Alphabet Soup- Special Operations serving

The FN-SCAR. It’s a pretty cool looking rifle. It’s got a pretty cool name with its distinct look. Where did it get its name from?

In June of 2003 the US Government was looking for a new combat rifle. Responding to concerns from special operators in combat regarding the reliability, accuracy, safety and ergonomics of the current platform, the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane, began an investigation of potential improvements.

The rifle was approved for use and implemented in 2009. The specific application of the new rifle was for the special operators of the special forces. The name SCAR stands for (S)pecial Operations Forces (C)ombat (A)ssault (R)ifle.
