Now that both TAR and AK-203 will be domestically manufactured, we desperately need some domestic manufacturing of AR style rifles.

I don't think it will be very difficult for ARDE guys to copy an AR-15/10 design which can be passed down to a private manufacturer like Bharatforge to manufacture.

Even the MCIWS in 7.62*51 mm caliber with a MLOK handguard can be a good supplement to the 144k Sig-716s (if MOD does not go for future Sig orders) to equip the rest of the Infantry.

No more sigs order after the second batch of 72k most probably

Hey guys,
Be sure to tune in to Major avinash's instagram channel. He will be uploading a long duration video today evening where he will be stating the facts and grim reality of current Indian army. It will be a hard pill to swallow and may irk the top brass but it had to be done. Everything that has been discussed in this forum regarding the pathetic condition of Indian SF will be highlighted there according to his practical experience.
Peace!

I’m happy he’s doing it, but sad part is that MoD doesn’t care about serious modernisation, even when we have a lot of domestic manufacturing for those equipments.

Imo the Para SF is much bigger than it should be. Around 5k Guys cost of equipping them like Americans would be roughly $12,50,00,000 (Expecting 25k spend per soldier) The size of Para is comparable to US Green Berets who have a world wide presence. The complete French SOF Command has 3k guys, German KSK has 1500.

The cost source is: https://www.tierthreetactical.com/special-forces-loadout-gear-selection-and-total-costs/
His total was $37,729 i reduced it to 25k$ for the sake of it assuming getting indian products might cost us a bit less.

Any source for your claim that Para SF has 5k members ?
