Overview[edit]

The SWP PS-1 was the third product of the Swazu s Wojnaskej Prjemojsyl (Union of the Military Industry) and was the first ever assault rifle of Waersian origin. The PS-1 is the standard assault rifle of the Waersian Armed Forces. Newer designs for the PS-1 are planned to be finished by 2019 to form a more modern rifle, although lack of funding could halt the process.
