India Develops Assault Rifle In 100 Days

Share on

INDIA has developed an indigenous assault rifle dubbed the “Ugram” in less than 100 days. Unveiled by the country’s Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO), the 7.62mm Ugram was developed by the Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) for military, paramilitary and police use. At around four kilogrammes, the rifle is more powerful than the Indian Small Arms System (INSAS) rifle commonly seen in use with Indian troops which fires 5.56mm rounds. With a 20-round magazine, the single and automatic fire Ugram has an effective range of 500m. Subsequently, the rifle will endure unforgiving testing and evaluation to assess its operational capability. shp/adj/dl (Pix:Twitter)
