    There is also a RFI for a light weight AMR (Anti-Material Rifle), but of a longer time frame.


    Looks like it is made for Barrett M107 (XM500? :)) :D

    Galil ACE23 fits well for this RFI.

    With the Galil having been 'rejected' by default in earlier trials due to single vendor (it had been the clear winner), this will allow it to 'fight' it out with OFB :D

    On topic, Punj Lloyd has already entered into a JV with IWI ... and Galil ACE's 7.62 x 51 mm has been impressive too, we may find this the first weapon under MII, coming in.

    That's a different issue. Wonder why the SSL cert of such an important website is not up to the mark to be recognised by all the browsers!

    Yeah.

    The 9 mm SMC is barely hanging on. We do not make it's ammunition anymore. And most have been withdrawn from Infantry Units, with few being held by others. They are deficient too, with INSAS 5.56 Mk 2 being given as replacement in interim.
