The Czech Ministry of Defence (MoD) has signed a contract worth CZK75 million (USD3 million) for Desert Tech Hard Target Interdiction (HTI) rifles for use by Czech special forces in international operations.

The contract includes the delivery of 30 sniper rifles, each with a set of conversion kits for .375 CT and .50 BMG cartridges (including barrel, bolt, and magazines), along with scopes, 120 replacement barrels (737 mm/29 inches long), 21,000 cartridges, and additional accessories such as bipods, mounts, and cases.

The HTI is a bullpup design, multi-calibre (convertible between .375 CT, .408 CT, .416 Barrett and .50 BMG), bolt-action sniper/anti-materiel rifle capable of engaging targets out to ranges of 2,200-2,750 m. It is equipped with a quick-change barrel that can be replaced in less than 60 seconds even in field conditions.

I would not worry about the calculated per unit cost too much. There may be other items off list that got included that still makes this a fair deal.

It wouldn't be the first contract I have seen that had unwritten and underlying assumptions, equalling the cash value of the deal.

On the other hand, precision rifle is a very expensive game. The Czecks may well have a fair deal...
