NARP (New Assault Rifle Platform) is a unique and modern platform, with ergonomics close to AR platforms but embodying battle proven action designed by Beretta, which pushes the boundaries of products performance. Thanks to its reduced weight of 3.3 kg (including empty magazine) and a total length under 90 cm, NARP fits any operator offering fully ambidextrous controls, a set of telescopic, foldable, and collapsible stocks, and proprietary grips and buttstocks enabling efficient handling and quick and convenient transitions under all circumstances.
Modularity and versatility make NARP a weapon that can adapt to any scenario, including the most challenging environments: chassis made of cutting-edge materials ensure its excellent performance even in very cold or very hot temperatures and in muddy and dusty scenarios. Through complete control, NARP offers pinpoint accuracy at any distance, ensuring the certainty of hitting the target and completing the mission successfully.
Presented at DSEI in three variants in 5.56 NATO caliber, NARP will be the first step of a completely new portfolio of battle weapons, this including a new assault rifle fitted with a muzzle flash reducer system and an improved thermal signature reduction. Integrated with the new Beretta-made B-Silent sound suppressor, produced using additive manufacturing technology, the new rifle dramatically reduces soldiers’ signature, thus increasing their survivability on the battlefield, masking soldiers from detection from sight and hearing.
“With the NARP program, we invested energy and resources in the development of a new assault rifle platform that would enhance soldier capabilities, as required by international protocols and meet their needs for reliability, accuracy, and modularity. Project’s tagline ‘Everlasting Legacy, unmatched performance’ perfectly describes concepts and effort behind this product. This is another example of how we are committed to investing in the most advanced equipment to back our troops on the battlefield.”
