[Heavyarms] Anti-Material Rifle
These large bore weapons are designed to destroy light armor, the large caliber rounds it fires can go through multiple opponents in a single shot.
An anti-materiel rifle (AM) is a rifle that is designed for use against military equipment (materiel) rather than against other combatants (“anti-personnel”). The offensive use of anti-materiel rifles or Special Application Sniper Rifles (SASR) is termed Hard Target Interdiction (HTI) by the United States military.1 Anti-materiel rifles are similar in form and appearance to modern sniper rifles and can often serve in that role, though they are usually chambered for cartridges more powerful than are normally required for neutralizing a human and can operate at a greater range. In general, anti-materiel rifles are chambered for 12.7×99mm NATO (.50 BMG), 12.7×108mm Russian, 14.5×114mm Russian, and 20mm cartridges. The large cartridges are required to be able to fire projectiles containing usable payloads such as explosives, armor-piercing cores, incendiaries, or combinations of these, as found in the Raufoss Mk 211 projectile.
