Did you know that the new action anime The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat is so detailed that it features a real-life sniper model? The primary weapon that the protagonist is using in the anime is based on the CheyTac M200 sniper, according to the director, Masafumi Tamura. Tamura shared this bit of information during the Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2021 in August.
The CheyTac M200 is a bolt-action sniper rifle categorized as an anti-materiel rifle (AMR). For additional information, an anti-materiel rifle (AMR) attacks military equipment rather than people (“anti-personnel”). British SAS and Polish GROM are some of the elite army units that commonly use the CheyTac M200.
