The Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS) is an Indian-made howitzer that was test fired at a facility in Odisha’s Balasore. It is said to perform better than Bofors and Israel’s ATHOS gun. It was developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and produced by two firms – Bharat Forge and Tata Advanced Systems Limited. 2,000 rounds were fired with this gun in places like Sikkim, near China border and Pokharan near Pakistan border.
