Pff, they should use the Swedish MKS.
I mean its the ugliest, most uncomfortable rifle ever designed, but its 5.56mm so what more could you want?
The stock looks a bit weird but other than that the FN SCAR looks rather simple, i like it.
The L85 is one of the ugliest rifles out there, G36 and famas too .
I think BIS could have used M4's for the soldiers and HK416's for SF but i dont mind the SCAR.
Maybe the thread should be renamed to this.
I'd much rather they set it in Afghanistan/Pakistan or some other real location instead of changing the name, and the weapons I think detract from the realism somewhat. They're small details, but they kind of annoy me.
Hopefully ACE will remedy this
I'm really, really bloody glad that I finally get to see something else than M16/M4 rifles on Blufor troops.
Thank you, Bohemia.
And I don't mind if it's not 'realistic'. All these rifles exist, so it's perfectly fine to use them in a videogame. Especially in an alternate reality.
You've answered your own question there But seriously - as has already been mentioned (I hope), the Mk. 16 was deemed too cost ineffective and insufficiently advantageous over existing equipment to be worth spending lots of money on. That money has been partly diverted to buying Mk. 17s of various flavours that do offer something quite different (the flexibility of the SCAR with a larger round). Infact this is a hot topic at the moment.

Linebackers are in the game.
I haven't played the game enough to have played with them yet. That's awesome
