MILITARY ties between Indian and American defence forces are growing further in the middle of a conflict with China as the US Navy would be providing three 127 medium caliber guns from its own inventory to urgently equip warships of Indian Navy as part of a Rs 3,800 crore deal. India has issued a Letter of Request to the US Government for acquiring eleven 127 mm medium caliber guns which are to be equipped on the large-size warships of the Indian Navy including the Visakhapatnam-class destroyers.
As per the new plan, the LoR issued to the American administration and the first three guns to be provided to the Indian Navy would be from the American Navy inventory so that the Indian warships are fully equipped at the earliest, Government sources told ANI.
