    The single most important difference is its receiver is machined and single piece compare to its earlier version in service and also in British and other nations as well, The butt-stock design will see change in next few months ..

    As part of ongoing joint training between troops #IndianArmy and #Bangladesh Army at #BRC, Danapur Cantt, Lecture-cum-demonstration on room intervention, clearance drills and hostage rescue was organised. Both the armies immensely benefited. The visitors were also given exposure in rock climbing and rappelling in order to ingrain skills for scaling houses, top entry into buildings where terrorists have taken a hostage. The contingents shared the dynamics of operating in Counter Insurgency & Counter Terrorism operations

    Validation Ex #Sampriti17, two week #JointMilitaryTrainingexercise #IndianArmy and #BangladeshArmy focused on terrorism & enhancing synergy and interoperability during conduct of such joint tactical operations. The joint exercise of house intervention demonstrated during the final validation showcased the determination of the two Armies to work closely with each other and share their expertise #IndianArmy #BangladeshArmy

    Why are they wearing this type of gloves,with no spacing for fingers?
    Doesn't it obstruct while pulling the trigger?

    These are not gloves, but gunner mittens. They do have generally a flap in palm to fire a weapon with them being on. Some tactical models do have separate space for the index finger along with thumb.

    I don't like seeing our flag on the front side of the helmet,it should be placed on the side of shoulder or below the name of the soldier.
    I think we should re design the whole uniform

    I think, it's proud to wear flag on forehead front.
    And it looks really cool to me.

    It seems army trying to scuttle the ofb rifle. No rifle in the world can fire continuously 2000 rounds with out any stoppages.

    Similar test should be conducted on foreign rifles as well.

    Few layman questions... gurus pls answer.

    1. Usually soldiers would carry 100 rounds(peacetime) of ammo. Why anyone would carry 2000 rounds unless it is used as a machine gun.

    Usually GPMGs would fire such a large quantities of ammo.

    2. We were one few countries who replaced LMGs with assault rifles modified as LMGs. What are the chances that similar things are planned for Bren gun as well. We have some 50k brens if I remember correctly.

    In US, till this year they had used M16 as AR and M240 (versions) LMGs. But they realized that M240s are heavy and soldiers carrying M240 are becoming primary targets.

    3. Are we looking to replace GPMGs with 7.62*51s. Is it possible to change as GPMGs are used on vehicles, pill boxes, squad automatic guns and what not. Can 7.62*51 will be able to do that!?

    4. How difficult is to convert a Mag fed gun to belt fed gun!?maybe this is already requested but not publisized.

    MG 42 barrels were to be changed after 250 rounds of full auto fire(without any stoppages) and 400 rounds in extreme cases.

    5. Maybe Army is looking for "test till they break thing". What is the recommendations for barrel changes in Bren gun!?

    6. Is it theoretically possible to fire 2000 rounds(from an air cooled gun) in full auto without any stoppages!?

    Looks like they are firm that they won't let the INSAS go for next decade too. They don't want to leave INSAS but still be cry baby about it.
    2000 rounds, What OFB? No Battle rifle will be able to survive that, they won't survive 1000 rounds

    According to kunal biswas, the 7.62x51 one has different roles than INSAS 1c. INSAS 1C is set to become the main rifle
