The SSG 69 (Scharfschützengewehr 69 = Sniper Rifle 69) is a bolt-action sniper rifle produced by Steyr Mannlicher and serves as the standard sniper rifle for the Austrian Army.
Adopted in 1969 (hence the designation), it was ahead of its time with the use of synthetics and cold hammer-forged barrels for accuracy. SSG-69 is the Austrian Army's standard issue sniper rifle. The SSG-69 is also used by several police agencies. The SSG is extremely accurate and several international competitions have been won using an SSG-69 with accuracy being sub .5 MOA.
In Project Reality, the SSG 69 is referred to as the SSGP1, and is in use by the Middle Eastern Coalition and Argentinian armies.
- Used by MEC and Argentinian Forces
- Includes a Telescoptic scope
- The SSGP1 was originally a placeholder for the Argentinian Sniper kit until the developers realised that the rifle was actually used by Argentinen snipers during the Falklands War.
