This is a thread dedicated for discussion, analysis & observations regarding the various Firearms, Electronics & Protection equipment used by Indian (as well as foreign) combat personnel. Even those pieces of equipment that have not yet been adopted by any force can be put up for discussion so one can keep track of developments in the field across the world.



So any RFI (Request For Information) that the Indian Military/Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) put forth, any new Gun, Optic, Helmet, Vest, Armor technology, Night-Vision equipment, Radio communication gear or Ballistic Eyewear...anything the forces have, are planning to get, or something you think they ought to have - it's all up for debate & opinion.

Para SF with GTAR and Tavor Tar 21 with folding bipod
In the pic:
1. TAR 21 stands for TAVOR assault rifle of 21st century.
The TAR-21 is the standard version of the Tavor. By changing some of the components it can be converted to any version, except for the Micro Tavor. The TAR-21 is usually fitted with the MEPRO 21 or MARS reflex sights.
2. GTAR also known as Tavor GRANADE launcher, which is a TAR-21 fitted with underbarrel grenade launcher and associated sights. In Israeli service the M203 is use. In Indian service the Turkish T-40 grenade launcher is used which replaces the forearm and covers the barrel.

I'm so getting a Tavor next year. ;)
don't. Shot it this year, it's not the sliced bread it's touted to be. For the money, there are better options out there. I was hell bent on getting one, after shooting it, don't feel like it.
Don't buy stuff without shooting it.

I don't see a grenade launcher anywhere. And there's no STAR-21 either. :unsure:

What's interesting though are what appear to be cameras worn on the helmets of the first three.
