Steyr AUG is a family of firearms, first introduced in 1977 by the Austrian company Steyr Mannlicher. It is often used to refer to a specific version, especially the initial version which was 5.56 mm NATO bullpup assault rifle, with a distinctive green frame and integrated scope. It has since spawned a variety of related weapons including a submachine gun, a designated marksman rifle, and light machine guns. It has been adopted by a number of armed forces and organizations and is the standard service rifle of Austria, Australia, New Zealand, Luxembourg, Ireland, and at one time Malaysia. The Malaysian Armed Forces replaced the Steyr Aug with the M4 Carbine in 2006.
AUG stands for Armee Universal Gewehr, meaning "Universal Army Rifle". The AUG has made numerous appearances in films, television shows, comics and computer and video games such as Counter-Strike.
