    I always feel T shirts half or full are good for operation comfortable too in our environment.
    They take less space and easy to maintain.

    Arsenal seems to be the favorite pick this season.

    The second “near-term” project is the “lightweight small arms technology” project. This involves building rifles, carbines and machine guns from lightweight polymer cast material. Even the ammunition is cast from plastic, to reduce weight. US firm, Textron, is already working on this technology. It would partner an Indian firm to develop and build small arms for India.

    However in the future you guys will be getting the best of both worlds!

    Assuming MOD is serious about replacing the Sterling Carbines, then the CAR 816 could be inducted as well.

    Carbine, Rifle, DMR, LMG, based on single platform with lesser modification is most welcome.

    Surprisingly the AR 15 is remarkably well placed in this category. Eugene Stoner was a genius!

    Do you think these Are in Field Operation Now because I never seen them used in Any Operation by the Indian Army in J&K Region or North East Region. This Looks like a License Produced FN MAG. Which is Good Squad And General Purpose Machine Gun used by Many Countries Around the World. Pakistan uses MG-3 Which is an Excellent Machine Gun Along With G3 Which is An Excellent Assault Rifle India Needs a Belt Fed Machine Gun and Assault Rifles that can Compete with our Enemies.

    The Guns Must have Frozen Up by the Cold but Still MG3 is still considered one of the best Machine Guns in the World by Many People.

    MX4 has / had lot of problems during operational use with bsf but since it is foreign weapon no media raked it up nor did the armed forces cry over it for long. The matter was swept under the carpet.

    True we even deducted the money from the amount to be paid as It had around 5% rate of defective ones during testing and high rate of failure when inducted.

    INSAS/AKs whatever is available is in use now .I think it is going to be replaced soon a proposal was underway sometime back acc to an article I read sometime back.

    MX4 makes no sense with regard to our SMG requirements. The buttstock is solid plastic which hampers movement when trying to reload. A simple foldable stock would have done the job.

    Absolutely right either a 5.56 carbine or AK derivative will do the job. Considering those trying to infiltrate will be likely to have AKs as well and may be bullet proof jackets. There is no point in keeping our forces in any sort of disadvantage in that situation.
