    The country’s premier weapon factory has equipped the national armed forces with the first indigenous ‘Made in Pakistan’ sniper rifle, PakistanTribe proudly reported.

    The Chairman of Pakistan Ordinance Factory (POF) Lieutenant General Mohamma Ahsan Mahmood proudly announced on Thursday that the manufacturing of country’s first sniper rifle was completed.

    “We have manufactured the first sniper rifle at POF. Previously all sniper rifles used by security forces were imported from abroad. Now Alhamdulillah we can export Made in Pakistan sniper rifle to other countries,’ Ahsan told correspondent.

    One of the technical staff at POF informed PakistanTribe‘s correspondent that this sniper rifle was a result of hi-tech capability of Ordinance Factory. “A powerful lens with night vision technology makes its use easier both in day and night times engagements. Now they can trace and target the hidden enemy with a weapon made in their own country,” he added.

    POF Chairman also revealed that POF had manufactured many other latest weapons of small and large caliper. “We will exhibit all new weapons in coming Defence Exhibition.”

    Not to forget that POF is run by the finest military and civilian technicians and managers. POF is currently considering to bridge the technological gap by replacing old plants and machines from export earning and commercial sales instead of seeking grants from Government of Pakistan.

    The management has also prepared a three phased plan to change the working model of POF and make it self-sustainable in the next decade. Moreover, even at its current pace, 80 per cent of weaponry used by all security and paramilitary forces is prepared by POF.
