Abstract: The past week has been a memorable one for Indian defence watchers. It all began on 25 June with the Indian Air Force creating military history by successfully flying the Sukhoi-30 MK India (Su-30 MKI) with the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile. More good news was in the offing with the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) chaired by the Defence Minister, Manohar Parrikar clearing the beleaguered acquisition of 145 Ultra Light Howitzers and the bulk production of 18 Dhanush 144mm/45-caliber artillery guns. The howitzers and the artillery guns will add much needed muscle to the India Army’s artillery arm which has not seen any new acquisition for the past three decades since the Bofors scandal.
