    How does it compare with the tavor? How about having this also in our list for F-INSAS, or maybe HK416?

    No thefirearms blog is a very serious one, i must admit i'm bit dubious too, but anw it is fun to look at it anw no?

    Tbh i do not see real interest as you need a laser pointer man to target...So he could do the shot.

    The one we usually use in my unit aside of FAMAS (rarely, mostly for instruction), G36, HK 417, M4 (just in order to keep them out of rust), and some more exoctic (only to talk about assault rifles). Excellent, relaible, precise and sturdy weapon . i sware you you can kill 500m, using a vertical 3 bullets shot) But new generation rifles will be more modular. And due to the very high quality of components, it is deadly expensive. Norway had some of the first versions and werent so satisfied. Modifications were included and globally french SF are quite happy with it, also tuning it with non HK sound reducers and other MCGyvered stuff. The good point is that it seems to accept thos modifications, despite shouting from HK France (/rofl). I have never shot new heavier 5.56 bullets with it so i cnat comment.

    I have a few questions, please take a look :

    1. Very first question - is this going to be deployed for the whole army?
    2. Is this going to be a standerd issue to all personnels?
    3. If it is a standard issue for all personnels then would that imply for the weapons as well? (Keep in mind the requirements for each regiment/unit. Requirements of our Parachute regiment differs than requirements of Gorkhas).

    Please correct/pardon me if I have asked something non relevent.

    1) Yes, it will be deployed for a whole army.
    2) yes, this will be a standard issue.
    3) No, the weapon requirements for all forces are different depending upon their operations
    hence, customized weapon systems will be issued.
