I don't know, what I do know is that at the moment we can't produce all the Cesars we're asked to.

India menawarkan MGS 155 SPH ke Brasil

India offers MGS 155 SPH to Brazil
September 6, 2023 / by Author Rangga Baswara Sawiyya

AIRSPACE REVIEW (airspace-review.com) - The Brazilian Armed Forces is looking for Self-Propelled Howitzer (SPH) systems to strengthen its ground forces, with 36 units to be acquired.

The new artillery is expected to increase the firepower of the Brazilian Army's field artillery battalions to replace the current aging SPH systems.

On August 18, 2023, the Brazilian Army Commission issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) and Request for Tender (RFT) to acquire a 155 mm wheeled SPH armored fighting vehicle referred to as the VBC OAP 155 mm SR.

Bids that have come in include those from France, Israel and Turkiye. Later India also positioned itself in this tender.

France offered the Nexter Caesar 155, Israel's Elbit Systems the ATMOS 155, and MKE Turkeyye the Yavuz 156. While India proposed the MGS 155.

Specifically, the MGS 155 (Mounted Gun System/MGS) was developed by India's DRDO in 2013, part of the Indian Army's ATAGS project.

The MGS has an armored cabin to protect its seven crew members from light caliber weapon fire and artillery shrapnel. Firing activities can be conducted from inside the cabin safely.

The system uses an 8X8 driven High Mobility Vehicle (HMV) developed by Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML).

The rear of the truck is equipped with a 155/52 caliber ATAGS (Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System), capable of carrying 24 rounds and payloads on its combat missions.

The system can fire ERFB High Explosive Extended Range (BT) munitions reaching a maximum firing range of 35 km, and up to 45 km when using ERFB (BB) artillery shells.

This field artillery system has a horizontal trajectory of about 25° and a vertical height range from 0° to 72°.

Its howitzers can release three rounds in less than 30 seconds and maintain a sustained rate of fire of 42 rounds per hour.

A combat-ready MGS can fire its first round in less than 80 seconds, and can leave its firing position in less than 85 seconds.

On the highway, the truck can reach a top speed of 80 km/h and is capable of reaching 40 km/h in off-road conditions.

The bill will keep the government open through November 17 and includes natural disaster aid but not additional funding for Ukraine or border security.

Concerns over Ukraine funding: The stopgap bill originally included funding for Ukraine to help Kyiv fight the full-scale invasion from Russia, but the funds were dropped after some conservatives raised objections during negotiations.

Democratic Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet briefly held up the vote on the bill after he objected over concerns about the lack of funding in it. Bipartisan members of Senate leadership released a joint statement committing to vote on further funding for Ukraine aid "in the coming weeks."

House Democratic leadership said in a statement that they expect McCarthy to bring a separate Ukraine aid bill to vote when the House returns.

Soviets started WWII allied to the Nazis.

So the US responded by killing civilians?
If you provide terrorists with money and weapons (as Russia/Iran did) they'll kill anyone they feel like killing. You know this much and so did Russia/Iran.
