From Palm-size Drone To Sniper Rifle: Army Bolsters Ops With Advanced Weaponry In J&K
In a move aimed at enhancing the operational capabilities of the Indian Army in the challenging region of Jammu and Kashmir, airpower has been integrated into the special forces' operations. The deployment of cutting-edge equipment, including the "War Mate"-- a combat UAV that falls under -- the Loitering Ammunition Drone category, and the "Black Hornet Nano"-- a palm-sized surveillance drone, marks a substantial leap in the Indian Army's capabilities.

The "War Mate" Suicide Air Craft is a game-changing addition that empowers the Indian Army to effectively neutralise adversaries hiding in concealed locations or hideouts without posing any threat of collateral damage. The recent addition of the loitering munitions system to the Indian armed forces marks its entry into the inventory of advanced loitering munitions. These munitions, characterized by their lightweight construction and versatile mission capabilities, have gained prominence on the modern battlefield over the past ten years. Their flexibility allows for transportation by both land and special forces, facilitating deployment on various platforms and seamless integration with onboard systems.

On the other hand, the "Black Hornet Nano" Palm-Sized Surveillance Drone is a remarkable addition, capable of deep-diving up to 2 kilometres into hostile territories while remaining virtually undetectable due to its nano size. This advanced surveillance drone plays a pivotal role in providing critical intelligence and reconnaissance support to Indian Army units on the ground.

In addition to the aerial assets, the Indian Army has acquired the Indian "Dragnov" sniper rifle, further augmenting its precision operations. The 338 Saber Sniper Rifle, designed for engaging targets up to 1500 meters and beyond, is manufactured by the Indian company -- SSS Defence. According to the company, it is a heavy barrel, manually operated, bolt action rifle that is capable of shooting sub-MoA or better in the hands of a qualified marksman with match-grade ammunition.

Another noteworthy addition is the M72 rifle, offering a significant edge in close-quarter battles with its remarkable firing rate of 600-700 rounds per minute. This weapon is easy to handle and provides point-dot accuracy.

These state-of-the-art weapons not only enhance the Indian Army's operational capabilities but also underscore the nation's commitment to the "Made in India" initiative within the defence sector, highlighting the country's self-reliance and technological innovation.

Indian security agencies to get AK-103 assault rifles; To help in dealing with Naxal and North East insurgency
Three state governments are set to ink agreement for the procurement of the Russian Kalashnikov AK-103 assault rifles. “The proposals for the Ak-103 assault rifles are submitted, commercial talks are over and contracts are expected to be signed very soon with three State governments including Mizoram, Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra. These assault rifles are being procured for the police and paramilitary forces in these states,” a source familiar with the discussions confirmed to Financial Express Online.

According to the source quoted above, “Though the numbers being procured are not big, more and more states are expected to conclude discussion in the next few months. The deals for these assault rifles for the three states are expected to be firmed up in a month’s time as there is urgency for these rifles for the Para military forces.”

The deals are the State level close faster compared to the larger deals. The weapons and equipment for the Paramilitary forces is a State Subject.

The quick decisions taken by the State government help in expediting the process of procurement.

The recent Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh which claimed lives of 22 security personnel has played a critical role in plans to close the deal with the Russian company at the earliest. The Russian rifles will help the Paramilitary forces to fight the Naxals.

The orders going to be placed will be small, but are important as the Make in India AK-203 is getting delayed. This means, that the small number of assault rifles will come directly from Russia and once the factory based in Amethi starts functioning, they will be later manufactured in India.

More about AK-103

The AK-103 is a more modern variant of the world famous Russian assault rifle. The Russian rifle is expected to meet the requirement for several thousands of the assault rifles for the State forces. This version of AK-103 is already in use in Indonesia and Venezuela.

The Kalashnikov AK-101, AK-102, AK-103 and AK-104 rifles are the new and modern versions of the famous Kalashnikov AK-47 assault rifle. This was developed for firing 5.56mm and 7.62mm cartridges.

More than 7, 50,000 units of AK-103 assault rifles, the third generation of AK-47, are expected to be produced at the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) facility which is located in UP. The facility was set up in 2010, and once the production starts under joint venture between Russia’s Kalashnikov Concern and OFB – this will be the biggest ever.

As has been reported earlier, these rifles when manufactured in India will be for the security forces and after completing the orders in India can be exported to friendly nations.

The Indian government is keen that the assault rifle should have 100 per cent local content.
