    Interesting looking thing, that. The way they've been talking about it, it is going to be a weapon like the Bushmaster ACR, except with a barrel that supports multiple munitions without having to be switched out with another.

    Internationally there are 2 types of Multi-Caliber Weapons (MCW) -

    Type 1 - They're just like any other firearm but they're internal mechanism is
    capable of being chambered with different calibers of ammo.

    Type 2 - These MCWs always have 2 barrells, 2 magazines, and 2 different
    chambering mechanisms,,,for firing 2 different types of ammo at the same time.

    The DRDO MCW is a Type-1 gun, so thats why its not as bulky as the Korean Daewoo K-11 MCW, which happens to be a Type 2 MCW.

    The DRDO gun would only be marginally bigger and heavier than Tavor TAR-21 and look similar to Fabrique Nationale FN2000 assault rifle in appearence. The only sluggish thing I noticed is the magazine's breech block, it looks ugly and protruding, hope it'll be re-designed.

    This kind of threads become brochure wars.

    Has Army defined what it wants???

    Products can be developed only when Army comes out with its requirements.

    This kind of projects should be given to companies like TCS who have professional managements.
    An IT project is not suited to a government organization.

    Optics projects should also be given to private sector, as these require high-tech manufacturing and strict quality controls.

    And government should seriously start semiconductor manufacturing industry in this country. It is very risky to import all chips.
