Role in Ghost Recon Edit

Real-world overview Edit
The PSG1 was designed and developed by German firearms manufacturer Heckler & Koch by the mid-1980's. Designed to be the ultimate police and counter-terror marksman rifle, the PSG1 ( PrazisionsSchutzenGewehr 1, or "high-precision marksman's rifle" in English) has been adopted by various special police forces across Europe and the US, such as SWAT and the German SEK (Spezialeinsatzkommandos). While the GSG (Germany's elite counter-terror force) participated in testing the PSG1, it was deemed too heavy for military use. However H&K then produced a lighter derivative of the PSG-1, the MSG-90, for military use.
