High velocity cartridge is what is ideal for infantry, high stopping power at shorter ranges is good for COIN ops in Urban Warfare.
What kind of operation you think army undertakes on day to day basis ?

How much short is short range you are referring to ?

Why did army decided to dump 5.56 NATO round ?

To please Ruskies. And Army needs to finish terrorism permanently instead of fighting it daily.

Yep...used by Philippine Marine commandos
The Philippine Marines Corps does not use M3 grease guns or their derivatives. These are enthusiasts displaying these modified guns. The Philippines has a vibrant small arms industry both legal and illegal manufacturers.

In USA, we should better partner with Sig Sauer as our mainstay weapons with ToT, that way in the future this step will definitely help us, since Sig Sauer will get more orders from US military and get more competitive and more innovative as well. We should definitely partner up with them. Not to mention the reputation they get if gotten orders from Indian military.

Other companies like bushmaster is also a good option, especially their ACR

Another advantage with a partnership with SIG SAUER would be that they have their own electro-optics division and has its own ammunation division too, so any company partnering with them would have the advantage of offering all three of these things together, just like how IWI sells guns, ammo and optics together albeit using different brand names.

Seeing the info on the RFI I think army either wants a modular carbine
OR
OFB ka "modular carbine"

Nothing yet, Pakistan Army and Indian Army both were one single Army under British Indian Army, so they both are carrying forward their traditions of boomer culture in military.
