The AUG (German:Armee-Universal-Gewehr), also known as the StG.77, is a bullpup assault rifle manufactured by Steyr Mannlicher that chambers the 5.56x45mm NATO round. The AUG features a progressive trigger that allows it to fire in semi-automatic and fully-automatic by the pressure exerted on the trigger. The AUG in this case, therefore lacks the conventional fire selector seen on other firearms. The AUG also features an integrated 1.5x magnification scope known as the Swarovski Scope, which is detachable in later variants.
There are variants of the AUG that appear in the Rainbow Six universe. These variants are the AUG A2 and AUG A3.
- The AUG A2 variant is similar to the original AUG but carries the ability to remove the telescopic scope attached to the top, to be replaced with a top rail.
- The AUG A3 variant is similar to the AUG A2 but features an external bolt release and a top rail attached automatically.
