The total contract with Heckler & Koch is worth EUR 168 million (USD 177 million). The weapons will be delivered over some 10 years as set out in the 2014-19 multiyear budget law by the Direction Générale de l’Armement (DGA).
The breakdown of deliveries is as follows:
38,505 units will be the HK416F Standard version and 54,575 units will be of the HK416F Short version. 5,000 units are supposed to be delivered in 2017. Other accessories and various components, as well as training and support services will run for some 15 years as well.
1 Lakh/rifle+sights will only be possible with an OFB product. Reflex sights don't come cheap.
The new tavor 7.62 will be interesting as IWI has a local manufacturing unit and they would definitively bid aggressively to land the contract.
