India has created its own ASMI submachine gun as an alternative to the Israeli Uzi

In India, they announced the creation of the first self-developed submachine gun. This was reported by the press service of the Defense Research and Development Organization of India (DRDO).


The Indian ASMI submachine gun was created under the Make in India program to replace the existing 9 mm pistols.

DRDO reports say ASMI will be an alternative to Israeli Uzi submachine guns.

The prototype created during the last stage of testing fired about 300 rounds. Its sighting range is up to 100 m.

According to the latest data, the Indian ASMI is chambered for 5,56x30 mm. The Ministry of Defense believes that the tests carried out are already enough for the new submachine gun to be introduced into the troops.

Its rate of fire is named - up to 700 rounds per minute. How many shots in this mode can it withstand weapon, not reported. The mass of the submachine gun is about 3 kg. For comparison: the mass of the basic version of the Israeli "Uzi" is 3,5 kg without the store.

DRDO notes that such weapons will be effective in anti-terrorist operations, in close combat with the enemy.



DRDO:

The Indian-made submachine gun has increased ergonomics, several Picatinny rails, the ability to switch to single firing, a retractable stock, and low recoil when firing. The submachine gun was developed in accordance with the requirements of the General Staff of the Army by the Research and Development Center in Pune.

For reference: Pune is an Indian city in the west of the country with a population of about 4,5 million people, and is one of the centers of the Indian military industry.

      stop Wait, wait yes ... It's worth looking into.

      Indians, what, have decided to "reward" everyone with such 3-kilogram "fools" instead of pistols (officers at least), or are we dealing with incorrect presentation of information?

        The previous one, which is MSMK, they wooed the special forces, and they chose from the PP of their design and the Israeli Tavor. which, whatever one may say, is a weapon of another class. So there is no half a liter for sure - you won't figure it out

                  In fact, there are a lot of historically traditional alcoholic beverages in India.
                  Different. And products of cooking and fermentation and distillation.

                  Here are just a few I found:

                  - Beer
                  - Jandia
                  - Lugdi
                  - Mahua
                  - Caesar
                  - Kasturi
                  - Arak
                  - Taati
                  - Callou
                  - Toddy
                  - Give a damn
                  - Desi
                  - Daru


                  Of course, only the name can tell about the character of the drink "beer"and then indirectly, and the rest should be studied, and better - as a naturalist-naturalist drinks

                      Well, in terms of "love of cleanliness" ... wink Indian cuisine is, in general, something with something, so many spices, spiciness - Personally, I have never met anywhere else. They are used just in order to minimize food poisoning.

                        In England, in their restaurants, the dishes are not at all so spicy - they have adapted to the tastes of the locals. And in small eateries "for their own", yes, there is fire in the literal sense of the word. But paradox is delicious belay

                        The Indians themselves say that Indian cuisine is not too spicy. Sharp for Pakistanis, but really sharp for Bangladeshis. But for us they all look the same, so .... I ate Pakistani lamb at a Pakistani friend's, very tasty. Indian food - in the area of ​​southall and wembley is quite authentic, and in other places - already under the European taste. By the way, Cobra beer goes well with it.

                        Unlikely. The states are quite self-sufficient, in some people there are more than in European states. They will live completely without each other. In some of them they die of hunger, and in others they live well. But no one tried to secede and drive their raw materials for export on their own. (And there is nothing else)

                        Buddhists and Hindus, in my opinion, are jealous and, accordingly, one should not strive for something. Well, the leadership of the states is not profitable to lead their independent states - with their level of corruption, they already live well, and political competitors are cut out physically - the people are tough and cruel

      5,56x30mm MINSAS - India-made cartridge - for India only! The cartridge is quite "peculiar", on the one hand, a rather high initial velocity of the Bullet (~ 600 m / s), on the other hand, its very small mass (~ 2,6 g). In fact, removing the hydrodynamic effect - the stopping effect is not very high. For what purposes in general to develop weapons under this cartridge, I personally do not quite understand, in fact, and whom to arm them with! The Indians, as always, cheerfully went their own way in an unknown (as well as themselves) direction.

          Greetings Albert soldier ... Very difficult to comprehend - The Mysterious Soul of the Hindus laughing laughing laughing The police very rarely use Weapons at a distance exceeding ~ 15m. And you correctly noted that a stopping action is important for the police, even a conditional criminal who is mortally wounded by "this patron" can do a lot of things ... until the moment when he "realizes" that he is mortally wounded! In connection with this, I wrote, I am completely unclear for whom and for what tasks, Weapons for this patron.

            Yes, for sure to arm the crews. The tankers are there, the flyers. Bad analogue of our AKSU. And they have nowhere to go - they release the cartridge, but there is no one to sell it to. So they get out.

    Judging by the photo, it is somehow "not licked", everything sticks out in all directions. And the "stars" on the screws, what if you have to unscrew or tighten in the field?

      How many Indians I have met, they are all "sticking out in all directions"!
      But in their houses there are purely gypsies!

    It seems to me that 5,56x30 mm is the same useless cartridge as 5,7x28 mm and 4,6x30 mm.

    Large-scale replacement of 9 mm for this whistle?
    Probably the main argument was:
