Looks like a funky OICW look alike thingymajig with a bullpup P90 look, but functional. Could that be from the US sponsorship?

I think the G36C or G36K will be the next M-16.

i reckon the next us rifle will be a bullpup type rifle. they offer so many benefits over normal (non bullpup) rifles. also i reckon that the us will design their own rifle or have a rifle designed specially for them.

Very nice weapon..looks like something out of Halo 2.Certainly seems to be a force towards shorter bullpup type rifles than the larger battle rifles seen over the years.

Very nice looking gun, looks really light too.

I thought that the Xm-8 is gonna replace the M4/M16?

It was suppose to but the whole program when to hell when US gun manufactures got upset and started to lobby their congressmen (XM-8 was produced by H&K and it was largely going to be manufactured in the US). Now there’s supposed to be this new competition with US manufactures offering up their products (all are essentially interim upgraded current weapons, none totally new and long-term replacements like the XM-8). BS if you ask me, the XM-8 was ready to go out of testing and into service and it was good rifle, now the whole program is in lingo and not going anywhere, so for the time being we’re still using the M-16.

OICW is completely moduler. you can take off the majorty of the body and it'll look like a stockless m16. on a side note this gun is also made by H&K

Its such a shame the way things go some times. I wonder how US marines feel about the proposed new weapons?

Modulated weapons just make so much sense. On an MP5 for example, if you want to have a tac-light fore-grip then you have to replace the whole grip whereas with rail-mounted guns like M4S-System or XM8 its soo simple.

I am a fan of the M4 range myself and Im not in the army so it wont really change my life that much but it would issue in a whole new range of weapon platforms instead of updating old designs.

The G11 & OICW are both great weapons but they are big rifles. The TAR really looks practical because of its size and customability.

But who knows, if WW3 starts tomorrow then maybe I will put more thought into which rifle I'd want.

are you sure?

The guy (bald headed dude) who hosts the show "Future Weapons" is an American and former Navy seal. And yes the weapon in question was made and is intended to be used by Israel, NOT the US.

BTW Jews who may have dual citizenship with Israel or who move to Israel later on in life can be from all over the world. Some are from the US, Russia, France and Germany for example. There is no set accent, some speak English really well others don’t.

It's mainly SF, but IDF is slowly spreading it to regular troops as M-16s wear out, but as they still have wast stock of M16s and M4s it will be a long time until it's the primary rifle (if ever) just a cost issue

What was the name of the first weapon reviewed?

The one that drops from a jet and then splits up? Can destroy 40 tanks at once?

I'd prefer to see an orchestrated effort between all the NATO countries on developing a new cartridge first. One in the 6.5-7mm range that would have effective terminal ballistics to at least 600 metres. Developing a rifle when a new standard hasn't yet been established is foolhardy. The 5.56/7.62 cartridges are dated and have their shortcomings (I'm a longtime 7.62 fan) and to continue to develop arms based on these calibers is a mistake.
