Coimbatore Could Look At Manufacturing Small Arms: Army


Engines that can withstand low temperatures and run on different fuel with better insulation are among the priorities of the Indian Army, said the vice-chief of the Indian Army staff, Lt Gen Sarath Chand. He pointed out that Coimbatore could look at manufacturing small arms and ammunition for them.

Speaking at a seminar on ‘Solution to problem statements, Make in India to Made in India, and to win India’s wars with Indian solutions’ here on Friday, Lt Gen Sarath Chand said, “We keep talking about fighting the western and northern borders. While people and media hype that we should be worried about the western border, it is the northern border that is tough to fight.” He added, “We need vehicles with engines that can operate at cold temperatures. The terrain is different too.”

Sarath Chand said we wanted to teach Pakistan a lesson when the Parliament was attacked. “And when started moving troops, we had to halt mid-way because we felt we did not have the enough arms and ammunition.” He added, “Even during the Kargil War we went scouting across the globe for arms and ammunition.” Read More…
