Bundeswehr replaces G36 with HK417

Some German soldiers will be carrying different weapons within a year as the Defence Ministry scrambles to replace standard rifle which loses accuracy under hot temperatures.

Yeah, so I do think I am out of line in saying that the Germans are not exactly a nation of riflemen, so to speak. I fired the G36 for the German shooting badge a few times and found it to be pretty intuative. The integrated Hensdolt/Zeiss dot sight was pretty decent and the ergonomics were sound. Not sure when the Bundeswehr would need to make 300+ meter shots in the Congo, but whatever.
