The Times of India reports:
NEW DELHI: The Army's new long-range ultra- light (ULH) howitzer M-777+ was damaged during a field trial in Pokhran firing range and a probe has been ordered into the incident, Army sources said here. The sources said the barrel of the US-manufactured gun exploded when it was firing Indian ammunition on September 2. India had received two M-777 ultra-light howitzers in May, each worth around Rs 35 crore, after a gap of 30 years since the Bofors scandal broke out, and the accident took place in one of them.
