    The Bangladesh Army inducted the Oerlikon GDF-009 35mm anti-aircraft guns on 13 October 2019. The newly inducted air defense system was test fired at the Nidania air defense weapon firing range shooting down a jet shaped target drone with ease.

    The firing was conducted under the arrangement of Adhoc 48 Air Defence
    Artillery Regiment, an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) release said
    here.

    Chief of Army Staff General Aziz Ahmed witnessed the firing as the chief
    guest while high military officials were present.

    General Aziz expressed his satisfaction at inclusion of the anti-aircraft
    gun like Orlikon Rudder Control gun in Bangladesh Army’s list of weapon.

    This modern technology-based weapon will strengthen the Bangladesh Army’s
    air defence system and enhanced its capability to a great extent specially in
    providing air defence protection.
