The Indian Army (according to a just released RFI) is looking to procure assault rifles of 7.62 x 51mm caliber capable of being carried under water in marine and water bodies along with their accessories and attachments and brought to operational use immediately after coming out of the water. The weapon should have military standard picatinny rails along with reflex/holographic sights, night/TI sights, IR lasers and tactical lights.

Hope the HK417 gets selected by Indian Army.

Though doesn't say anything about the numbers in case of an order. May be it is exclusive for the IA's elite forces...

in a interview on 2010-01-12 ,Chinese tank expert told that Chinese made tank include their latest Type:99 can be destroyed by top attack weapons.Quote-"the top of the tank is still weak, so the top together with a general thickness of not very thick, sensitivity Projectile usually wear to 50 mm to 150 mm can play through. For the last missile in terms of sensitivity, whether light or heavy, are the defensive problems."
So Nag missile could easily destroy them,win the war for us.

HI Shiv,

Heard that JF-17 had done taxi trails with Chinese WS-13 Engine.

Can you cover some news regarding that.
Also compare our Kaveri with WS-13, to make us understand which is better in all aspects.

Thank you in advance

Why do they want this? They want to have a lot of things but justification is weak.
