The AUG is one of the first rifles to enter service designed on a bullpup principle; this makes it 25% shorter than other rifles with similar barrel lengths, without compromising ballistic performance. It comes factory-equipped with a low magnification optical sight/carrying handle. The AUG is generally regarded as a modern ergonomic design for a combat rifle.
