The Indian Army has started strengthening its preparations between China and China along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh. Under this, the Indian Army has decided to buy 72 thousand American assault rifles. Order has also been given by the army for this. All these state-of-the-art weapons will be purchased from America.
After the completion of the first batch, an order has been given by the Army for the second batch of this gun. Earlier, the Army has received 72 thousand American assault rifles which are being used in Northern Command and Operational Area.
The most special thing about this rifle is that its range is up to 500 meters. It has a bore of 7.62mm. Also, its bullet is bigger than other guns, which is more deadly. The aim of this gun is very accurate and a bullet can stack the enemy. This is the reason why it is considered a shoot to kill rifle.
Let me tell you that earlier 72 thousand Sig 716 assault rifles have been received by the Indian Army, they are being used in counter-insurgency operations. This has strengthened the fight of security forces against terrorism. Earlier, India had signed a Rs 700 crore deal to purchase 72,000 rifles from the US under fast track procedures.
These new rifles will replace the INSAS currently being used in the military. The INSAS was prepared by the Ordnance Factory, a weapon manufacturer for the military in India. According to the plan, about one and a half lakh Sig 716 assault rifles will be purchased from the US, which will be used by the troops deployed on Operation and Line of Control against the terrorists. This weapon will help in fighting terrorists.
