It is meant for the China border , because it has been created very light ( using titanium ) so that it can be easily transported from location to location even in difficult mountainous terrain of himalayas to fire at enemy . So if fighting with China breaks out it will certainly be used .

The firing in Pokhran will be used for target practice only in the initial stages , to test the howitzer with Indian ammunition which has not been used in the howitzer until now .
