Infantry: August 7, 2000


The United Arab Emirates has a requirement for 100-200 sniper rifles in 12.7mm caliber. Designated Anti-Materiel Rifles, they would be fired more often at trucks, howitzers, or air defense weapons than at individual enemy soldiers. At least three candidates (Barrett of the US, Precision Rifles of Australia, and Accuracy International) will be tested.--Stephen V Cole
