The F88 Austeyr Assault Rifle is licensed copy of the Austrian Steyr AUG A1 rifle and has gone through a number of modifications. It is a 'bullpup' style rifle with the magazine and breech behind the trigger assembly, and has a combined carry handle and sight. The furniture is made from a composite carbon fibre material. The translucent magazine allows for visual verification of the remaining rounds. Selective fire capability is controlled by trigger pressure. It is the current Australian Service weapon and is still manufactured at Lithgow now owned bt Thales Australia, although it has been developed into a much more high tech weapon than when production began in 1988. Muzzle velocity: 970 m/s.
