Atri ji, does the use of आ 1) implies 'an absense of' or 'without' in which case, आददे यश =/= takes back, it may mean something like 'does not give yash' or...

Agree there. Dragunov SVD was the 'best for us' and in most cases is likely to remain so. What I was thinking of was M82/M107 class weapon used in all sort of settings.

rohit, it was after reading some part of these discussions that I began reading about SVDs. I have a lot of respect for this weapon now and for the way it is deployed presently.

For future though it seems IA could get even better results by having a bigger program for Snipers.
