    @Spectre @Gessler

    Has this baby been selected by the Army yet? 52km range is killer. I wish we would buy things like this. The French are using the Caesar to good effect in Afghanistan and Mali.

    Nexter's Caesar seems to hold an edge and is likely to be selected. The other contenders are The Kalyani Group/ELBIT Systems partnership that is offering the ATMOS, and the Punj Lloyd/Yugoimport SDPR partnership that is likely to propose the NORA.

    This Indian CAESAR® is proposed by Larsen & Toubro to respond to the Mounted Gun System (MGS) program and follows on the partnership with Nexter built around the Indian Artillery. Both groups are actively cooperating on the Towed Gun System (TGS), MGS and M46 Up-gunning programs in order to address the needs of the Indian Forces. With this project, associating the CAESAR® artillery system from Nexter Systems and the Super Stallion chassis from Ashok Leyland, Larsen & Toubro offers, with its partners, the best Mobility/Firepower compromise to the Indian artillerymen.



    The CAESAR artillery system is already in service in 3 Armies throughout the world, and has been combat proven in Afghanistan, Lebanon and Mali where it has been deployed by the French Army.

    The first Scorpene-class diesel electric attack submarine (SSK) of the Indian Navy, INS Kalvari, built at the Mazagon Dock Ltd. (MDL) shipyard in Mumbai, has set out for sea trials. Some pictures from the event -

    The boat will be equipped with Black Shark HWTs as it's primary offensive armament. The upcoming BrahMos-NG (used to be called Mini) cruise missile can also be launched from the 533mm torpedo tubes, and can provide a lethal anti-surface/land-attack capability for these submarines.

    ....Also, a rather rare image of an Indian Navy Type-877EKM "Kilo" class SSK being loaded with a couple of 3M-54E Klub-S anti-shipping cruise missiles. They are designed to skim the sea surface for the most part of their maximum 220-km range and then accelerate to supersonic speeds at the terminal stage; the corresponding NATO reporting code is the SS-N-27B Sizzler.
