The Steyr AUG Para is a 9mm Submachine gun conversion of the AUG rifle. The weapon is intended primarily for Law Enforcement and special operations usage, offering a compact and relatively accurate weapon compared to other 9mm SMGs. Most of the AUG's basic components are retained in the conversion, with a short 9mm barrel, unlocked bolt, and magazine adapter components being installed on the base rifle. The A3 9mm XS variant is an updated version of the Para based on the AUG A3 platform.
