    Is this the one a variation of the above?

    MAG guns are a type of medium machine guns mounted on armoured vehicles.

    That order seems to have been already placed, I remember seeing component tenders for MAG.

    Probably not the new one, and no news of the new one passing trails..

    5.56 LMG belt fed INSAS was the logical way forward . This was on card for long bro but rejected few years ago and then 7.62 LMG RFI was issued by army.

    That's FN MINIMI, not OFB product.

    judging from shape of the cartridges and links (of belt) i think it's still 7.62 x 51mm not 5.56 x 45mm,seems (a) either they do have a 5.56mm version of this machine gun but they just mistakenly put 5.56mm in pic of 7.62mm one or (b) they don't have any such 5.56mm version they just mistakenly wrote it down there next to actual 7.62mm LMG

    and there are enough OFB sponsored journos, who would have informed the public if there was a 5.56 belt fed LMG in the works. i also keep a track of tenders, only tenders available were for belt feed links was for 7.62 not 5.56.
