The GM-6 Lynx An Awesome 50 Caliber Bullpup Weapon
Just incase some of you aren’t familiar as to what a ‘Bullpup’ is, let me fill you in. The primary benefit of a bullpup weapon is that the weapon’s overall length can be significantly decreased without reducing the barrel length. This allows a bullpup weapon to be more easily maneuvered and concealed than a conventional weapon with a similar barrel length, especially in tight spaces.
The GM-6 Lynx 50 CAL is one of the most interesting Bullpup .50 BMG rifles that I have ever seen. Ultimately like many firearms the GM-6 Lynx is a tool to fit a specific job, and it performs well at that job.

Its task is to destroy the enemies key pinpoint targets, armored rifle troops in vehicles, light shelters and buildings, radio- electronic construction, missile launchers up to 2000+ meters distance and hovering helicopters within a 600-800 meters shooting range. It generates significantly (5-8 times) greater muzzle energy than the conventional small arms.
