India’s elite Parachute Special Forces (Para SF) are evaluating the IWI ARAD assault rifle as a potential replacement for their current M4 rifles. This move signifies the Para SF’s commitment to staying at the forefront of combat effectiveness.

The IWI ARAD is designed for adaptability, catering to infantry, special forces, and law enforcement units. Its key feature lies in its caliber convertibility. The rifle can seamlessly switch between the standard 5.56x45mm NATO ammunition and the .300 Blackout (BLK) round, offering greater flexibility for various combat scenarios.

The ARAD prioritizes customization for user preference. A full-length Picatinny rail on the upper receiver allows for the attachment of various sights, scopes, and other mission-critical accessories. Additionally, M-LOK rails at strategic positions (3, 6, and 9 o’clock) on the handguard provide further options for mounting grips, lights, and lasers.

The ARAD incorporates a telescopic buttstock, enabling soldiers to tailor the rifle’s length for optimal comfort and handling. This adjustability is crucial for diverse body types and operational environments.

Furthermore, the IWI ARAD utilizes a short-stroke gas piston system with a regulator. This design enhances reliability and ensures consistent operation under harsh environmental conditions, a critical factor for the Para SF’s demanding missions.

The Para SF currently relies on older M4 rifles. The IWI ARAD’s convertibility, modularity, adjustability, and reliable operation position it as a strong contender for modernization efforts. The Indian Army’s evaluation of this rifle reflects its dedication to equipping its special forces with the most advanced weaponry to tackle future battlegrounds.
