Armourer manufacturing plant? Dont you already have that?It is useful, because there's a whole ecosystem being raised from the ground. Was there even a armored manufacturing plant, small arms plant,
Small arms plant? OFB that useless? It produced your SLRs and INSAS. How is producing another foreign rifle under license going to help?
UAV assembly plant, artillery plant, missile assembly plant, etc. under the private sector before the recent K9, M777, IWI small arms plant, MALE UAV plant, etc? No, these plants were all raised within 5 years and we still have transport assembly plants, more armor plant, etc. coming up.
Congrats on producing a uav fuselage (under license in a JV).
Producing X-95 bullpup.
On assembling arty guns.
Whatever you say boss.They have come from module production to whole system integration and testing in a short period of time. These assembly line, etc. will eventually support the production of future whether it be DRDO programs or their own IPs.
Modules from AMCA, etc. will also come from these players. It's absolutely a big deal, maybe not for a developed defence industry like USAs, but for India it is.
