The SSW was procured as an Urgent Operational Requirement (UOR) for operations in Afghanistan and is an adapted version of the L29A1 Sharpshooter rifle.

It has been improved from the standard L129A1 with the addition of the L17A2 Schmidt & Bender 3-12 x 50 Sniper Scope and Surefire Suppressor. This capability enhancement greatly improves the snipers pair’s ability to locate, identify and neutralise targets with a high degree of accuracy.
