    I thought it was by OFB. But whoever did it, it is commendable. In long run, whether we go towards the Grendel round or not, but we should not run around like headless chicken in matter of platform.

    Even we faced those initial issues. Good thing is that within the timeframe, most of them were rectified. Hopefully now its working fine as we could see its cut down versions in some tanks too.

    BOSS is totally indigenous in material aspect. As far as specs is concerned, please find it below. It was deployed as a pilot project in LOC and LAC, so no commercial pricing available as of now.

    The rifle launched 36M does come with a prefabricated launch tube. The hand thrown version of same can't be used as a rifle launched one unless one uses the cup mechanism and a blank cartridge. So basically it comes in a two mode version. One is to be thrown by hand and other launched from tube...

    DRDO and OFB has just said what British used to say about the Mills grenade. Defensive role with fragmentation and offensive role with concussion. Its no wonder for DRDO/OFB to use these terms as we are used to license build the 36M till date. But from user perspective, it doesn't matter which...

    I already mentioned it on previous post where I clarified by tagging @Bleh that its not the offensive or defensive mode which makes Shivalik a multimode grenade. Its the launch mode which makes it multimode in role. So no point in getting hyper over non issue.

    The tag of defence professional under your profile name did elucidate respect initially, but seeing how you respond to things make me believe you to be a big farce. So Einstein, could you kindly enlighten us on what is the biggest contribution of defence professionals like you on programmes...

    @Bleh Don't confuse in Multimode being Offensive mode or deffensive [email protected] No need to get hyper on every issue and call out any research and development as DODO, no matter how trivial it may look to you. Multimode Shivalik grenade in MULTI MODE in its use. The same grenade could be used...

    India would sure get TOT for S-400 system, but not for the missile and the seeker. The TOT would cover the source code part only, as it is a condition of the deal that S-400 should seamlessly integrate with Indian air defence system for layered protection.

    Patkas does provide good protection against direct hit 7.62 AK round due to its full metal structure. As far as helmet is concerned, its not a DRDO product. Its an pvt entity outcome.

    Those are ballistic helmets, not armoured helmets :biggrin2:

    Can't compare Patkas with Helmets. Direct hit protection by Patka is better then most ballistic helmets. As far as new helmets are concerned, they are the same one used by NATO forces and its coming out from the same manufacturer.

    First 50,000 lot are from TATA Advance Material. As far as news goes, DRDO has developed another prototype of light weight BPJs which could even withstand 7.62 NATO round. Can't vouch for the news though. Would only know when the first lot of delivery completes by next month.

    Modernisation of Indian Army Infantry

    I've seen some joint Indo-US exercises where IA prefer to repel down a helicopter sans gloves and pads as opposed to their US counter part. When asked the reason for that, the simple answer was, it stops our natural movement and decrease our efficiency in situations like this. You might have...

    IA also does make use of MKH/PA-1 which is PASGT type Kevlar helmet, but in limited number. You might have even noticed that when it comes to body armour, IA uses much less armour then compared to most of the world armies. For example have you ever seen elbow, knee or groin armour with any...
