Is there a plan to manufacture Sig716 in India either in the private sector or OFB?. Any latest news on this?. The 7.62 * 51 calibre bullet is a powerful round, no doubt but is it meant for the China border for mountain warfare or will it be issued to troops on the Pakistan border also. What is the exact role envisaged for the 7.62 * 51 rifles. Counter insurgency role is ruled out for the 7.62 * 51 rifle, I guess?.Any word on a make in India deal for the SIG 716? This is supposed to be the rifle for frontline troops, and India requires way more than 70K. I'm guessing all other troops will get AK 203s. I haven't heard anything about the Caracal, maybe more 203s will be made to fill that requirement.
