The NDR assault rifle was an entrant into the East German armed forces. It externally resembled the G3 but internally the Sturmgewehr 44. It was chambered in the 7.62x39mm round fed from 30 round magazines and gas operated using a tilting bolt. It was resistant to the likes of dirt but found too complicated when field stripping. The NDR was trialled against the Czechoslovak Vz58. The project was cancelled as the AK-47 was preferred
