AuSteyr EF88 "on test":

Australian Defence Forces of # 1 Royal Australian Regiment based in Townsville  (part of the 3rd Brigade) in Northern Australia are reported to be testing the new version of the Steyr AUG known as the AuSteyr EF88.


AuSteyr EF88 - Interesting Camouflage Pattern eh.

- Even more interesting to me is the double optical sighting system mounted on top

 - I recall that our NZDF were complaining that their old current model AUGs were limited for usable range by the 1:1 optical sights as issued.

This week-end, New Zealand is remembering the tragic sacrifice made by our armed forces in the attack to take Chunuk Bair on the Gallipoli Peninsula during the World War 1 'Dardenelles'  Campaign'.
