Do You Know What A Cuban Mambi Is?



The Mambi is a gas operated semiautomatic anti-material rifle, or AMR, chambered in the Russian 14.5 x 114 mm round. Its principal application is against thin-skinned vehicles, boats, etc. However, it has also been used as an anti-helicopter shoulder fired weapon. The action and magazine are behind the trigger group qualifying it as a bull pup design. The Mambi AMR is only manufactured in Cuba, and it is still in existence today.
