    Who said that it has a different role, I and dead against its induction ..

    But again, Its better to have indigenous over unreliable, unfamiliar imported hardware ..

    I saw a jam occuring in Ghatak in this video at 01:40.My guess is this is a failure to extract from chamber,as the bolt carrier is stopped at the half length of magazine so new cartridge might get extracted from magazine but stopped in between from feeding into the chamber due to this failure and tip of the new round is hitting on the end of former stucked cartridge.

    Visual Representation of what might've happened there.This gun is Ruger Mini-14.

    Alternatively it could be a failure to feed as well,in which the round extracted from magazine doesn't get properly aligned to the chamber and stucks between the chamber and bolt carrier group.

    Visual representation of what might've happened in this case,Rifle is Zastava M70 (Yugoslavian/Croatian/Serbain variant of AKM)

    Absolutely but i would rather see the army get their hands on the aar first rather than the mk1c. Not to belittle mk1c but i think aar deserves a chance.

    There are many reason, including personal experience ..

    I have stated all in depth in last few pages, Its not feasible to reproduce all that in one post ..

    The translucent magazine help the user to know about the remaining rounds in the magazine but in irregular warfare where terrorist hidden among common people can also see it ..

    Judging by forefrip, there seems to be three different distinct version of JVPC. Any input on that?

    That Excalibur MK1 looks lot like Improved 1B1s that came in 2013 ..

    Unless one carefully see the gas block, I am sure there are other difference too ..
