The SS2 (short for Indonesian: Senapan Serbu 2, "Assault Rifle 2") is an updated version of the Pindad SS1 created by PT Pindad. It had been seen during the ASEAN Army Rifles contest by foreign media in 2006[1] aside from exposure by local Indonesian media.

Service UseEdit

Aside from its use by various Indonesian security forces after the Indonesian Army placed an order of 15,000 SS2s to replace their stock of SS1s back in 2005[2][3], Bangladesh has expressed some interests in acquiring the SS2 after a delegation had visited the PT Pindad office and its facilities in Indonesia.[4]
