Field trials of Bofors carried out in Pakistan 

Exhaustive field trials are being carried out on two long-range ultra light howitzers in pokhran which the Indian Army received from the US after a gap of 30 years since the Bofors scandal broke out, an official said. 

The test firing of the guns is primarily aimed at collating and determining various critical data like trajectory, speed and frequency of fire of the M777 A-2 ultra light howitzers (ULH) which are expected to be mostly deployed along the border with China. India had struck a government to government deal with US last November for supply of the 145 howitzers at a cost of nearly Rs. 5,000 core.
