Army set to induct kamikaze drones, deploys more ‘winterised’ howitzers on China front | India News – Times of India
The Army will soon induct ‘loitering munitions’ amid the continuing military confrontation with China in eastern Ladakh, while the force also cranks up long-range high-volume firepower with ‘winterised’ howitzers and advanced rockets backed by drones and weapon-locating radars along the northern borders.
The next 100 K-9 guns will come with winterised kits,” another source said.
As for the M-777 howitzers, which can be swiftly airlifted to forward areas by Chinook helicopters, the bulk of the 145 guns ordered for over Rs 5,000 crore from the US have also been inducted along the LAC.
The seventh regiment of these howitzers, with a strike range of 30-km, is now also been operationalized, the sources said.
