Armament Research & Development Establishment (ARDE), Pune developed ”Trikaal” Corner Shot Weapon System (CSWS) has undergone trials by Rashtriya Rifles of the Indian army.


The lightweight rifle is made of composite materials and is multi-caliber, capable of firing both 5.56 and 7.62 rounds.  Two different versions of CSWS are being developed—one to mount and fire 9 mm pistol and the other as a platform for 40 mm Under Barrel Grenade Launcher developed by ARDE.

Once the evaluation trials are over, the rifle design would be offered to a public or private sector industry for manufacture as per the Government’s decision, and then made available to special forces like the National Security Guard (NSG), Army and police units.

The corner shot rifle, which enables a soldier to fire at 90 degrees or at an angle from behind a wall without facing a terrorist or a target was first developed in Israel. India is reported to have bought some rifles for anti-terror operations.
