 Indias military might will be on full display at the Republic Day parade, with some newly-acquired weapons and old war horses strutting down Rajpath in the company of military bands and with attack choppers and fighter jets roaring above in the sky.

In November last year, the Indian Army inducted its first howitzers three decades after Bofors guns.

The 155mm, 39 calibre ultra-light howitzers have been procured from the US under government to government Foreign Military Sales (FMS) and will be assembled in India by BAE Systems in partnership with Mahindra Defence.
