Though with the way things are going in Germany at the moment, this might ultimately end up in the Army Projects section!
After almost six decades with Heckler & Koch, the German Bundeswehr appears to have selected a new supplier for its assault rifle. As things stand today, it seems that Germany's next service rifle will be the C.G. Haenel MK556.
Following yesterday's surprising announcement that the C.G. Haenel MK556 had won the German Army tender to replace the Heckler & Koch G36, the news has now been officially announced.
Heckler & Koch released a statement earlier today addressing the Bundeswehr's selection of the C.G. Haenel MK556 over HK's HK416 and new HK433 rifles.
