WASHINGTON - BAE Systems has received a $542 million contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to provide 145 M777 155mm ultra-lightweight howitzers to the Indian Army through a Foreign Military Sale between the U.S. and Indian governments.

"We look forward to working with the Indian Army and providing the only battle-proven 155mm ultra lightweight howitzer in the world. The M777 will give the Indian Army superior artillery capability," said Joe Senftle, vice president and general manager of Weapon Systems at BAE Systems. "M777 will remain at the forefront of artillery technology well into the future through the use of technical insertions, long-range precision guided munition developments, and flexible mobility options."

India joins the U.S., Canadian, and Australian forces in gaining the proven pedigree of the M777, which delivers rapid reaction capability and decisive and responsive firepower in sustained combat conditions.

Work on the contract will begin immediately and be performed by BAE Systems and its suppliers across the United Kingdom, United States, and India. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in June 2017.

PRAGUE - Czech Minister of Defence Martin Stropnicky was symbolically presented with the keys to 26 Tatra T-810 flatbed trucks by representatives of Tatra Trucks a.s. during a ceremony last week at the Material Centre in Stepanov.

Between 2008 and 2009, the military took their first delivery of 588 Tatra trucks with eight design modifications which comply with defense specifications agreed two years earlier. The newly delivered trucks will replace the older vehicles and will be assigned to 20 military units.

Delivery of further trucks will continue until the end of May 2017 with the Czech Armed Forces receiving a further 40 T-815 heavy and medium trucks with container loaders, and 41 T-815 trucks for transporting PRAM 120mm mortars.

"Taking into consideration the current security situation, this acquisition represents a key example of how we are continuing to support the Czech defense industry. Local manufacturing capabilities are strategically important to us, be it ministerial, state owned or certified contractors," said Minister Stropnicky during his visit. The ceremony was also attended by the First Deputy Chief of the General Staff, Lieutenant General Jiri Baloun, and other guests.

The Czech Armed Forces are equipped with about three thousand T-810 and T-815 Tatra trucks of various modifications, including special armored versions used for foreign operations. The main advantage of the Tatra truck is that it comes equipped with the time-tested chassis platform which allows for the attachment of a variety of superstructures.
