Indian Army facing shortage & delays in arms acquisition

Indian Army is facing shortage and delays in acquisition of weapons. It needs basic items like assault rifles, high-end anti-aircraft missile systems and ammunitions. Army’s present ammunition inventory can barely last for just four days if India sustains an all-fronts war, whereas it is still using vintage Anti-Aircraft guns and there is no signs of active deals yet. There is seen an immediate requirement of at least 1.60 lakh battle carbine, 16000 7.62mm light machine guns and 3500 7.62mm sniper rifle by the Army.
