    --
    I highly doubt this is for the Garuds- they already operate the TAR-21,CTAR-21 and GTAR-21. I'd assume this is for all the IAF personnel who currently use the INSAS ie MPs, ERTs etc



    Garuds and their Tavors:

    Tavor is a bull-pup. All the guns posted here are bull-pups.

    I think for IAF purpose, we can keep this as a stand alone thread.

    Well, in previous ages our steel was the best and was re-named to damascus steel.

    In the age of the gun, it should be us exporting not using someone else's.

    If for nothing, else because today's friends are tomorrow's enemies but brothers remain brothers.

    Do Indian armed forces top brass have any clue about the benefits of simplified logistics and benefits of economies of scale.

    Please bring a Robert Mcnamara over here.

    New Assault Rifle Push For IAF Garud Squads

    [​IMG]

    The Indian Air Force is learnt to have pegged up interest in its three-year hunt for new assault rifles for its special units (Garud), that should be compact, foldable, easy to carry, handle, operate, simple to maintain and with high range. The requirement joins a raft of tenders already active for other weapons including assault rifles for the Army, sniper rifles for special units (including the MARCOS), 9mm small arms for the Army etc. The Army is also in the process of replacing the INSAS rifle in service.

    The Garud commando force of the IAF currently operates with the INSAS and AK-47, and the new tender appears to be a move towards replacing those arms with new generation weapons in line with the other two special units of the other two services. The procurement of new small arms for the Indian forces is also in line with the overarching doctrinal move towards lighter, smaller arms with modular architecture allowing a greater number of accessories and easier storage, less maintenance (with possibility of simple on-field maintenance) and part replacement.


    The Pathankot terror attack has provided the IAF with margin to push for speedier acquisitions and equipment, though a detailed case linking the requirement to the attack is yet to be made out.
