Army launches hunt for 56,000 night sights for assault rifles


The Indian Army on Monday issued two requests for information (RFI) for equipping thousands of assault rifles with two different types of night sights to bolster the night-fighting capabilities of its soldiers, two officials familiar with the development said.

The army has launched a hunt for image intensifier and thermal imaging-based night sights for a total of 56,000 7.62X51 mm assault rifles, according to the RFIs.

The army wants 40,000 image intensifier-based night sights and 16,000 thermal imaging based night sights, the officials said. Read More
