The CAR (Caseless Ammunition Rifle) was a caseless assault rifle made in 1990. The designer, Rik van Bruaene, took inspiration from the Heckler & Koch G11 and sought to solve issues that he saw as inherent in the design of the G11. The CAR was built around the same principles but reduced the amount of moving parts within the gun by implementing an integrated rotating breech within the solid frame. This way, the CAR had less mass moving rearward per shot and less energy was dissipated for follow-up shots. The CAR had a very high-capacity 120-round magazine, an optical scope, and an integral bipod. Two companion weapons were also developed; the CAR-2 assault carbine, and the CASMG submachine gun.
