Russian Vice Prime Minister Dmitry
Rogozin, who oversees the military-industrial complex, praised the
domestic weapons this week. In his words, Russian weapons are not
inferior to world's best standards and may sometimes exceed them. In
particular, he pointed out the sniper rifles, which are produced by a
private company supported by the Russian government. The company
"produces the best sniper rifles of different calibers in Europe," said
Rogozin without making any clarifications, Interfax reports.
The Vice Prime Minister added that
Russia currently conducts certification tests for its new gun, "Swift,"
which after a few months will be accepted for service to replace the
Makarov pistol. "This gun is superior to such samples as the Austrian"
Glock ", caliber 9 to 19, 18 rounds of ammunition in the magazine. It's a
pleasure to even hold it in your hand," Rogozin said..... MORE
