Gepard GM6 Lynx .50 anti material rifle....

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Peter - How do the ballistics compare with a Barrett or other .50BMG weapon?
     
  2. Is there really much need for another one of these rifles? I would have thought the Barrett and AS50 would be enough

    Still, it looks pretty impressive.
     
  3. looks like its built to the sme high standards of the AK47 ! :) so there lies the answer I guess for yet another ? and probly 10 times cheaper to produce and possible more reliable :)

    I can't find any video of the grandaddy of all FBG's the Mauser 13mm anti tank rifle of WW1, Bovington Tank museum and the Welch Regiment museum have both got one, but I'm pretty sure they wont let me borrow it
     
  6. Love the Saffa laws which mean they can't over-amp gun export for offensive means "peacekeeping" my ass!

    By the way, anyone here got any experience using 12.7mm reduced range ammo? Only a few people manufacture it. Happy to PM if anyone wants to know why I'm asking/go off-the-record
