DRDO successfully tests Advanced Artillery Gun System
India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) achieved yet another technological breakthrough by successfully conducting the proof firing of Armament system for 155 mm x 52 calibre Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS) during the technical trials conducted recently at Proof & Experimental Establishment (PXE), Balasore, Odisha.
The ATAGS is being developed to supplement the indigenously designed and manufactured 155 millimeter/45 caliber artillery gun, Dhanush, an improved version of the FH-77B 155 mm/39 caliber towed howitzer manufactured by the Swedish defense contractor Bofors (now BAE Systems) and of which India acquired 414 between 1987 and 1991.
So let's do:
1. Expand the term DRDO and ATAGS?
2. Namer the country, Which has successfully conducting the proof firing of Armament system for 155 mm x 52 calibre ATAGS?
