    You are getting confused by this picture for sure.

    LMG.jpg
    This is what I have told as classic case of dimwit yellow journalism. The shown picture of 5.56 LMG is infact OFB 7.62 LMG.

    OFB LMG.jpg
    Compare both the picture.

    Now in this picture from CRPF exhibit,

    CRPF.jpg
    we could see that there is one LMG beside the MAG7.62. Its a FN product which CRPF acquired back in 2013-14, if I remember well.

    Both are available bro. 5.56 belt fed was rejected by army though as they wanted 7.62 . In short the new 5.56 LMG never went into production.
    I think @Kunal Biswas also mentioned about INSAS LMG belt fed in the forum if he can confirm.

    7.62 one was undergoing trial not sure if they are inducted since many a times journos make mistake and it might be 7.62 MAG instead of LMG which is inducted.

    Israel had offered Negev LMG to army in August. So probably we are going for import.

    That is surely a typo mistake or image, LMG is only magazine fed INSAS LMG..

    The nomenclature for belt-feed is GPMG.

    On personal note, I always welcome the idea of drum magazine for INSAS LMG in past.

    Thanks I did read about BELT FED too and army said no for INSAS 5.56 belt fed LMG. So it's dead end i guess.

    What's happening with 7.62 LMG It will be inducted or import route ? Israel is offering Negev LMG

    Import of 44,000 Light 7.62x51 GPMG is a Rs. 5000 crore deal. Army will not allow OFB or DRDO to get this deal. It will be imported.

    If anyone ever feels like wondering how far metallurgy has come in the field of small arms, do be reminded of the fact that this Daniel Defense MK18 rifle carbine (chambered for the rifle-calibre 5.56x45 round), weighing in at 2.66 kgs empty...

    [​IMG]

    ...is actually lighter than this SAF Kanpur-made 1A1 SMG carbine that chambers a pistol-calibre 9x19mm round and weighs 2.83 kgs empty:

    [​IMG]

    Old-school terms like rifle & SMG, which were traditionally used to demarcate a 'light weapon' and a 'heavier weapon' just don't mean the same things anymore.

    #Update

    #DRDO-#OFB 5.56×30mm Joint Venture Protective Carbine (JVPC) spotted with Chattisgarh Police.

    Chattisgarh police placed order for 640 carbines & later CRPF, CISF & other state police units too.

    JVPC is currently under production & replacing old sterling carbines.

    Probably the first image of JVPC in active service. The policeman is on election duty in Jharkhand.

    Uttar Pradesh Police to stop use of point-303 bore rifles from today. The point-303 bore rifles have been replaced by INSAS and SLR rifles.
