The PDShP (Georgian: პდშპ) is a series of anti-materiel rifles developed by the Georgian military research unit STC DELTA and produced by Tbilisi Aircraft Manufacturing. The weapons are based on a bullpup design and there are different versions. Development of the current series was completed in 2013.
History[edit | edit source]
The development of the rifles was complete in late 2012 to early 2013 but the weapons were not revealed earlier than May 2014.
Variants[edit | edit source]
Currently there are three or four variants available. They are all bullpup configured. The more recent 12.7×108mm version is recoil-operated with a 6 round box magazine feed and has an effective range of 1800–2000 meters. Its development was completed in 2013.
Almost simultaneously a shorter and more compact bolt action rifle was designed. It fires the more powerful 14.5×114mm rounds yet its effective range is limited to 1100–1200 meters.
