LMT brought the new M.A.R.S. (Modular Assault Rifle System) Light carbine and the LMT M203 Grenade launcher (with dummy rounds, of course) to Industry Day at the range. This rifle has several improvements over the standard AR15, and, as recently reported by our own Nathaniel F. in this article, the M.A.R.S. was recently adopted by the New Zealand Defense Force.
Jane’s reports that the New Zealand Defence Forces (NZDF) will spend NZD59 million (USD40 million) on 8,800 new MARS-L rifles, support, training, and accessories.
