Mods, requesting you all to rename this thread for 'DRDO and DPSU news and discussion'. For PSU purpose we should have another independent thread.

Seems arde is developing a new lmg
As tender is issued for

1.cartg ball 7 . 62 x 51mm m80 nato

2.supply of receiver assembly , receiver assembly as per spec no drdo arde lmg
3.breech block assembly
4.development of hand guard for 7.62x51mm light machine gun (lmg)

.. again some work is going with jpvc too

Can you give link? I think ARDE might be producing additional copies of OFB-DRDO GPMG which was modification of OUR FN GPMG.

Anyhow after Israeli order any indigenous development is practically dead.

It is inducted? We don't need American bombs anymore??
These are dumb cluster bombs

The CBU 105 is a smart sensor fuzed cluster bomb

DRDO has already demonstrated MMW sensor based bomblets

So common sense dictates that most probably they are working to miniaturise and improve it further inorder to package them into a cluster bomb

As part of a TD project smart munitions to defeat enemy armour from its vulnerable top was initiated long time back

These technologies developed for the same included

1.Explosively Formed Projectile (EFP)—A copper liner serving as antenna for the sensor in the search mode and forming a single projectile in the attack mode.

2.Detonator Arming Safety Device for activating EFP warhead

3.Efficient capsule ejection system

4.Highly compact MMW sensor

5.Rotatoil parachute for stabilising the sub-munition and scanning the ground target

The technology was validated for 120 mm mortar rounds.

No idea on current status

That's heartening to learn our progress in missiles and ammunitions including smart weaponry is quite extensive .

We are in catch up mode. My comment was in that regard. It's good that we are catching up fast and in all domains of weaponry.

In a decade or two we shall have new innovation coming out of this vast extensive base which we have build.
