L&T inks deal with S Korea's Hanwha

 Larsen & Toubro has signed a contract with South Korea’s Hanwha Techwin (HTW) for execution of the 155 mm/52 Cal Tracked self propelled gun programme for the Indian Army.

 L&T was declared as the sole qualified bidder, post user evaluation trials, based on the performance of the K9 VAJRA-T, a self-propelled howitzer appropriately customised and fielded by L&T with HTW as the technology partner. The K9 VAJRA-T gun is an enhanced version of HTW’s K9 Thunder, to suit specific requirements of the Indian Army including desert operations, L&T said.
