K-9 Vajra deployed in Eastern Ladakh
In view of the ever-increasing maneuvers of China, now for the first time in Eastern Ladakh, the Indian Army has deployed the entire regiment of K-9 Vajra guns. The K-9 Vajra cannon can attack enemy positions from a distance of about 50 km. The cannon has been deployed in the forward area of eastern Ladakh, which is at an altitude of 13-14 thousand feet. The deployment of the K-9 Vajra howitzer has been done at a time when the Chinese army is fiercely using drones in the areas adjacent to the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
Earlier this year, the Indian Army deployed three K-9 Vajra cannons in the high mountainous areas of Ladakh, after which they were taken for testing to a military base built in mountainous areas at an altitude of 17 to 18 thousand feet. After successful in the test, the Indian Army can bring about three additional regiments of these automatic guns for mountain missions.
