectories at low velocities) built in India by Larsen & Toubro (L&T) with technology transferred from South Korean defence major Hanwha Defense based on its K9 Thunder.
• The K9 Thunder platform is made of all-welded steel armour protection material.
• The K9 gun has been developed under the ‘Buy Global’ programme of the Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) where foreign companies are allowed to participate.
• The K9 Vajra was mainly bought for use in deserts, but the India-China standoff prompted them to be deployed in the mountains as well.
