Heckler & Koch Delivers New Assault Rifle to the Bundeswehr

The Bundeswehr and the German Bundestag have once again expressed their confidence in the Oberndorf-based small arms specialist Heckler & Koch: in future, the soldiers of the German armed forces will be equipped with the modern HK416 A8 assault rifle.

With the approval of the Defense and Budget Committee, the first samples of the HK416 A8 can be handed over to the German Armed Forces for integrated verification. The HK416 A8 is the official successor to the G36 from Heckler & Koch, which has been in use in the Bundeswehr since 1996.

Heckler & Koch is very pleased about the important task of being able to continue to provide our servicewomen and men with a first-class and reliably field-tested product.
