    Either choose the Russian HMG or re-engineer the good old Browning. Stay clear of the GenDyn model. US made infantry weapons are great for use by gun clubs, lousy on the field. This is an age old problem from the WW1 thru WW2, Korea, Vietnam etc.

    Strange maybe to you, but it is perfectly normal for DRDO. The super dooper "scientists" over there, touch only "state of the art" mumbo jumbo which our politican don't understand.

    DRDO Conning the CONgress….. Strange isn't it???

    The gun that should be selected is this one
    http://world.guns.ru/machine/mg26-e.htm

    since it was shelved the cost of reactivating it willl be cheap as no one in nato uses this it, It could be possibly completely picked up for licence manufacture.

    Thank god its about time we got .50 calibers into the force in large numbers. That would seriously improve the war fighting ability in the squad level.

    Infantry small arms design and manufacture is not a low tech affair. It is a very challenging area of technology. German, Austrian, Swiss, Belgian and Italian small arms are widely acknowledged to be the best in class, while Russian small arms are hard to beat for the serviceability and ruggedness. For those who snark about DRDO's inability to design and make small arms, you should also ask the police departments in the US why they swear by the Glock 17/19/26 or HK MP5s, as well as the US military why they use Beretta/SIG Sauer handguns, HK-MP series, and expecially why the USMC grunt desperately wants to be rid of the M4 and instead use the HK416. Only the Russian military is self-reliant on indigenous small arms. Militaries all over the world (yes the US too) freely import and co-design small arms with foriegn makers (like the HK416 a joint US-German design)

    why not take a look at the desert tactical HTI 50 BMG? its a good gun with a bull pup config so recoil is reduced too. . .

    because they are looking for heavy machine guns, not a anti-materiel sniper rifle?
