Bangladesh to acquire 155 mm howitzers

04 October 2017

Bangladesh’s military procurement agency, the Directorate General Defence Purchases (DGDP), has issued a notice to foreign vendors to submit bids in support of a programme to procure artillery for the Bangladesh Army.

The notice was issued by the DGDP in late September and outlines a requirement to acquire 155 mm light-weight towed howitzers. An important requirement is to be able to transport the procured howitzers by fixed-wing aircraft.

To support the procurement, the DGDP said it requests foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to supply it with technical offers, brochures, manuals, and price lists. No details about the number of systems or the value of the procurement were disclosed by the DGDP, although the requirement is thought to cover 18 howitzers.
