Along with that, Army jawans were also seen speaking about the tough operations carried out in the terrains of Jammu and Kashmir and how the commandos prepare for them.

One of the Indian Army commandos while speaking to Republic TV apprised about the newly-acquired assault rifle from the United States and further informed how it helps in advancing their combating capabilities.

"This new generation rifle has been inducted in the Indian Army recently from the United States. It is very lightweight and easy to carry with heavy firepower which enables us to fire at least 850 rounds in one go. The rifle is also effective to attack enemies up to 500 metres", he said.

Further speaking on the existing rifles in the forces, the Army commando said that both the weapons are of the same weight, however, the effectiveness of this weapon is more than the former one and also provides an auto-fire option.

Adding to it, he said that the new weapon comes with an additional dagger which will help in facing the enemies at close proximity during an assault. Apart from that, the assault rifle also has a night view feature which will help in such operations carried out during the night for magnification.
