The Dual Automatic Rifle (FAD - Fusil Automático Doble) designed by Salomón Braga Lozo of SIMA (Navy Industrial Service) is a proposal centered around the cartridge NATO 5.56x45mm that offers less recoil, less weight and volume while at the same time giving precision, adequate range and ergonomy that is to be coupled with a grenade launcher (40mm) in a single package.The weapon design includes the advantages of the bullpup system, while trying to deal with the issues related to it. Designer and its creation:Proposed Final Arrangement:- "bullpup" configuration; being a compact weapon can be easily used by armor crews, as back-up weapon.- Cartridge case similar to that of M-16. 30 cartridges 5.56x45mm. (STANAG 4179) inclined to 12°.- Ejection Port to 45° allows the unobstructed ejection of cartridges.- Rate fo fire of 550 shots per minute with an effective range of 600 mts.- 40mm grenade launcher with pump-action reload mechanism.- Standar sight,manually regulated.- Rail Coupling Picatinny type for the instalation of Optical lens.- semi-automatic and automatic firing modes.- Use of lightweight materials will alow a further weight reduction from current 4.8kg to 3.6kg.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vQeMAP4sx0

The FAD assault rifle is a proposed service weapon for the Peruvian armed forces and its layout is supposed to be very ergonomic.The information below was posted by Fulcrum of Peru Defensa (www.perudefensa.com):
I don't THINK I'll ever have to face down routers in the streets.
I should hope not. Mobs of rogue woodworking tools would suck to repel.
I think it's a passing FAD.
MikePS Sorry. Had to.

I'm pretty sure I could build a significantly better assault rifle in my home workshop. Of course I plan to do just that (non NFA of course).
Make sure you post pics. Anything is better than that crappy FAD...thing.
I demand videos.
Will do. It's really just going to be an AK in 6.5 Grendel with a STANAG magwell, but I still say it will be significantly better that the above thing.
