    Armourer manufacturing plant? Dont you already have that?

    Small arms plant? OFB that useless? It produced your SLRs and INSAS. How is producing another foreign rifle under license going to help?





    Congrats on producing a uav fuselage (under license in a JV).

    Producing X-95 bullpup.

    On assembling arty guns.
    Whatever you say boss.

    OFB needs competition that's why. It can continue to be mismanaged, produce expensive poor quality arms, not meeting deadlines, etc. because they're the only ones doing it. Either they restructure or they get eaten alive by competition like Hindustan motors, simple.

    Sure, OFB controls everything from small arms to tank production. Sector is opening up. L&T the largest infrastructure company in India is the first in the sector and not last to have a major armor production plant.

    They will produce the whole system, eventually.

    It's not just the X95, but a whole line of their small arms.

    It's a good experiance to assembly and test such a system considering they've never done it. Big victory by Mahindra in the sector.

    Considering the red tape, slow nature of Indian processes, they're doing a hell of a job. The next level is to produce their own IP or join in on more DRDO programs like ATAGS.
