Some Of The Kind Of Basic Infantry Equipment, Needed For The Indian Army Infantry, Police & Paramilitary Forces, That Should Be Procured
From The United States And Europe & License Manufactured In India, by the DRDO (Defense Research & Development Organization)
Modern BATTLE-RIFLES are of .30Caliber (7.62mm) or greater; as the cartridge have greater velocity and heavy power, to penetrate a
KEVLAR BULLETPROOF VEST, worn by practically everyone these days. India needs a powerful, .30Caliber (7.62x51mm) NATO, Full-Automatic-
Battle-Rifle for frontline troops and a powerful .44Cal(11.1mm)/.45Cal(11.5mm) Revolver/Semi-Automatic as a sidearm for the Officers and
Police! The .22Caliber (5.56x45mm), present Indian INSAS Rifle; should be handed to the local police & para-military, for domestic use!

The Barrett M-107 .50Caliber (12.7x99mm) ULTRA-LIGHT LONG-RANGE-SNIPER-RIFLE.
This ultra-light, long range, Anti-Material Rifle weighs only 13 Kg (28.5 lb); compared to the similar Indian Vidhwansak that weighs 29 Kg;
too heavy for a single soldier. The Barrett-M107, is light enough, to be carried by a single running soldier, ready to take sniper shots.

The New 6.5x55mm and 6.8x43mm Caliber Powerfull Assault Rifles CQC (Close Quarter Combat)
The 5.56x45mm Caliber has more range & accuracy than the 7.62x51mm; but does not have the stopping power. On the other hand, the 7.62x51mm round has the punch (stopping power);
but lacks the range and accuracy in the round. As a result, the new 6.5mm and 6.8mm caliber ammunitions were developed that has the range and accuracu of the 5.56x45mm round
and the knock-out punch of the 7.62x51mm Nato round. These new ammunitions have been incorporated into a few modern Assault Rifles such as the 'Grendel 6.5' and the 'Barrett .468' !!
