Another abomination from the stables of Darra, Pakistan
Captured from slain Gayzhi in recent shopian encounter
It seems to an AK with M4 style sight+carry, a G3 style handguard and a charging handle
Combined with a drum Magazine

They are indeed, investing in small arms for indian army doesnt make any sense aa we have already sealed deal for our future assault rifles,
With the indian army and small arms in general the only thing that you cant say is "sealed the deal" lets see what comes out of the US NGSW

If SSS Defence already has state of the art P-72 carbine in 5.56x45mm then why are they contending for ARDE's carbine!
Just asking
Profit maximisation, their CEO replied to one of the comments regarding why the companies name that was submitted is Stump Scheule LMT, he said that the company of the erstwhile JV still exists and they’re using it for such partnerships with DPSUs and Stump Scheule Somappa for their own products. SSLMT is fully owned by SSS Defence itseems.

You are in the Himalayas, the same wildly unreliable, unfamiliar, and difficult Himalayas. And you're fighting ridgeline to ridgeline.

What will be your caliber of choice and weapon too!?
You mention fair points. But like you said about inventory maintenance, don't you think that it would be hell for the stores to have AKs, SIGs, TARs, INSAS, etc. at a macro level?

As for your question, I believe usage would be of 7.62 X 39 mm calibre rifle? A carbine when engaged in an urban scenario at best?
