DRDO ATAGS SHATTERING WORLD RECORDS




On 31 AUG I reported in my post DRDO ATAGS ARTILLERY GUN TRIALS BEGIN (link) that the trials of indigenous 155mm/52 cal howitzer were started in the firing ranges of Pokhran,Rajasthan.

As in my original post i explained that the new howitzer was designed to be able to strike accurately upto distance of 42 to 45 kms but the gun since then has been performing beyond its expectations.

On 5th Sep 2017 the gun broke the world record by firing a special bleed base shell at a distance of 47.2 kms and now it has again shattered it's previously set record by firing the same special bleed base ammunition to a reported distance of 48.07 kms.

The gun has earlier also broken the world record for firing a normal high explosive shell to a distance of about 38 kms.

Normally 155mm/52 cal artillery guns have a maximum range of 35-40 kms with special bleed base shells and of about 30-32 kms with normal shells. 




The DRDO developed Kalyani group made ATAGS is  not just breaking records but instead is shattering them by long margins. It is setting up a benchmark for government-private partnership and is truly bringing the essence of MAKE IN INDIA. Also not to forget the project was initiated in 2013 and this proves that if DRDO  works in collaboration with private players we can not just develop and manufacture world class weapons but can  also set new benchmarks globally.
