Since some few years ago, Kalyani Group has been a regular supplier of many important items like the T-72 road wheels, ready-to-fill ammunition shells and wheel rims & axles. A large amount of this equipment is supplied through other OEMs (original equipment manufacturers).

Chairman of Kalyani Group, Baba N Kalyani says, “Currently, it is less than a per cent of our group's turnover but in 10 years, we should be a major artillery house globally. For this, we first need to get a base in India."

At Defexpo 2014, the 105mm ultra-light field gun Garuda-105 was mounted on a light tactical vehicle Humvee. The Garuda-105 is based on an Indian-made 105mm field gun which incorporates state-of-the-art soft recoil technology and digital fire control.

With a weight of less than one ton, the Garuda-105 can be easily mounted on light all-terrain tactical vehicle to offer maneuverability in mountainous terrain.

This new mobile artillery solution was developed in collaboration with the Mandus group. Mandus Group is a worldwide leader in artillery innovation, logistics, and lifecycle support.

The Garuda105 mounted on HUMVEE light tactical vehicle is a lightweight, modular, high-performance howitzer designed to be integrated with many types of combat transportation.

By utilizing emerging technologies, it will set the standard for light artillery in the areas of firepower, tactical mobility, strategic deployability and command and control.

The Garuda-105 mounted on mobile platform will be a superior alternative to existing weapon systems such as the 106mm Recoilless Rifle, 120mm Mortar, and other 105mm artillery systems due to its low cost precision strike capability.
