Czech Republic will buy sniper rifles in the US

28
The Czech Defense Ministry will soon purchase new Stealth Recon Scout sniper rifles in the United States, reports RIA News with reference to Novinky.


Sniper rifle (SRS), caliber .308 / 7.62x51.

“The Ministry of Defense plans to purchase Stealth Recon Scout rifles from the American manufacturer Desert Tactical Arms, for a total of 45 million crowns (about 1,88 million dollars),” the report says. - New weapon will be able to use two-caliber cartridges: 9,55 mm and 12,7 mm. "

According to the Prague resource, “the modularity of the rifle allows you to increase its tactical flexibility; by simple manual reloading, the weapon can be adapted to each of the two calibers”.

According to the representative of the Czech Defense Ministry, Jan Schulz, "the use of new weapons will increase the snipers' ability to accomplish the assigned tasks." He noted that "rifles with a caliber of 12,7 mm can be used not only for more accurate long-range shooting, but also for actions against military equipment and well-fortified ground points."

Along with rifles, software, optics and cartridges will also be purchased.

Schulz explained that “the new weapon is intended for sniper groups of the 4 th brigade of rapid response and the 7 th mechanized brigade”. It will replace the outdated Sako a Falcon rifles.

    Czechs are seen to live richly ... laughing But what about your own weapons production? After all, they had such traditions - “Czech Zbroevka”. The weapon was no worse than German. It is evident that the overseas owners, for the sake of globalization, that is, their own military-industrial complex, have ruined the Czechs this industry.

      Surprisingly, I did not hear something that mattresses would surpass the Czechs with small arms.

        They surpassed by advertising and money. Everything else is secondary.

      Well, yes, although for the sake of justice, during the time of CMEA, the main military-industrial complex was in Slovakia, and this is now another country, albeit in NATO.

      Well, why immediately be surprised?
      The Czech army is rearmament on its own CZ 805 BREN assault rifles, on its own CZ Phantom pistols. Yes, the Czech large-caliber sniper Falcon is good, but Stealth Recon Scout is better suited for professionals. Yes, and they did not refuse SVD yet. We buy some things in Sweden. As expected - price, quality and delivery time. Now the issue of new artillery systems and new infantry fighting vehicles is being resolved. Suggest! Maybe we’ll agree.

      In 1946, the plant was nationalized. The production of weapons on it was discontinued ... They produced motorcycles and scooters (the name Chizeta says nothing?). I read that in Brno hunting weapons are released ...

      And enlighten? :
      http://www.czub.ru/?cat=54
      Chekhov was interested in several hundred (up to 500) of these particular multi-caliber rifles ( http://deserttech.com/ ), incl. caliber 12,7x99because This type of weapon CZ has not been producing for a long time, and does not offer.

      ... The new weapon will be able to use cartridges of two calibers: 9,55 mm and 12,7 mm.

      A typo should be understood as 6,5h55 Mauser (.260 Rem), but the rifle can also use other calibers: .243 Win (6x52), .308 Win (7,62x51 NATO), .300 WM (7,62x67) and .338 LM (8,6x70) .

      In the article it is written, Falcon - are outdated. Everything American, in absentia is new and technologically advanced and while buying American weapons, you guarantee yourself stability (in a career / position), you will not be overthrown and not replaced if you are loyal to anyone you need.

    They just saved it, two million dollars is a small amount (especially the rifle is excellent), but it’s much more expensive to do your own, or maybe you bought it to stir something up on the basis of this rifle.

      I agree. And the fact that they stir up is necessary. Moreover, the fashion goes to bicaliber devices.

    Do not deprive the Americans of the ability to sell their weapons in any way. Even inside NATO, they bypass their block allies.

      Here I can not agree with you. With regards to small arms, all NATO states are buying weapons near their own, and not near US rosue. Example? The British - their own, the French - their own, Germany - their own, the Czechs - their own, Austria - their own, the Poles - their own. Heavy equipment? Yes! German or BAE Systems or firms associated with Russian companies.

    I am surprised that the Czechs buy sniper rifles from the Yankees, have the Czechs forgotten how to make ultra-precise small arms themselves, but I never believe it, rather they want to compare something with American crafts ...

    Made laugh laughing Develop your VPK? their military-industrial complex is developed so that many countries will never reach their military-industrial complex.
    By the way, there is a Belgian assault rifle SCAR SCAR-L SCAR-H in the arsenal of the American army. The Belgian office won the competition in 2004, 16 years have passed since then and the Americans still use it and still buy or manufacture it under license.

    Yes Yes Yes. About six months after the "comparison", we are waiting for the appearance of a new modular rifle from CZ in caliber 7,62x54, 9x39 and 12,7x108.

      For comparison, there is no need to buy weapons for 1,88 llamas of American candy wrappers, it is enough to buy from 1 to 10 pieces of weapons. If necessary, invest in our own production, finalizing your CZ 750 S1M2 designed for the NATO cartridge 7,62 to 9,55 and 12,7 calibers.
