On March 3, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a Kalashnikov plant which is set to produce 750,000 AK-203 assault rifles for the army locally. These assault rifles will be supplied to the Indian Armed Forces.

The Kalashnikov plant is located in the town of Amethi in the northeastern state of Uttar Pradesh.

The plant licensed to produce AK-203s is jointly run by India’s Ordnance Factory Board and Russia’s Kalashnikov Concern.

The AK-203 is based upon AK-100 series assault rifles which, in turn, inherited many properties of the older AK-74 version. The muzzle velocity and reliability largely remained the same. However, its accuracy and ergonomics improved dramatically.

    “However, its accuracy and ergonomics improved dramatically”

    The purported inaccuracy of 5.45×39 and especially 7.62×39 ammunition is another pentagon perpetuated fakery, inside the lines of “Our weapons are more accurate and precise, theirs are more powerful but inaccurate. We are surgeons and they are barbarians”.

    Every professional shooter I’ve talked to / read about, swear that the accuracy of the AK family is no inferior to NATO calibers, in some cases superior under all aspects (for ex the US made M193 .223 bullet for the M-16 series, which NATO didn’t adopt in favor of the belgian made SS-109)

      Larry Vickers, a Delta force veteran, say in several videos than the AK accuracy in COMBAT situation, against COMBAT targets is good, much better than many say……

      If you shot a apple or a beer can at 200 meters, yes the M-16 or a G-36 can be better.

        “If you shot a apple or a beer can at 200 meters, yes the M-16 or a G-36 can be better.” only that a AK even in 7.62 can do the same and lets not start with the 5.45

    • Zionism = EVIL

      AK is the poor man’s equalizer and won every asymmetrical war from Vietnam to Afghanistan. It can take a licking and keep on ticking. Easy to maintain and clean.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    India would be better off investing in toilets and sanitation. Its military has proven to be a JOKE!

      India don´t won all battles against ……..but won ALL warsn against Pakistan!!!

        • Harry Smith

          Oh yeah! To start a war between India and Pakistan is a USA wet dream. Pakistan is part of the way and belt initiative and has a lot of Chinese investments, while India is China’s neighbor. It’s kinda double hit. Make China to loose it’s strategical investments in bring the war at the border of China. Hope both Paki and Indians won’t be so stupid to die for Uncle Sam growing profits.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Actually, the Hollywood fabricated “Jews” are more involved in goading India into destructive suicide war with Pakistan. The Indians used Zionist supplied SPICE ordinance to attack Pakistani trees and then got their asses shot out of the sky. The Americunt idiots want to arm India as a pipe dream “counter” to China. Jew agenda is endless wars and profit from the misery of others.

            You are a liar delusional Khusra. Pakistan is so badly shamed infront of the world that its making up fictional stories now to live in a alternative reality. Pakistan has suffered the second most humiliating defeat in History. The surrender of 100,000 Pakistani troops to India after India broke Half of pakistan 1971. Shame on you. America flies predator drones all over Pakistan and kills your people mercilicelly, yet Pakistan can’t even do anything, and why is that? because you are cowards. China has literally banned Islam and you are talking about IRON brother lol bahaha. CHinese have put 2 million Uighers in Prison.

    Modi thanked Russia for being India’s closest friend. This is a good rifle and the Armenian military is also using it for the future. Pakistan’s German licensed G-3 is two generations out of date.

    India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the launch of an Indian-Russian assault rifle production plant at Korwa, during a speech in the nearby town of Amethi on Sunday. The site is due to produce
    AK-203 Kalashnikov assault rifles for Indian security forces, according to TASS news agency.

    “This joint venture will be beneficial for us,” said Modi during the ceremony, adding that “at this moment I thank our nation’s closest friend Russian President Vladimir Putin for this venture.”

    The compound, jointly run by India’s Ordnance Factory Board (OAB) and Russia’s Kalashnikov Concern, is licensed to produce up to 700,000 AK-203s, as TASS reports.
