Germs cant catch a break - New assault rifle absolute trash

>Total corruption leads to HK winning the German assault rifle tender
>Accuracy is abysmal with MEN 556 ammunition, HK asks to use ultra high end commercial precision rounds for testing instead.
>Excessively corrupt German bureaucracy agrees, precision tests are conducted with RWS premium .223 rounds (1,99 € per round)
>HK416 goes from 4 - 5 MOA rifle to standard 3 MOA rifle, still not passes repeatability and accuracy under sustained fire tests
>Viseblock used is apparently not good enough, because it allows for some movement (almost like a human)
>New vise block is used, clamps the rifle down in one position with a maximum shift of 0,003 cm (beyond human capability)
>Finally, firing cycles degrade accuracy to fast, subsequently HK is allowed to lower the firing cycles to reach specified goals
>All competitors were denied these opportunities. Hence Steyr et al dropped out. Haenel, surpassing HK in testing, was taken down by lawsuits (3 holes in a buffer tube are apparently an idea you can patent, despite being around on the US commercial market for over a decade.

What now, HK sisters? Nice door kicker rifles to unload at 7 yards. If you want to hit shit out to 300 m, nothing beats eugene stoners design from the 50s.

            Do you think small arms do most of the killing in war? Do you think 5.56 is effective beyond 500 yards? Do you think the media cries about shit that doesn't matter in the real world?

            This is a non-issue being blown out of proportion by the same people that complain about fully-semi-automatics.

        Nobody claims the tavor is a long range precision rifle, I'm aware it'll be fine out to 300-500 yards, but every time it's discussed here all the ARfanboys talk shit about the 3moa capability. It's a 16 inch barrel rifle in a mk18 size package, what's the problem? It's a weapon for close quarters type combat. And apparently an HK416 is less accurate, which is astounding because that's an expensive ass rifle

          If it can’t reach out to extended range, the extra barrel length is meaningless so you may as well go with the lighter weapon that’ll still get the job done at the range you need it to.
          Plus accuracy is always good. You aren’t just getting extended range, but you get the ability to make more difficult shots.
          It turns out that people don’t want to get shot so they take cover, which might leave just a little bit of their body exposed. Is your 5 MOA H/k/ope or Gayvor going to make that hit?

        Accuracy of modern small arms, other than if it's absolutely atrocious like Luty level, doesnt matter as much as you seem to think.
        As long as it holds zero decently a 1 or 2 MOA difference won't be a strategic hurdle to plan around. As cool as guns are they really don't matter all that much in the bigger picture of a huge war.
        Watch 10 minutes of footage from any significant recent war and tell me how much the rifles being 1 inch more accurate at 100 yards would have affected the outcome of the engagement

      >pistons are not needed
      germany gets a proper winter often enough that you want pistons just to be sure
      for anyone who doesn't live in a winter wonderland piston systems are significantly more reliable in freezing conditions than DI
      not immune, but more resistant
      if you can get a piston gun to run in a realistic (not le youtuber dump water into gun) firearm freezing scenario, it will run reliably
      a significant part of this is the increased recoil
      the most common freezing scenario is condensation freezing (might be a more correct english term for this, idk esl lole)
      piston recoil "shatters" the condensation layer and other icing formations throughout the entire gun more effectively; of course this is at the cost of having piston level recoil which is awful and abrupt compared to the buttery smoothness of DI

      also the KSK is using the 416A7 meanwhile the german army as a whole is looking at the HK433 which is a unfricked ACR but since the ACR is absolute shit i suppose it won't be hard for the germans to make it better

          Yeah no, this is a bullshit lawsuit. It's pretty much throwing shit at a wall and seeing what sticks. There are laws regulating government purchases, making it so you have to run a freely accessible tender to make sure no one's just directly giving contracts to their buddies (this is a good thing) but there are exemptions for strategic purchases like defense contracts (this is also a good thing). Finland took advantage of this and HK is seething impotently.

      What's their problem, and why do they even care? Both Sweden and Finland have strong domestic arms industries and neither of them have a foreign rifle (unmodified) as their standard service rifle, there was no way HK would ever win a contract there even if they had a competition.

      Can the Finns just not tell the germoids to frick off??? It's their national service weapon acquisition, not the germoid one. Do matters of national defence not trump some moronic seething business????????????

      Why the frick is H&K like this? It's not even a one time thing. They sued Mexico almost 20 years ago for their FX05 and lost and are still fricking pulling this moronic shit.

        Autism. Germans tend to be unreasonably proud of anything designed and/or made in Germany regardless of how it stacks up in the real world; most of the time when something fails they'll approach it with the default attitude of "what did you subhumans do to our flawless machine", when someone buys something that works just as well at a fraction of the price they scoff at the ignorance on display and when someone improves a product of theirs they're generally pretty butthurt about it.

          lmao I work in the automotive industry and that's spot on at least for some other brands. I do know that Porsche is a lot better than other German brands. BMW has been getting better too as of late, precisely because they too worked with Toyota on modern QC practices. Currently the Mercedes/Audi cultists are seething because Genesis was rated higher than Mercedes Benz or Audi in reliability and build quality so their first response is that the Koreans must have bribed someone. My favorite is when they will try to argue that having a major system on your call fail at 30,000 miles (entire cooling system, ECU, turbos, fuel delivery system etc ) is completely normal and you should just pay to fix it as it's "maintenance" yet will admonish Japanese brands for literally going 150,000 miles with no faults as junk.

      You can look up literally any remotely effective weapons system that has been donated to Ukraine and you'll find at least one Ukrainian calling it a magnificent masterpiece, the greatest weapon known to man. They'll flatter you and suck your wiener until you're so proud of your mid tier rifle or artillery piece that you send more just to get some more compliments. Any halfway decent weapon shipped is better than getting nothing.

    Hard to believe. I watched two H&K 762 videos this week where two different rifles were under 1.2moa with a slew of ammos and under .8moa with certain ammo. Thought that quality would transfer over to their HK416 line up.

      The HK417 was developed as a precision marksman rifle. The HK416 was your common assault rifle afterthought.

      HK417 wasn't an accurate rifle either. When it came to Germany selecting their DMR rifle they used the civilian MR762 as the base for the G27/G27K because the existing HK417s in production had poor accuracy as it was designed more as a battle rifle.

    Alright, I read the full article.

    Unsurprisingly, it's based on an article in Bild, a tabloid known for being low in journalistic quality and high in sensationalism and OP is straight up ignoring parts of it.

    What OP fails to mention is the reply by the ministry of defense, who called the Bild article grossly oversimplified and misrepresenting the facts. They say the rifle, using the new, currently in introduction by the Bundeswehr 5.56 ammo, fulfills all accuracy requirements. But that there were several tests with precision ammo, a different vise block to hold the rifle, better scopes and longer pauses between bursts than in the regular tests to basically have a control group of tests with as little influence of outside factors on the rifle's precision to compare the regular tests against.

    Now, of course it's possible that this is a lie and that they just want to avoid a new scandal so shortly after the G36 debacle, but again: Bild is trash tier. They are caught making shit up or twisting the facts all the time.

As a result, I would like to save us some work today and over the weekend and make it clear that the new rifle will not fail in terms of precision. The requirements for the manufacturer to meet the specifications have not been lowered. Overall, there were also individual assessments that the troops could be at risk.

      But perhaps I should turn to the facts: As we have already informed you, we have opted for a successor system to the G36 from the manufacturer Heckler & Koch, the so-called G95. This is now undergoing troop testing, a so-called integrated verification process. This means that the rifle has to prove once again under troop conditions that it meets the requirements after successfully passing the selection tests. Of course, this also happens with the ammunition available in the troops. Precisely defined tests are carried out there.

To rule out the possibility that it was not the weapon that was measured in this test, but perhaps other factors as well, precision ammunition was used in accordance with the agreement with the manufacturer. This is also stated in the contract. This contract provided for these changes. It has also been communicated to Parliament. This is the standard procedure for eliminating measurement errors. This is referred to in the reports by the weapons experts of the Federal Audit Office, who claim that the manufacturer was accommodated. This is not the case.

      Just have your service rifle contract with a Saudi owned 12 man company that outsources every single step from design to service. What could go wrong.

    >Viseblock used is apparently not good enough, because it allows for some movement (almost like a human)
    They're testing the rifle, not the human.
    When such a dogshit reasoning is presented I'm actually more inclined to believe the opposite of what I'm being told.

    HK416 has such a soulless look. Dunno why everything needs to copy the AR15. We could have HK do something cool instead.

    Are you frickers really dumb enough to believe what the German press says about guns? Look at all of the contracts the HK416 has won over the years but suddenly they are shit in the hands of Germans?

    How the literal frick did they manage to get an HK 416 to group so poorly. I've seen slapdash poverty ponies do better than that with shit ass bulk ammo.

    Ah, the new Cat@Net shill thread is live.
    Here's the ministry of defense's rebuttal: https://soldat-und-technik.de/2024/01/bewaffnung/36668/info-bmvg-zur-kritik-am-sturmgewehr-g95/

    >There were indeed deviations in the tests. To rule out the possibility that it was not the weapon that was measured in this test, but perhaps other factors as well, precision ammunition was used in accordance with the agreement with the manufacturer. This is also stated in the contract. This contract provided for these changes. It has also been communicated to Parliament. This is the standard procedure for eliminating measurement errors. This is referred to in the reports by the weapons experts of the Federal Audit Office, who claim that the manufacturer was accommodated. This is not the case. This modified test procedure only excludes the possibility of actually measuring the weapon and not the ammunition.
    >With the newly introduced standard ammunition, the weapon fulfills all requirements. We are currently introducing new standard ammunition because we are also required by the EU to use new chemicals that are more environmentally friendly. We have done that. This ammunition is currently being introduced. It is of course state of the art in terms of production processes and precision. With this new standard ammunition, which has been in use for some time now, the weapon meets all requirements and standards in the best possible way. There has been no lowering of standards.

    When I saw the title I figured it was just fake news because I can’t imagine Germany of all places failing at engineering a gun to such a degree. Maybe my idea of Germans being high-IQ autists is wrong, but if it’s not then there’s no way they’d make anything except an excellent rifle.
