- Government is also evaluating 155mm/52 self-propelled howitzers wherein three Indian vendors, including two private sector companies, have been selected for trials of their equipment.
- AK-203 - 750,000 rifles to be manufactured locally by Indo-Russia Rifles (OFB). It will be the standard weapon of the Indian Army replacing INSAS and AKM, expected to follow on orders from paramilitary and state police.
- Sniper Rifles - 5000 new sniper rifles in .338 Lapua Magnum to be procured to replace old Dragunov SVD.

The Indian Army chose Eurocopter Fennec under a US$550 million contract in the summer of 2007. Under this contract, 60 helicopters were to be supplied from Eurocopter in fly-away condition and the rest were to be assembled by HAL in India. This order was later scrapped due to allegations of unfair field trials from one of the competing company, Bell Helicopters. A fresh tender process was initiated later in which Eurocopter Fennec and Kamov Ka-226 were shortlisted for user trials. Trials were completed and Kamov Ka-226 was declared the winner and about 200 helicopters are to be made in India under the "Make in India" initiative, Indian Army has planned to replace obsolete Chetaks and Cheetahs with it, until the arrival of HAL LUH, as the later would be ready for its first flight only by 2017.
