    India's Ministry of Defence (MoD) has concluded negotiations with Italian arms manufacturer Beretta for the import of 177 sniper rifles for its Marine Commandos (MARCOS), the special forces unit of the Indian Navy (IN), for an estimated INR200 million (USD2.98 million).

    Official sources said the contract for 177 Sako Tikka T3 TAC 7.62x51 mm bolt-action sniper rifles, which were selected over the British Steel Core Designs SC-76 Thunderbolt model, is likely to be signed in August.

    The tender includes 100,000 rounds of 7.62x51 mm match-grade ammunition. Industry sources said rifle and ammunition deliveries would be completed within 6-8 months of the contract being signed.
