The new assault rifle is scheduled to become the new standard issued rifle design to meet NATO standards. The WAC-47 is a step forward by the Ukrainian Defense Industry to meet Euro-Atlantic structures. Development of the WAC-47 platform is a joint effort between Ukroboronrpom and California based Aeroscraft.
The new WAC-47 supports a number of calibers: 5.45×39, 7.62×39 and 5.56×45 NATO, as well as the 458 SOCOM and 6.8 SPC II. Ukroboronrpom has produced and deliver a small quantity of the WAC-47 in 7.62×39 for testing by the Ukrainian military, law enforcement and other agencies.
