Bangladesh Army uses the KRISS Vector Gen II 9mm sub-machine gun purchased from USA in 2017. On the other hand the Indian Army uses the IWI X95-S SMG, indigenously built at the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) as Zittara SMG.
KRISS developed the new Vector Gen II. Chambered in the very popular 9mm cartridge, and designed to use Glock magazines, the new Gen II Vector is the next step in one of the most innovative firearms to enter the market in recent history.
The OFB Zittara (Israel Weapon Industries X95-S) SMG is a Bolt Action and Gas Operated rifle that shoots 9mm Luger ammunition. With a maximum capacity of 32 rounds, the Israel Weapon Industries X95-S SMG holds significantly more than most other SMG’s of the same calibre.
We compared the basic weapons used by the Paracommando Forces of both neighbouring armies. Both are world class systems as you will see.
