FALCON is a modern medium-caliber 12.7 mm sniper rifle for ground and special forces designed in particular for combat destruction of light AFVs and special technical targets up to the distance of 1,600 m. The rifle may be also used for protection of strategic civil and military objects, i.e. airfields, power stations, storage facilities etc.
FALCON is a single-loader, repeating rifle with a Mauser-type locked breech and shortened (bull-pup) casing. The basic rifle layout is supplied with a day-type sight (ZD10x50) or with an optional passive night sight (ZN 6x).
For emergency use without optics the weapon is equipped with mechanical sights. As an option, a two-round magazine may be fixed to the weapon. An efficient muzzle brake and a spring-loaded recoil pad secure high recoil shock absorption, thus adding also to the rifleman‘s safety.
The rifle consists of two detachable parts, a weapon casing with a sight and a barrel with a bipod, thus enabling its rapid disassembly and assembly without any tools.
Optional accessories are a para-case for transport and para-jump, serving also as a rest for firing, and a transport case.
The weapon is manufactured in two calibers: NATO 12.7x99 mm and the eastern caliber 12.7x107 mm.
Accuracy and efficiency of the FALCON Sniper Rifle particularly depends on the quality of the ammunition used.
