The VB Berapi LP06 is the first assault rifle designed and manufactured by Malaysia, and is not related to any previously licensed assault rifles made by VB Berapi. The LP06 is a bullpup assault rifle. It is chambered in the 5.56x45mm NATO round and is fed from a 30 round magazine. Hisham Abd Majid, the director of Vita Berapi in 2006, said[citation needed] that the rifle is designed by Viktor Prykhodko (Russian: Виктор Приходько), a Russian residing in Malaysia.
