It looks like Larsen & Toubro Ltd will ink an agreement with Korea’s Hanwha Techwin to supply self-propelled guns to the army under the government’s Make in India programme.
Quoting an official familiar with the development, a report in Moneycontrol said the pact between the two companies will be for the self-propelled gun programme of the Indian army for supplying K-9 Vajra-T’ 155-mm/52-calibre howitzers.
It said that last month, L&T has been selected for supplying 100 such guns. Also, speaking at a February 13 press conference, L&T Group Executive Chairman AM Naik had said the company would “soon be getting a Rs. 4,600-crore order for guns”.
Hanwha makes robots, renewable fuel cells, aircraft engines, sophisticated security products for airports, ports and military establishments and weapon systems for aviation and terrestrial purposes.
