Such a small country doing big things in Afghanistan, for freedom, for alliance. Thanks for the photos btw.


The truth might be changed by victory...

Are these rifles adapted for the war in Afghanistan?

They seem short and adapted for urban warfare... The barrels seem too short for long range engagement in open deserts.

Nice pics tho.

These rifles are adapted by the Special Forces only for now to be tested in combat our forces are the first one to test them out in real combat this is done and resquested for/by the MOD so basically all depends on their results if they come out positive another 35,000-40,000 of them will be purchased (pretty stupid if you ask me to send in the special forces with a weapon not tested out before in combat but if anyone can pull it off its this unit and so far the results are positive )


Some info about the weapon taken from (wiki)


The ARX-160 is an assault rifle manufactured by Pietro Beretta S.p.A.. Developed for the Italian armed forces as part of the Soldato Futuro (Future Soldier in English) program, the ARX-160 has been launched in the year 2008 as a commercial weapon system independent from the Soldato Futuro ensemble, complete with a companion single-shot 40mm NATO low-velocity grenade launcher, called GLX-160, which can be underslung to the rifle or used with an ad-hoc stock system as a stand-alone weapon.
The ARX-160 departs from the previously issued Beretta 70/90 weapon system under several points of view. The weapon is composed of two receivers, both manufactured mostly in polymer, and operates through a short-stroke piston system. Feeding is through STANAG magazines.
