The ultimate indoor rifle is in the works.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) has asked its armed forces to acquire a rifle capable of firing off bullets on its own, the Times of Indian said on Friday.
It quoted the top brass of the IAF as saying the proposal was to be considered at the earliest.
The proposal was first made to the Indian Air Forces (IAFs) at the end of last year by a senior official of the Indian Army.
The proposal was rejected by the IAAF and the Army.
This time around, the Indian military is looking at a new rifle that can be fired by itself and is capable of shooting out a high rate of fire.
The rifle would also be capable of using a range of different ammunition.
