Russia develops assault rifle with the world’s longest effective range

Russia is developing a unique DXL-5 sniper rifle capable of striking targets at a maximum range of seven kilometers, Lobaev Arms CEO, Vladislav Lobaev said, RIA Novosti reports.
The assault rifles with the longest effective firing range to date, “Sumrak” or “Twilight”, also manufactured by Lobaev Arms, strike targets at a distance of 2,5 kilometers in confident firing and 4.2 kilometers in record firing.
“We are now working on an assault rifle and a cartridge with a record range of six to seven kilometers and for confident shooting – three kilometers. The preliminary name of the project is DXL-5. We have such products in this family as DXL-4 “Sevastopol” and DXL-3 “Retaliation.” There are no rifles with such a firing range in the world market for sniper weapons,” said Lobaev.
