    The Ordnance Factory of Tiruchi (OFT) has designed and developed an indigenous assault rifle matching the specifications of the AK47.

    "When put into use by our armed forces and other security agencies, the rifle will be recognized as pride of India. It has been indigenously developed and has all the features of AK-47,'' said A K Prabhakar, OFT general manager, in an interaction with reporters on the sidelines of OFT Day celebrations. OFT, one among 41 such factories in the country, was established 45 years ago on the outskirts of the city.

    To mark the contribution of the Tiruchi factory in developing the rifle, officials have decided to christen it "Trichy Assault Rifle,'' Prabhakar said. Field trials have been done for the 7.62mm caliber rifle with a range of 400 metres. "The rifle has been successfully tried by the Indian Army,'' Prabhakar said. It features a foldable butt and boasts of night vision device besides telescopic day vision system.

    OFT has also developed a hand-held multi-shell launcher. The weapon of 38mm calibre with a range of 400 metres could fire six shells at a time. It could be used for firing grenades and tear gas shells.

    Prabhakar said this was the first time that OFT was coming out with an "internal security weapon", or a riot control device in common parlance. "One batch of the device has been supplied to CRPF and many states have evinced interest in buying it for their police force,'' he said.

    Heavy Alloy Penetrator Project (HAAP), another ordnance unit and the only one in the country to produce anti-tank projectiles, has also received overwhelming response for its indigenous anti-submarine rockets.

    HAPP general manager B Pugazhendi said the Indian navy had placed bulk orders for the six-kilometre range anti-submarine rockets named RGB 60 developed by HAPP.

    HAPP had dispatched 12 units of RGB 12, another version of the anti-submarine rockets, to the Navy last year. "With inhouse research and development efforts, HAPP has also developed 120mm caliber and 125mm calibre MK-II anti-tank projectiles,'' Pugazhendi said.

    HAPP has chalked out a modernization plan for enhancing the production of MK-II projectiles. "Very soon, the blueprint for modernization will be submitted to the ordnance factory board that will in turn forward it to defence ministry for clearance,'' he said.

    Are there any pics of the gun...................
     
  6. well it took 64 years to match the specification of ak-47 then i hope it does not take another 64 years to make the bullpup design rifle for finsas.but it is a very good developement if the rifle could marry the penetration power of an ak-47's 7.62*39mm round with the accuracy of a m4's 5.56*45mm round.i hope this is not another improved version of ak-47 and a completely indegeneous design and also this could be inducted in the army and paramilitary forces soon.

    This one look like a very practical assault rifle, Seems to be quiet sturdy. Other specifications are out?

    Nice but what about the specifications guys, and unit cost too which will decide whether it is actually better or not.

    I hope that this doesn't take eternity to get inducted in favour of some firangi assault rifle. I like the hybrid look of it though.. a mix of M4 and AK-47. Nice going. Finally an assault rifle that can be comparable to the world's quality ones!

    The one on the left is the Trichy Assault Rifle.

    The grip [1] and butt [1] (folding stock of INSAS) are taken from the INSAS. The fore-grip looks somewhat like that of the Excalibur [2], Dragunov [3] or FN-FAL [4]. The side mounted scope holder with Picatinny rail is on the right, unlike Dragunov [5], where it is on the left. The magazine is that of the Kalashnikov [6] family.

    Compare the numbers above with the numbered pictures below:

    P.S.: Sorry guys. It was confusing to get it correctly ordered. Sorry if anyone of you were trying to quote me. Now I think everything is error free.

    Your Idea is right but over all looks are similar to SIG-551/556
