New marksman rifles in the pipeline for Philippine Army

MANILA, March 3 (PNA) -- Additional long-range marksman rifles are in the pipeline for special units of the Philippine Army (PA).

This was confirmed by Army spokesperson Col. Benjamin Hao in an interview with the Philippine News Agency (PNA).

He declined to give the specific number of long-range markman rifles that are to be acquired but stressed it will be sufficient for all PA special units.

"We can't say (the exact number) as they are still undergoing study and the procurement process," Hao added.

The Army spokesperson disclosed that these new rifles will augment the Barrett sniper rifles that are in use.

Long-range marksman rifles provide Army units with the capability to neutralize terrorists or lawless threats at a distance beyond the range of the standard M-16 or M-4 rifles being used by Filipino military personnel.

These weapons are capable of engaging targets 800 meters to 5 km.(PNA)
