Domestic industry meets Ukrainian demand for sniper and anti-armour rifles.

The Ukrainian military is bringing into service two types of indigenously manufactured 14.5mm anti-materiel rifle amid reports of heightened tensions in the disputed Donbass region.

Kharkiv-based Snipex is providing its Alligator and T-Rex rifles, although no information is available on whether deliveries have been made or are planned in the near term.
