Made in India Howitzer Artillery Gun Has Failed Tests Yet Again

Made in India Howitzer

According to Economic Times India, a source privy to the test said that a shell hit the muzzle brake when led to misfire and consequently a failed test. A muzzle brake is a component that is attached to the top of the barrel and helps reduce recoil while dispersing gasses on each side when a shell is fired.

Economic Times India adds that the gun faced a similar test fire issue just a few months back, in May. The gun is in house development by the Indian army and is being manufactured at Gun Carriage Factory at Jabalpur.
