04 July 2016

India’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) has completed price negotiations with the Indian private-sector company Larsen & Toubro (L&T) for the supply of 100 modified South Korean K-9 self-propelled howitzers (SPHs) for around USD750 million.

Industry sources said the tender for the K-9 Vajra (Thunderbolt), which is an L&T-modified version of Samsung Techwin’s K-9 155 mm/52-calibre tracked SPH produced under a collaborative agreement, will now go to the Cabinet Committee on Security, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for approval before being signed.

The option for an additional 50 K-9s is to be included in the contract, which is likely to be signed before the end of the current financial year, in March 2017.
