The VB Berapi LP06 is the first Malaysian manufactured assault rifle. The Berapi LP06 does not relate to any previously made assault rifles.
The rifle was designed by Vyktar Prykhodeka, a Russian that currently resides in Malaysia. The rifle was showcased at some sort of exhibition in 2006, where it was mocked for its poor and unergonomic design. The rifle was supposed to enter production by the end of 2009, but failed to do so due to a variety of unspecified problems.
