About the (F-INSAS) System:

  • The units of the rifle, which has a range of 300 metres, will be manufactured by an India-Russia joint venture.
  • A rifle-mounted holographic sight with a range of 200 meters has been provided for target acquisition.
  • A helmet-mounted night vision facility has been provided for infantry. The helmet and vest can protect from 9 mm ammunition and AK-47 assault rifles.
  • A hands-free headset has been provided for communication with command posts and other elements on the battlefield.

For the survivability of the infantry soldier, a ballistic helmet, ballistic goggles, bulletproof vest, elbow pads and knee pads have been provided in the system.
