I think I've said this before, but we are living through a real-life T2K scenario. I foresee the "bump in the road" to be about 2025-2030. If we make it through then, we have a bright future as a species. If we don't, well, we won't be the first species to go extinct; we'll just take the ecosystem with us. The ecosystem will regenerate and continue, and possibly generate a new intelligent species.

It's impractical, unfortunately, to advance the timeline this far.

mpipes, you've inspired me to create my own narrative timeline of weapons adoptions for Germany and the UK for the v1.0 timeline.

Apparently, during the 1950s and '60s, the Germans acquired a DMR version of the FN FAL known as the FN FAL G1 Sniper. Not many were produced, but it would be an interesting find. It's got wooden furniture and a telescopic sight.

Interesting. It doesn't look like any went into service, though. The blurb I read on the FN FAL G1 Sniper suggested that a few did.

It would make an interesting retro build in Real Life, and In Game.

First of all, the L1A1 aka SLR should always be referred to as "THAT Rifle" (ask any Old & Bold Squaddie).......

Mpipes can you PM me, I have been dying to do a build of THAT Rifle.
