The Gepárd anti-material rifles are a family of Hungarian weapons designed to destroy unarmoured and lightly armoured targets. These long range, large calibre rifles have high accuracy as well as high muzzle velocity. The Gepárds originate from World War I German 13mm anti-tank rifles created to damage the primitive armoured vehicles developed by the British.
