Luxembourg equips its military forces (939 active personnel) with HK 416 A7 as new standard rifle, replacing Steyr AUG. Total volume ca 10 million Euros, also includes undisclosed number of HK 417 and HK269 40 mm under-mounted grenade launchers.
I for one think this is fucking sexy.
Bullpup fags lose again
Soldiers lose again. Going straight from a perfectly balanced 20" gun to a front-heavy 14.5" or 16" that takes its magazine in a completely different location is gonna suck for Luxembourg's handful of riflemen.
Considering the body armor boogeyman was enough to make the US adopt a 14 pound monstrosity of a new rifle system you'd think people would avoid short barrels.
Infantry small arms are basically all interchangeable for the past 50 years. It literally doesn't matter.
>It literally doesn't matter.
Yeah, so they might as well update to the current version of the AUG and not have to retrain all five of their guys on a completely different gun
Delicious delicious shitpupper cope. Face it, your meme raifus are on their way out and there's not a single thing you can do or say to change it.
Really? And here I thought screeching autistically on basket weaving forums would influence the decisions of militaries oceans away
Acceptance is good, you'll get over it in time, shitpupper.
Irrelevant country anyway. DI won the pisston wars.
>DI won the pisston wars
I'm not the one posting soijack. Look in the mirror m8
>939 active personnel
Get the fuck out? I know they're small but that's not enough fucking crowd control.
Bro there population is only 640000
Please dont tell me a country in the middle of continental yurop, surrounded by Alpine mountains and woodlands has adopted a FDE/coyote/babypoop tan rifle.
Not that they will EVER use them, but still, bleh.
First thing I thought. It's worse than black in urban environments. Should have used olive green. Maybe they are and the article is just using a stock photo.
Here it is with the AUG.
Why do they all look like Elder Scrolls generated characters. Or from early 2000's 'realistic' thumbnails for some soldiers in a game or some shit.
Not entirely sure what this has to do with his post.
See this shit has soul. Now imagine them with fucking olive middle east gay paint and non-styer.
Why didn't they replace with Lithgow styer the fucking bruces are using?
everyone in Europe is going 416
>Why didn't they replace with Lithgow styer the fucking bruces are using?
Because shitpups are dying, thank God.
Kek allmost 2% of their military in person. Probably 15% of their men under arms
>Surrounded by Alpine mountains
The fuck anon?
He was probably thinking of Liechtenstein
>adopted a FDE/coyote/babypoop tan rifle
Yet to be confirmed. OP is the G95K used by German SF, based off the A7 variant. They're offered in a few colors, though, so we don't know what they went with until we have photos from Luxembourg.
Tell that to the Finns and their new sako rifle
>surrounded by Alpine mountains and woodlands
tan rifles are still gay
for such a small force you might as well get something really nice. funny to see haenel there too, surprised they are still around.
what does a country hope to accomplish with less than 1000 personnel? you'd be better off just not having a military
HKbros CANNOT stop winning
>pic related list expanded once more
lmao, 90% of those groups are just wannabes that bought whatever American SOF use
Why Luxembourg steal Finland M05 camo pattern?
i hate the ar15 so much bros
God I wish we would adopt the HK417 as the rumours were saying.
The ones who actually do the fighting already did.
H&K keeps winning
PrepHole keeps crying
>the year is 2033
>Europe is consumed by war (again)
>nobody can tell friend from foe because everyone is wearing Multicam and carrying an HK416
Not to shit up a non-Ukraine thread with Ukraine shit but that's kind of exactly what's happening in Ukraine and why everyone has brightly colored tape all over their shit.
Pure sex. Just because I hate myself, how much would a civilian version of this cost?
like a couple grand for the base MR223, a few more thousand for a gray market 416 parts kit, a few hundo to have it assembled and tanodized, a grand or so for the EOTech and magnifier, and then you'd have to source an M320 somehow to stand in for the even more unobtainable HK269. So an utterly insane amount of money for an AR, but not as expensive as many transferable MG or high-end NV binos.
