The Alligator: All about the anti-materiel rifle in Ukrainian hands

The 25kg weapon is designed to eliminate vehicles, not people.

Ukrainian soldiers have been seen using the two-metre long Alligator anti-materiel rifle, so Forces News has taken a closer look at what it can do.

The weapon is designed to take out vehicles with a magazine of five, high-caliber rounds.

Experts say the 14.5mm cartridge used by the rifle makes well-known 50.cal rounds "look like pea-shooters".
