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. Brilliant.

    and accurate at 300m.
  2. It was on 'current weapons' in a short clip on Sky News. It seems to be current issue with at least some of the IDF in Gaza - not sure whether SF or whatever.

    Seems a bit on the short side to me. Ok for tankies.

    It looks like a cross between the SA80 carbine and a Steyr AUG carbine.

    I doubt it's much better than the current SA80 incarnation now that H&K have played with it and made it what it should always have been.

    I'm right in thinking that the SA80 is ALSO accurate as hell at 300m?

    T.A.R. 21 - standard version intended for multirole infantry.

    G.T.A.R 21 - notched barrel version, to accept a 40 mm under-barrel grenade launcher.

    C.T.A.R. 21 - compact short barrel version intended for commandos and special forces.

    S.T.A.R. 21 - designated marksman version with folding under-barrel bipod.

  4. If it's smaller but just as effective, then it's better.
