The Indian company has confirmed that the recently demonstrated unarmored self-propelled howitzers are intended for Armenia. According to the Indian IDRW (Indian Defense Research Wing) website, the Indian artillery systems manufacturing company Bharat Forge has confirmed that the recently demonstrated MArG 155 armored self-propelled howitzers are intended for Armenia. According to the website, it is a significant achievement for India, as the country has recently been trying to supply international partners with locally produced defense weapons. In 2020, Armenia purchased 4 units of Swathi mobile radar from India. In September 2022, a $245 million contract was signed to buy Pinaka multiple rocket launchers, anti-tank missiles, and various types of ammunition. The MArG 155 is also reported to be a state-of-the-art artillery system that combines power, precision, and mobility: Equipped with a 155 mm 39-caliber cannon and 4-wheel traction, it provides exceptional maneuverability in any terrain. According to the site, its ability to handle slopes of up to 30 degrees and "shoot and run" capabilities make it a flexible and formidable weapon in combat situations.
