A REVAMPED version of the British Army’s rifle has been hailed one of the world’s “most lethal” weapons by military chiefs 20 years after its manufacturers received criticism over its poor performance.
In April, the Ministry of Defence announced an initial £5.4million would be pumped into the SA80 to make sure troops “have the right equipment at the right time”.
The new SA80 A3’s enhanced accuracy, new durable hard-wearing material to improve camouflage, a lighter weight and more comfortable grip are just some of the new features of the weapon used by 5,000 soldiers.
As a result, the super-weapon has been added by military chiefs.
