    How about a proposal to replace a fifty year old assault rifle. As our enemies are quite aware of the weaknesses of the M4.

      I’ll think about it, though I didn’t really research assault rifles. Something like FAMAS or VHS might be a good idea, though. That being said, expected usage is a problem – requirements for urban/jungle combat are very different from that in open terrain, though even in open terrain an effective range above 500 meters is not required.

      EDIT: Problem with incapacitation can be solved with hollow rounds, but that might cause problems with penetrating body armor.
