Default M777 howitzers hitting India this weekend

Where do you thing they will be placed first?

BAE US will make 25, the rest will be made in India.

I guess Trump can't claim credit for US jobs on this one.


First M777 ultra light artillery gun to reach India this weekend

After three decades, the Indian Army is all set to receive its first heavy ordnance as the first two guns out of the 145 M777 ultra light artillery guns it ordered from the US are expected to arrive, a month ahead of schedule, over this weekend, said a company statement.

"In fulfillment of the United States' Foreign Military Sale of 145 M777 ultra light weight howitzer to India, we are pleased to confirm that the first two weapon systems will land in India ahead of schedule over this weekend," a BAE Systems spokesman said in a statement.
