India orders 72,400 SIG Sauer rifles for IA
Rahul Bedi, New Delhi - Jane's Defence Weekly
13 February 2019
India's Ministry of Defence (MoD) signed a contract with small arms manufacturer SIG Sauer on 12 February for the supply of 72,400 assault rifles to the Indian Army (IA).

IA sources said delivery of the SIG716 7.62 mm rifles, which are being acquired under the MoD's Fast Track Procedure, is expected be completed within 12 months.

The new rifles will replace the locally made Indian Small Arms System (INSAS) 5.56 mm assault rifles that entered IA service in the mid-1990s, but were declared "operationally inadequate" by the army in early 2010.

Senior IA officers told Jane's that the SIG716, which is also in service with the US and European armies, will be issued to frontline IA units deployed on counter-insurgency operations, as well as to troops deployed along India's disputed borders with Pakistan and China.

They better start eating their Wheaties now, they are a heavy rifle. I love mine but the thought of soldiering around with a decked out rifle sounds no fun.

Which is the better: a good friend, a good heart, a good eye, a good neighbor, a good wife, or the understanding of consequences? It is none of these. A warm and senitive soul which knows the worth of fellowship and the price of the individual dignity, this is best.
