The Indian Army is set to receive a fresh batch of nearly 8,000 AK-203 assault rifles manufactured at the Indo-Russian Rifles Private Limited (IRRPL) facility in Amethi, Uttar Pradesh. This comes after the successful delivery of the first batch of 27,000 rifles produced locally under the joint venture.

India has become the first country outside Russia to manufacture the AK-200 series assault rifles. This signifies a significant step towards self-reliance in defense equipment production.

The AK-203 rifles boast a 7.62 mm caliber and a firing rate of 700 rounds per minute. With an effective range of 500-800 meters and a lightweight design of 3.8 kg, these rifles offer a perfect combination of firepower, accuracy, and portability for soldiers on the battlefield.

Once the Indian Army’s requirements are met, the Indo-Russian venture has the potential to supply these rifles to paramilitary forces within India. Additionally, export possibilities to other countries are on the horizon, making the AK-203 a promising addition to India’s defense exports.
