Default Re: Famas to be replaced on French army by 2017

It had to happen someday, the national industry lost savoir-faire in firearms since some time already.
I kinda hoped for FN SCAR option instead but HK416 will do the deal, and it kinda makes sense since HK417 were already chosen some years ago to fill the missing DMR position.

Many thanks to everyone involved in the making of the best videogaming experience ever !

Look at how amazing this thing is.



It doesn't even need rails. I mean why would it? It's a G3, it's perfect just the way it is.
It'd be even more amazing if it were tad lighter and field maintenance was easier (taking it apart and cleaning)

Default france replacing famas with HK416F completely

mildly old info.

reasons:
French steel-cased 5.56 had compatability problems with NATO brass-cased ones.
French domestic famas factory closed, last famas batch was in 2002.



H&K strikes again

FAMAS will remain in use until complete replacement of 416F can occur, then FAMAS will be passed down to LE, NG and reserves etc
