India's Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) is displaying its L70  artillery gun at the Defence and Security 2017 exhibition in Bangkok.

The gun has been designed and developed for the Indian Army. BEL had earlier won a Rs 575-crore (US$89 million) order for the L70 gun upgrade in a global tender issued by the Indian Army.

The L70 gun upgrade includes electrical servo drives, electro optical fire control system and video tracking.

BEL is expecting to attract customer interest for the L70 which is a Swedish origin wheeled light artillery gun meant for air defence but can also be used on land targets.

Other BEL products being showcased include Land and Naval Radars, Communication Equipment, Night Vision, Electro Optic equipment, Naval Fire Control Systems, Naval EW and Sonar Systems, Simulators and Air Defence Weapon System.

Also on display is the Coastal Surveillance System developed by BEL for the Indian Coast Guard to provide maritime security to ports and installations and help prevent small vessels from sneaking in via the sea route.
