Designed to perform in the world’s toughest environments, the F90MBR delivers accuracy, reliability and adaptability when you need them most.
Backed by over 100 years' experience in manufacturing weapons for Australian soldiers from WW1 to the battlefields of today, the F90MBR (Modular Bullpup Rifle) is the new generation of superior assault rifle for integrated forces. The F90MBR builds on the battle proven F90 platform, delivering the flexibility and interoperability needed by the modern war fighter. Its bullpup design for longer barrel length and optimum muzzle velocity provides superior stopping power in a compact, lightweight package.
The F90MBR is one of the lightest assault rifles on the market at 3.25 kg, and is fitted with ambidextrous controls to enable fast reaction times and rapid target engagement - a clear advantage in close quarters combat.
NATO standard rails and magazine ensure compatibility and interoperability with existing weapon fleets and allied forces.
Available in three interchangeable barrel lengths: 508 mm (20in), 407 mm (16in) and 360 mm (14in), the F90MBR delivers the flexibility required on operations to support the needs of the modern, integrated soldier. The F90MBR can be packaged with rifle accessory and ancillary equipment in an integrated, mission configurable Grab Case. This means the F90MBR is able to provide an operator with a modular and tailorable small arms solution for any tactical scenario. Each rifle can be seamlessly fitted with the 40mm grenade launcher and grenade launcher sight by the soldier in seconds - a potentially critical and decisive capability on operations.
