SA80 in Bolivia

    German newspaper published this photo of a Bolivian special forces solider carrying a SA80 rifle. Bolivia is only one of two users of SA80 outside of Britain, the other being Jamaica.

    The solider in the above photo looks a lot less frightening than the now-disbanded Bolivian police unit Unidad Táctica de Resolución de Crisis (UTARC) who also used the SA80.
