Army Ammunition stock limited Can fight war for 2 days to maximum 10 days CNNIBN Expose

CNN IBN investigation found that Indian army ammunition stock is so limited that in some cases it will last only for Ten days.

Since 2008 Army is telling this to top Indian politicians that ammunition stock is at critical level but nothing changed.




125 mm tank ammunition called the Fin Stabilized Armoured Piercing. Reserves for it in 2009 were just for 5.85 days

Armour-piercing discarding sabot (APDS) is a type of kinetic energy projectile fired from a gun to attack armoured targets.
APDS rounds are sabot rounds and were commonly used in large calibre tank guns, but have now been superseded by armour-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot (APFSDS) projectiles in such guns.
However, APDS rounds are still commonly used in small or medium calibre weapon systems.

The 122 mm high energy reduce charge used by the Arty. Stocks for it was just 1.27 days of war

The D-30, or 122-mm howitzer D-30 (GRAU index 2A18), is a Soviet howitzer that first entered service in the 1960s. It is a robust piece that focuses on the essential features of a towed field gun suitable for all conditions. The D-30 has a maximum range of 15.4 kilometers, or over 21 km using RAP ammunition.

With its striking three-leg mounting the D-30 can be rapidly traversed through 360 degrees

The 120 mm Mortar Bomb - in Jun 2008 this ammunition was available for just 7.43 days of war.

A mortar is an indirect fire weapon that fires explosive projectiles known as (mortar) bombs at low velocities, short ranges, and high-arcing ballistic trajectories. It is typically muzzle-loading and has a barrel length less than 15 times its calibre.

ammunition for the 155 mm illuminating gun is available for just 4.65 days of conflict.


The 155 mm SMK, smoke ammunition will last for 6.29 days.

Now one should ask the questions ?

Why India has to import them?

Why products made in India which are provided to Indian Army are not up to standards?

Government needs to make a law, get an order , start a company in India and supply them to Indian Army.

No Order if No manufacturing unit in India.
