Defence News, Army on shopping spree, India’s Special Forces to get Deadlier | Defence News India

After conducting “successful cross-border surgical strikes” against terrorist hubs, first in Myanmar in June 2015 and then in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir in September 2016, India is now fasttracking some long-delayed modernisation of the Army’s Special Forces to make them even more lethal and mobile for clandestine warfare.

Defence ministry sources on Tuesday said “restricted” tenders have been issued to select foreign arms companies for acquisition of new assault rifles, sniper rifles, general purpose machine guns, light-weight rocket launchers, tactical shotguns, pistols, night-vision devices and ammunition.
