New National Rifle program was announced by the Hellenic Ministry of National Defence

The Greek Minister of National Defence Nikos Panagiotopoulos has made it clear that the national rifle program has not stopped but is in full swing.

In particular, Nikos Panagiotopoulos answered a question from the MP, Giorgos Tsipras, regarding the future of the headquarters of Greek Defence Systems ( ΕΑΣ ) and their reputation for sale that “not only is there no question of selling the Greek Defence Systems, but on the contrary, there is a plan to develop and upgrade them” through the national rifle program.

The Greek Ministry of Defense added that the national rifle will be made in cooperation with a foreign company without specifically stating which country we are talking about but stressed that this cooperation will boost Greek Defence Systems.

The national rifle program has a two-year implementation horizon, the minister said and informed that at this stage cogeneration companies are being evaluated by the Greek General Staff, with the aim of moving forward as quickly as possible to replace the G3 rifle of the Greek army.
