The Ugram Rifle is a new indigenous assault rifle unveiled by India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) in January 2024. Developed in collaboration with Hyderabad-based defense firm Dvipa Armour, the Ugram Rifle is designed to replace the ageing INSAS Rifles in the Indian Armed Forces. This rifle, weighing less than 4 kg, boasts a 7.62 mm calibre with a 20-round magazine and an effective range of 500 meters. It features both single and automatic firing modes and is constructed with steel for durability. The development of the Ugram Rifle aligns with India’s goal of self-reliance in defense technology and represents a significant milestone in the country’s defense manufacturing capabilities.
