Are these manufactured or assembled here?..and if manufactured then how much of it is indigenous?
Manufactured entirely in India from raw material stage in that Haridwar plant. Ammo is made by OFB.

Here is an overview of BEMLs capabilities :

All of them are from BHEL. I mixed up the names, sorry.

BAE 127mm will not be made in India, as a part of the current deal. BHEL wanted to make the Otobreda 127 mm naval main gun in India after the gun won the IN's bid for the same. However the company OTO Melara was blacklisted as a part of the Agusta Westland scam investigation, OTO and Westland had the same parent company.

Thus the Navy had to scrap the old tender and buy the BAE 127mm gun. Now, Mahindra Defence has a JV with BAE and is already manufacturing BAE M777 guns in India. May be if Navy increases the order amount of the 127mm in the future we can have local assembly or even production in country.
