High Precision Systems, OJSC scientific and production association will present the ADS naval commando rifle at the IDEX-2015 Defense Industry Exhibition, in Abu Dhabi.
Due to its unique performance characteristics, the ADS is the first rifle in the world capable of equally effective use in water and on land.
High Precision Systems, OJSC has produced the first unique amphibious ADS (specialized dual-environment rifle) for marine commandos. The international premiere of the ADS will take place at the IDEX-2015 Defense Industry Exhibition, which will be held from February 22-26, 2015 in the UAE capital of Abu Dhabi, said the company's press service.
As representatives at High Precision Systems have announced, the purpose of the ADS rifle was to replace the current APS (underwater specialized rifle) as the combat weapon for the special units of the Russian Navy.
On land, the rifle shoots 5.45x39mm caliber ammunition and VOG-25 and VOG-25P ammunition from its under-barrel grenade launcher. Underwater fire was made possible by cartridges designed specifically for the ADS.
