    Only SFs have the M4 and Tavor in service.

    + the point about uniforms is correct, this is very unproffesional and when you think about it a serious security risk.

    No definitive idea frankly...but if it isn't for additional ammo, it has to be a gas mask/respirator or maybe even a pouch for NVG.

    Interesting that the AAR/MCIWS and the new Cornershot (shown here with Browning HP) have the same pistol grip.

    Also, the handguard/forward grip on the cornershot looks like it was developed for the MSMC/JVPC (thought it's NOT the same one). I'm not gonna hate on it as long as it works but...this cornershot looks shoddy at best.

    There is NO WAY that cornershot is the production variant, look at how crude it is; it couldn't possibly withstand the kind of user trails it would have to be subjected to. It's a technology demonstrator, a much more refined version will have to follow before it is considered for operational service.


    For reference, the orginal CornerShot:

    Maybe it's the image but the MCIWS looks quite horrible in this image.
