Barrow BAE to make Indian Army field guns


Recommended Posts

it says in the article 145 units, but may include a large spares package.


I see , I had pondered the caliber being 145mm , however just checked Wiki and it is 155mm


So - expensive


Aston Martin , new limited edition £1.5million - relative I suppose

For modern military contracts, they usually aren't just for a unit price to cover equipment (value of contract divided by number of units is not equal to the unit cost).


They generally go for a set period of time (20 years or so) and include things like:


  • Training
  • Spares
  • Maintenance
  • Overhaul
  • Logistics
  • Infrastructure




Of course, the M777 is top of the line and full of titanium, so it's not a cheap gun...
