New firearms production line opened, infantry to get boost
The Bangladesh Army's infantry corps are being modernised and expanded as part of the Vision 2020 programme for the armed forces.
In this phase a production line was opened recently by Prime Minister Begum Khaleda Zia to manufacture automatic firearms such as the Type 81 automatic rifle and Type 81 Light Machine Gun (LMG). An agreement between Bangladesh and China was signed in 2003 for the local licensed production of the Type 81 series of firearms.
