    they are not aks, they are the new insass.

    "...The INSAS rifle is broadly based on the famous Kalashnikov AK-47 action, but with many modifications. The basic gas-operated action with long stroke gas piston and a rotating bolt, as well as the stamped steel receiver, are generally the same as in modern Kalashnikov rifles. However, the gas system is fitted with a manual gas regulator, similar in design to that found on FN FAL rifles, as well as a gas cutoff. The charging handle has been moved from the bolt carrier to the left side of the forearm; it is similar in position and design to German HK G3 rifle. The selector / safety switch is located at the left side of the receiver, above the pistol grip, and allows for single shots and three round bursts. The rifle is fitted with a side-folding carrying handle, and either a solid or side-folding metal buttstock. Furniture can be made from wood or polymer. Standard magazines are made from semi-translucent polymer and contain 20 rounds. Longer 30-round magazines of similar design are available for the INSAS LMG but can also be used in the rifle. The sights consist of a hooded front, mounted on top of the gas block, and a diopter rear, mounted on the receiver cover. The flash hider is shaped to accept NATO-standard rifle grenades. INSAS rifles can be fitted with AKM-style multipurpose knife-bayonets...."

    Some of those old guns weren't much worse than the modern ones.

    The oldest gun I can see here is the Bren (the top-fed World war II machine gun that a guy in a black turban is loading)- but the Brens are still in service in some British army and Navy units! They are actually more reliable than the M60 or FN MAG that the IDF is using in a similar role.

    Old weapons are not necesserily worse than the new ones. The Canadian rangers still use World war I Lee-Enfield rifles, and no one is complaining. And here in Israel the latest small arm developed is a bullpup conversion of the World war II American M1 carbine, and it makes a better police weapon than most modern submachineguns.

    one more thing: i personally think that there should be principles in the any army. such a shaved face. no moustach etc.. just a personal thought. and privates must have only helmet. not religional or cultural hats.
    but i still say Indian army is another great army in the world.

    Mr.Serdar,

    There is a lot of cultural difference between east and the west. In India moustache is seen with pride. Those who has a great moustache is respected by the society. moustache represents pride and manhood. It is said that a great moustache will create fear in the minds of the enemy because is shows the character and courage of a person. In Indian Army and IAF it is compulsury to have a clean shaved chin (exception is granted to the Sardar's (Sikhs) on religious grounds). In the IN and Indian Coast guardthere is no such restriction.

    is SARDAR something similar to SERDAR? because my Turkish SERDAR name is SARDAR in other Turkic countries like Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan etc... Just wondering, is there SARDAR also in India

    Indian Army guest-troops march down the Champs Elysees avenue during rehearsal early on July 11, 2009, in Paris, in preparation of the Bastille Day parade where the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will be guest of honour. France has been building closer ties with India, an emerging economic giant, and is seeking contracts to supply weapons and civilian nuclear technology
