Indian firm beats Israeli company to get deal for upgrading Army's AK-47 assault rifles
A four-year-old Indian wons company has emerged as the lowest bidder for a contract to upgrade a small number of Indian Army’s AK-47 assault rifles, beating off competition from an established Israeli rival and getting a toehold in the Indian small arms market, offi als familiar with the development said. Bengaluru-based SSS Defence has edged out Israel’s Fab Defense that produces tactical equipment and won accessories, and has upgraded Kshnikov rifles for the Indian Army. The Indian firm will upgrade an initial lot of 24 AK-47 assault rifles held by an army unit under the Jaipur-based South Western Command, with more orders likely to follow.

Defence startups are coming up and soon we'll be a major exporter much less just independent.
WE SHOULD START GIVING ALL SUCH CONTRACTS TO OUR OWN FIRMS BECAUSE IN WORLD OF GEOPOLITICS THERE IS ONLY ONE THING SELF INTEREST WHICH WORKS OUT. IF WE ARE DEPENDENT ON OTHER NATIONS TOO MUCH THEY CAN DO ANYTHING TO INDIA WITHOUT EVEN SENDING AN ARMY BY JUSYT RAISING THEIR PRICES

I can't describe the importance of self-reliant India in the Defence Sector, it is very important from every aspect [ Security, business, economy, technology e.t.c].
Just wait for 4 more years, ppl will go crazy seeing the effects of atmanibar bharat initiative. Specially in defence export sector, it will provide a lot of emplyment to indians.
Now it's time totally replace insas rifles.
AK's are still good rifles, at least India isn't using QBZ's ffs.

When it comes defence
Upgrading and technology are priorities so I think joint venture of both firms would be great
india has been using insas rifle which was old and need to be upgraded into good ones at least in northern regions
I already knew that Indian army will prome SSS DEFENCE private sector company. Hope SSS DEFENCE AK 47 upgrade became primary rifle of indian army. The only problem with indian defence industries is slow production. That's why private sector companies are necessary
印度军队将促进SSS私营公司的发展。希望SSS国防公司的AK - 47升级成为印度军队的主要步枪。印度国防工业的唯一问题是生产缓慢。所以需要私营企业参与进来
There are certain words
fixed before UP ions
The recent reforms in ordinance factories was a great step in Defence equipment modernisation. We will soon produce world class defence equipment, for local use and for exports.
Just give their sniper rifles a chance and let private Indian companies move in the defence sector, it can do wonders.

Let's be Atmanirbhar in this Diwali also and Boycott all Chinese products
Only Made in India products
India is capable of producing advanced indigenous assault rifles but our bureaucracy doesn't appove it.
This is what happens when u give pvt companies with professionals to make wons rather than govt employees hired on reservation.
Finally , this good company got a break.. although a small one.
But still no one talks about of Hindu temples, govt from 1000 years looting it. I have pledged to celebrate independence day once my temples are free.
Definitely there is a need for more home grown defence equipments...but this shud be done on pilot basis first and the oion of the forces should be considered while further expanding the contract..
There should be no compromise on the lives of our soldiers...
This should have been done a DECADE ago.

Great achievements. All we need is a tough law for traitors and criminals in our country.
Superb they deserve it for the hard work they been putting. Ss defence I hope they wil deliver quality work.
How many rifles will be upgraded?
Just 24 rifles will be upgraded what a shame
Proud of make & made in India !
Modi is that man which brings the words to ground reality and he is not like rahul and Sonia Gandhi who only barks and do nothing. We stand and support Modi ji
