I think I'd like the M16A2 or the M4

Since it was a decidedly POS, you may be able to get free left overs.
Pardon my ignorance...but what is POS.
I know OICW was scrapped...the post was a joke.

"A definition of Assault Rifle is easily seen in the German Language."

And that Sturmgewehr term was originally invented by Hitler himself.


I personally prefer Rynnäkkökivääri RK95.

And few words about terminology:
Rynnäkkö = Assault/Sturm
Kivääri = Rifle/Gewehr
RK = Stg

Right. POS is Piece of Sh1t. I think too much sometimes.

That OCIWS looked too friggin' bit and cumbersome anyways.

That's why I like the FN SCAR the proposed SF weapon. Unlike the Xm-8 which is able to be modified from carbine to DMR and LMG, the SCAR is able to be modified to different calibers like the 5.56, 7.62 x 51, and 7.62 x 39. I think it is a very good idea.

The Scar does sound interesting....

I like the XM8 a lot too....

But all in all, give me a good old M16A3. Once again, depends on the mission....

If I was in Afghanistan or Iraq, I would much rather have a M14 or FN FAL.

What is wise about using rounds you cannot easily acquire when supply runs low or that leaves an unmistakable calling card? Just because it looks good on paper, and fairs pretty well in testing, does not mean it is practical, logical or safe in reality.
You have a point there, my friend.


And what exactly is the SCAR, I can't find jack about it.
