AK103s were deliberately and malafidely rejected in favour of Bulgarian AK's on grounds of their slightly increased length due to the additional flash hider. They are known to be relatively more accurate than AKMS apart frm othr modificationsThese bulgarian Akms are top notch,much refined ones than the romanian ones used by RR.Ak103 along with romanian MD96s were there for the rifle trials back in 2003 oor 2004.But thhe deal was made in favor of Bulgarian AKms .
Any way now Bulgaria's Arsenal inc produces much better AKms than AK103s which comes with buit in quad rails ,conical flash hiders ,collapsible buttstocks etc.But CAPFs didn't find the usefulness of such upgrades and chose to go with the basic AK model ie SAM7 . :/
Carl gustav is much more accurate than rpg at all ranges,for its being a recoil less rifle basically.It is very good at anti light armor and bunker busting.The advantages you named are true but if you consider overall scenario,battles,war,ambush etc then Carl gustav is better than rpg.
I have read and heard from many army men ,that one weapon that make terrorist piss in their pants is CG.
In Iraq war,US special forces were issued CG,when marine saw its effectiveness then they made an urgent request for it,as a result of it a huge number of CG was bought for them from abroad.This tell us how effective it is.
So in the end CG is fine ,instead we should focus on providing various scopes for rifles ,right from red dot to 8x sights for ct ops.
Is belt fed LMG better or a Maag or Box type in Jungle environment? Wouldn't chance of belt getting jammed be more in a jungle due to mud and other stuff?Great inventory CoBRA! Would be even better if AK47s were replaced by AK103s that MARCOS uses. And INSAS LMG dropped for a modern, imported belt fed option.
Terrain does not matter.
Belt fed LMGs like Negevalso have magazine feeding option for such situation. Latest version Negev NG 7 has the stopping power of the Bren type LMG widely missed by CT forces using INSAS LMG. A dual calibre Minimi Mk 3 is also available which can fire both 5.56 & 7.62 NATO roundsBelt feed and Magazine feed have their cons and pros, For Magazine fed LMG is much lighter and can be carried for LRP and assault but at one time it can only shoot 30-50 rnds, Where as belt feed LMG has more firepower to pin enemy down at ranges but at the same time its not a suitable firearm to use in assault which means fire on move towards enemy ..
Jam can occur even in Magazine feed Rifle or LMG, One has to be trained to deal with the situation and know his weapon well ..
For LMG and machinegun in general belt feed is better. Box magazine have an inherit flaw. The spring must be strong enough to match the rate of fire of any firearm. Machinegun have a much higher rate of fire than the standard issued infantry rifle.
