Kalashnikov is negotiating a joint venture in India


“Negotiations began at the beginning of 2015,” Krivoruchko confirmed. “At the moment, the issue is being discussed with both public and private companies.”

He noted that the total investment in the future of the joint venture will be about $ 100 million. "We expect to produce at least 50 thousand weapons per year at the first stage with the ability to increase production capacity in the future," the general director added.

According to him, "the Indian side," is primarily interested in the production of automatic weapons caliber 5,56 and 7,62 mm. The concern also expressed its readiness to “make changes to its products upon request of the customer” and “in case of success of the project, to transfer to its partner the most modern technologies in the field of small arms production”.

      What are some interesting technologies? We complain that we have to work on old machines.
      And the Indians are great - everyone slowly rowing for themselves - tanks, shells, planes, and now they reached the rifleman.

        horseradish inventors are Hindus, they don’t get anything special, they have such a culture and mentality that they would sing and dance, and not engage in scientific design activities. Which, however, is only at hand.

        Which without coordination with us are absolutely useless. They will do everything under license.
        This is one way of binding the state to itself.
        Do we sell them submarines? Yes. Are there bases in India capable of full-fledged maintenance or repairs to such submarines? I doubt it very much.
        This is a job for the future, which often comes at the expense of minute benefits.

      This is the general director of the Krivoruchko concern. Judging by the progress in the concern, the man is sensible, a clear antipode of his surname.

    “If the project is successful, transfer to its partner the most advanced technologies in the production of small arms.”

    It is useful not to forget about the interests of our country. I mean copyright protection. Do not overestimate how important it is!

        Only the holder of the patent will receive the money, and for each sold our automatic machine - everyone who works at the factory, as well as allies and logistics.

          If it is a joint venture, then the owners will receive money from the sales, and this will be Kalashnikov as well.

    And let's sell everything nafig! Sell technologies and developments, once again withdraw production from Russia. We have already been created and sold to China, the Czech Republic and Poland. Kalashs are already officially released in the states, they have survived. Maybe we will start producing "poplars" together with the Indians , from our stanets huckster.

        I am amazed at the Russian language, what a variety it has (as he understood it is not your "main" one), no matter how someone distorts the words and whatever mistakes they make, they are, in principle, understandable and readable in most cases.) and in most other languages, it won't work.)

        Good evening, Anthony (we have already arrived). At the expense of the capital letter, this is a nickname (they registered it on mile). It's not moaning, on the contrary, it is a statement of fact. As if the Americans are not watered and how they are not kidding, you need to take an example from them .Here they don’t give their technology to the side for anything - they sell only the final product (weapons) and they still have it at the service of everyone. We squander right and left. No matter how much history teaches us (one of the last examples is the Bulgarian MIGs and Polish alterations).

    Concerned on my view of positiv step.
    At the same time, the dates are poniat of the Chinese, 4th RUSSLAND has MANY VECTOR politicians.
    4 RUSSLAND DOES NOT put all the friends in one basket.
    4that if China is not consistent and appropriate in the friendliest steps of foreign politicians, to RUSSIA, then RUSSIA has a Chinese alternative to China.

    And the Indians, for an hour, do not produce AK? I heard something like that for a long time already. As I understand it, now we are talking about the production of a line of weapons that are good and different - the sales market in those parts is capacious, and it will not hurt "partners" to jump over the corn.

    We are growing more and more ties in military affairs with the Indians. It pleases. Both profit and jobs, and as they say "one head is good, two is better" ... With BrahMos it turns out well. They are finalizing the BrahMos-2 hypersonic. It's a good thing.
    Good luck.

    The more ties around the world,
    the more room for maneuver.
    I would like to see the AK with the cutoff line.
    And so that the trim levels would come from the factory.
    And we need to update the cartridge factories from scratch,
    to make any cartridge in sufficient quantity,
    in the shortest possible time.

    Yeah, it's not enough for us that the Chinese have flooded the entire market with their cheap AK-47s (by the way, of low quality, and this is a blow to the product's reputation), as well as former allies from the social. camps (Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland), and their license ended long ago, so they also decided to do well for the Indians, for the sake of momentary benefit. From Bulgaria, for example, the Kalashnikov concern has not been able to receive compensation for counterfeiting for many years, but here ... Truly, one's own bitter experience teaches nothing!

    The most interesting thing is that the Indians have recently been reluctant to buy finished products - give them production, expand the service, create a repair base! And there you look - "go home"! We have everything!"

    Pure Kalashnikov is not produced. In India, the INSAS (Indian National Small Arms System) small arms system was created, which should include a machine gun (assault rifle), a shortened carbine and a light machine gun. To date, only a machine gun (in the version with a fixed or folding butt) and a machine gun have been developed and produced.
    The weapons of the INSAS series are based on the design of the AKM or AK-74 Kalashnikov assault rifle, however with significant changes.
