New Ukrainian anti-materiel rifles
The Ukrainian company Snipex, specializing in the production of heavy anti-material rifles, has announced the adoption of two new design by the Ukrainian armed forces. The T-REX and the ALLIGATOR are weapons chambered for the 14.5x114mm cartridge, and each rifle weighs 25 kg.
The T-REX is a bolt-action single-shot rifle in a bullpup configuration with a lock equipped with 3 rows of bolts lugs (13 lugs). In order to facilitate carrying, the weapon is equipped with a barrel-mounted transport handle. The stabilization of the T-REX, apart from the classic bipod, is provided by a folding monopod at the bottom of the stock.
The weapon can be equipped with a muzzle brake with 4 or 5 ports. The optics are mounted via a standard MIL-STD 1913 picatinny rail. The rifle's length is 1800 mm, its effective range is slightly below 2km, its maximum range is slightly below 7km.
The older brother of the T-REX, the ALLIGATOR, shares some common features with it, such as the design of the bipod and monopod, and a transport handle located on the barrel. The ALLIGATOR, on the other hand, is a classic rifle, fed from a 5-round detachable box magazine.
The rifle is 2000mm long and has the same performance as the T-REX.
