    Nope.

    There is a new Sniper Rifle Scheduled for Next Year. A new DARPA-funded electro-optical system which can calculate the ballistics and signal where to aim and ensuring a perfect shot, no matter the weather conditions.

    It will measure atmospheric conditions, account for the weapon’s maximum effective range and include GPS coordinates. It’s also supposed to communicate with the rifle scope, informing the gun itself of the aim point offset and expected crosswind.

    USA !

    As for now, the corps already field the M110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System. The rifle allows shooters to rapidly engage targets out to 800 meters with match-grade 7.62mm ammunition, especially in scenarios requiring multiple follow-up shots.

    7.62 sniper rifle? Don't we have plenty of those ?
    I thought it fired something bigger like the Lapua Magnum or the .50 BMG

    But that is aiming sight.. NOT the rifle.
    it is designed to be standard on the piccany rails or something.
    In theory..it could bolt onto any rifle caliber.

    The PSR 90 is a semi automatic sniper rifle which would inherently be less accurate while giving other advantages. The Bora 12 on the other hand is a bolt action rifle which has other strong points when compared to a semi automatic rifle. Both will be used.

    The barrel seems pretty small for a sniper rifle.

    But what the heck!
