The great buffoonery called RFP by the the Indian army . A 120 page RFP in which they want to buy snipers without sights and other add ons . Just read the delivery schedules they desire. Seems to have no understanding of manufacturing seems more like a rant of a toddler than a document from a professional Army

some years ago, when 'sniper with sights' tender was released, rifles that qualified failed the tender requirements because sights failed. if we go back and look for opeds at that time, some other fellow would have written an oped saying MoD should issue separate tenders.

opinions are dime a dozen, if the unnamed sources have such an issue they can always approach MoD. tenders have been cancelled plenty of times, what is one more.

or is it the case that Wire doesn't want this tender to proceed on these T&C. we don't know.

"the overall order will eventually be split between the two lowest bidders – or L1 and L2 – with one of them producing 2,55,128 carbines and the other the remaining 1,70,085"

Two different designs!!?. :playball:

The Wire is biggest buffon of all. The RFP is restricted means, its not available in open media, so no one is going to question their buffonary on it. But lets have a look at the RFI points here.

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION : .338 SNIPER RIFLE FOR INDIAN ARMY

1. Defence Procurement Board (DPB) has accorded Acceptance of Necessity (AoN) for procurement of Sniper Rifle as per details given below :- (a) Quantity. Approx 4800 .338 Sniper Rifles with Telescopic Sight and 78 Lakh rounds of Ammunation. (b) Category. ‘Buy (Indian)’.
Another RFP for 1000+ Night Sight under IDDM for Snipers is already out.

Are the sniper accessories like sights and all specific to a gun? Or can be used interchangeably in any combination with any gun?

that's what MIL-STD-1913, what is known as picatinny rail is for. it's not the case that scope itself has fixed picatinny rail directly attached to it, there are adapter rings in between.

IAF is quietly beefing up its standoff precision strike capabilities across the fleet.

https://www.aninews.in/news/nationa...ver-250km-strike-range-missile20221207144254/

These are the latest variant of Kh-59, the MK2 variant with an IIR seeker. Between , these can utilise the precise navigation services provided by our IRNSS constellation besides the usual Glonass.

Orders from NGARM aka Rudram-1 will be placed very soon.

IIRC 18 hrs was already achieved and we were going for 24 hrs. The requirement was 36 hrs or something.
I thought it was 15hrs before well if they changed engine and still got same endurance that's a letdown anyway whatever we get its better than nothing
