Listen to the news
Bofors cannons were inducted into the Ortillery Regiment in the mid-1980s. These cannons are capable of firing from both high and low angles. After the completion of their servicing, they will be posted in Ladakh. With this, the Indian Air Force is working to deliver the necessary material to the forward post of Ladakh.
According to officials, these cannons require periodic servicing and maintenance. Technicians have been deployed for this. Explain that it is the responsibility of the army engineers of the workshop in which this work is done, that all the weapons and servicing required by the emergency should be maintained properly.
Explain that this cannon had changed the course of the entire war on its own during the Kargil war. The fire power of this cannon helped a lot in killing the enemies sitting on the height. Amid growing tension, the armies of both countries have increased the deployment of arms and jawans along the border. All three forces of India are keeping an eye on China's actions.
