      Only appreciable advantage of the M16/M4, with all tradeoffs going either way being more or less negligible. It also wasn’t the greatest performer in terms of reliability, and while it did alright in testing it was not the best prototype/trials rifle the US tested.
      Basically no point in adopting it.

      In some timeline, the G36 was more fish-like.

      It's a G36E which wasn't bad
      The German's G36s are not as good because they cheaped out.

        the G36 is a gun that was made for commercial export
        its not a military gun, as much as it can work so
        if it had just more metal & polymers, it would be perfectly fine, yet they didn't do it correctly
        its no AR15 or AK74/47M, its just a disappointment, thats over taken by the HK416
        they literally could have just made their barrel bushing thicker, but they didn't, so frick them
        ever gun should have had a "LMG" barrel, thats the end of it

          its a "cheap gun" in comparision to what it delivers and absolutly mogs any other competition of its time.

          Two optics one for close range and one for medium long range shooting. They are pretty decent for their time but completly outdated for today.

          Is pretty reliable and shoots accurate enough for an standart infantry rifle even moreso in due to the scopes.

          The competition at the time delivering the same thing did not exist. Even today non EU Nations dont equip they forces with scopes in most cases at least not with that amount

            Ok so realistically…wtf is the actual difference between the G36 and the XM8?
            They both look and seem to function pretty damn similar to me. Why did HK even bother updating the design? US specific criteria I guess?

            • 3 weeks ago

              all deviations from the G36 were Army requests. they wanted it more rounded and they wanted the negative footprint attachment points. the Army also secured the rights to those attachment points (PCAP).

                PCAP was doomed from the start. In the era the XM8 might have seen adoption, the AWB ended in 2004 and there was a Cambrian explosion of pic and weaver based rail attachments. I can't seriously see PCAP surviving that market deluge. Almost nothing else did.

                i think it has something to do if you want to sell the guns to 3rd party nations. the US can interfere with it. fighter planes are a good example - no gripen to finland or norway, they got f-35 in the end. ITAR helped.
                that's also why the French have their own systems for just about everything military related (rafale, missiles, bombs...). they want to be indepenent and sell to whomever they want.

                addendum:
                sell the guns, planes or whatever. US has the final saying if you can export something with their parts and if they have a competing product, they can block your export or somehow extort you/ buyer (for spare parts for example)

        It was a couple of misfires, and field reports seem split. Everyone agrees that it's too heavy to carry in addition to an M4, but some found it viable as a primary weapon and others didn't.
