A “Cyclone MSR” sniper rifle, manufactured by Steel Core Designs, was reportedly displayed as part of a BRIMOB demonstration at Atang Sendjaja Air Base in 2018. A rifle that appears very visually similar was photographed being inspected by members of BRIMOB in a photo shared on an official BRIMOB instagram account in May 2022.
