Hazira: Showcasing the success of Make in India in defence sector, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday took a ride in the L&T built K-9 Vajra self propelled howitzer here.

"Checking out the tanks at L&T's Armoured Systems Complex in Hazira," Modi tweeted along with a 10-second video of him riding in it.

After a gap of 30 years, the Indian Army recently inducted two howitzers including the K-9 Vajra howitzers that would take part in the Republic Day parade for the first time.

The K9 Vajra-T has a range of 38 kilometers and is supplied by L&T in partnership with a South Korean firm.

The contract for the K-9 Vajra was initiated after the Modi government came to power in 2014 and was completed in two years.
