Long Range Rifle (LRR) is a British designation for a AWSM (Arctic Warfare Super Magnum) sniper rifle. It is highly prized as a dedicated long range sniper rifle that combines the easy handling with the great power and range.
ArmA 2 Edit
The LRR was introduced in the ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead expansion, "British Armed Forces", as the one of the two marksman rifles, and as a general purpose sniper rifle for the British forces. Its closest counterpart in-game is the US M24 rifle. Both have similar power, magazine capacity, and roles.
It is a very accurate and powerful rifle; its .338 Lapua Magnum makes it one of the most powerful infantry based weapons in the game, after the heavy sniper rifles. Its scope has two zoom settings, making the weapon ideal for marksmen and sniper roles alike. The main drawback of the weapon is its five round magazine capacity, which is low compared to the 20 round 7.62 magazines of the, albeit less powerful, DMR, M110 and SCAR-H and 10 for SVD Dragunov, making it somewhat inferior as designated marksman rifle. Also, unlike the four rifles described, there is currently no variant with night-fighting optics installed.
The AS50 heavy sniper rifle, included in the expansion, is a cousin to the LRR.
