    enforcement agencies, and civil defense markets in a number of markets, especially the Arab Gulf and Africa. Mr. Hussain’s statements confirm that POF has a noteworthy level of potential, one that could – if supported – transform it into an industry leading vendor.

    Long-term growth and success will be dependent on how successfully POF and its product offerings are modernized and brought up to emerging standards. Having signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Sir Meccanica, an industrial vendor specializing in providing systems for manufacturing, it seems POF is in the process of upgrading its production facilities. The current assault (and battle) rifle competition being held by the Pakistan Army could also result in POF managing a new rifle design, one that could fully supplant its legacy Heckler and Koch G-3 line.

    It will be interesting to see if the Pakistan Army’s assault rifle program involves a commercial offset clause. While it is expected that POF will produce the selected design under license, it would be different to see overseas vendors link POF into their respective supply chains. For example, as part of an offset package POF could be contracted to produce specific components for a vendor’s entire assault/battle rifle line. This avenue could potentially be another long-term revenue source for POF.

    I didn't say they did. But I think they did supply it to KSA and Iraq.

    Not against this sort of trade and this is going to be the much needed lifeline that POF desperately needed but I'd be much more happier supplying arms and ammo to professional armies.

    Complete BS. India didn't export any military equipment to ISIS.
    Last year India exported $330 million worth of military hardware, mainly to Asian and African nations.

    We were not selling these arms to ISIS or to parties in Shia Sunni conflict anyway but still this is how this business is. You cannot sell arms in a peaceful world. Why else you think US pokes its nose everywhere? :P

    Anxiously waiting for the day when our defense related exports would surpass our defense spending. Too much wishful thinking but surely doable.
