New Sniper Systems in Chile

We are pleased to announce that our customer base has grown yet again within the international special operations community. The Chilean Army BOE, or Special Operations Brigade, has recently taken delivery of their new MARS-H weapon systems. With a primary focus on sniper roles, the MARS-H will be of great value to the teams in country due to its modularity and ability to be configured in mission specific kits.

This marks this first contract in Chile and it just the beginning of a great relationship with the Chilean Army and larger operations in the South American region overall. Special thanks to our in country agent Magnatrade Tech for coordination and facilitation of the contract. Gratitude is also due to German Bovet(Bovet Elite Trace), training coordinator attached to the Chilean Army tender, for providing in country services.
