in his chair on wheels, through the opening made for him among the crowd, a strange and startling creature--literally the half of a man--revealed himself to the general view.
This is in stark contrast to the first self-propelled
combines of 80 years ago.
L&T had in 2017 won the Rs 4,500-crore contract from the Ministry of Defence to supply 100 units of K9 Vajra-T 155 mm/52 calibre tracked self-propelled
gun systems to the Indian Army under the Centre's 'Make in India' initiative.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday inaugurated the Armoured Systems Complex of Larsen and Toubro in Gujarat, the first private facility in the country where the K9 Vajra self-propelled
Howitzer guns will be manufactured.
155mm howitzers are the centerpiece of the Army's artillery.
To date, 19,096 small vessels (2,422 non-self-propelled, 16,688 self-propelled
) have been registered in Kazakhstan.
Vehicles produced by Massey-Harris include: the M5 Stuart light tank (250 M5s, and 3,530 M5Als built); the M24 Chaffee light tank; the M41 Howitzer motor carriage self-propelled
artillery (built on M24 chassis); the M44 self-propelled
howitzer (250 built in early 1950s on M41 Walker Bulldog tank chassis); the M36 Jackson tank destroyer; the M19 gun motor carriage self-propelled
anti-aircraft artillery vehicle (300 built); 1-162 military tractor built for the U.S.
The tracked 2K22 "Tunguska" self-propelled
anti-aircraft weapon armed with a surface-to-air gun and missile system began serial production in 1964 and entered into service in 1982.
One reason for the relatively limited profile of self-propelled
mortars is that crew-served mortars have long been carried by Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) and simply fired through open hatches in the hull.
Silicon Valley-based Velodyne Acoustics has come out with a palm-sized laser device that could make self-propelled
Summary: Gulf Marine Services (GMS), one of the largest providers of self-propelled
, self-elevating jackup barges in the world, has won three new contracts in the Middle East.
GMSSA will provide a modern self-propelled
jack up service barge from a fleet of seven sister units all capable of supporting well intervention, construction and maintenance activities offshore.
