Introduced in 2018 and manufactured by US-based Scrutch Industries, the SCARAB is a more compact, flat-top carbine variant of the SCAR assault rifle. Utilizing advanced rifle cartridges that are smaller than the previous 5.56mm rounds, the SCARAB offers increased ammunition storage per-magazine with zero impact on combat effectiveness. The SCARAB differs from the SCAR in its shorter barrel, which optimizes the weapon for close-quarter combat, and a higher cyclic rate of 900 rounds per minute compared to 700 on the SCAR.
Part of the Superior Combat Assault Rifle weapon family comprising the SCARAB, the larger SCAR assault rifle, and the SCARE sniper variant, the weapon is mainly used by US Special Forces. Recently, the SCARAB has also seen extensive deployment in the police and private sector. It is a valuable alternative to submachine guns, offering a compact design without sacrificing fire-power.
The weapon can mount a variety of attachments including a silencer, under barrel shotgun, and combat scopes, making it excel at closequarter combat while offering the versatility to adapt to new combat situations on the fly.
