Piracy Alert, Indian Navy Wants Sniper Rifles

With the ever increasing task of combing the Arabian Sea for pirates emboldened enough now to operate bare miles off the coast of India's Lakshadweep islands, the Indian Navy has invited information from rifle-houses for a potential purchase of new sniper rifles "for usage in a predominant maritime environment". It should be noted that this potential purchase is not for the Navy's MARCOS, which already use Dragunov and H&K rifles.
