UAE small arms manufacturer CARACAL, launched two new high-performance weapons at IDEX 2021 in Abu Dhabi.
The unveiling of the CSA 338 Semi-Automatic rifle highlights CARACAL’s growing technical sophistication. Through effectively merging two rifle concepts – a designated marksman rifle (DMR) with a 338-calibre sniper rifle into a highly precise semi-automatic weapon, the company said the rifle reinforces its strong focus on innovation.
The CSA 338 boasts another regional first in having been fully designed, validated, and manufactured in the UAE. The elegant weapon features high-caliber ammunition and builds on the success of the bolt action CSR338 sniper rifle – fusing it with a DMR concept applied to an 8.6 x 70-caliber weapon.
Together, the weapons represent significant technological and manufacturing advancements for supply to the local and international markets. CARACAL is part of the Missiles & Weapons cluster within EDGE, an advanced technology group that ranks among the top 25 military suppliers in the world.
