    Looks to be a FAMAS.
    “All the world will be your enemy, Prince of a Thousand enemies. And when they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you; digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.”
    Richard Adams, Watership Down

    FAMAS -

    French SOF use both the HK416 and HK417
    SCAR Light and Heavy are under evaluation - French want to replace the FAMAS
    FAMAS Gen 2 (or Felin) is compatible with NATO SS109 or F5 ammunitions (7″ Beretta barrel) (See Pic Below from Soldier Systems)

    What a F'd up article that was. The Fckn guy is fighting terrorists on the front lines and they give him flack for a Fckn bandana? I don't care if he was wearing a lady gaga costume the dude is taking the fight to the bad guys and deserves respect for it. Instead a **** storm decends upon him for wearing a bandana. What the F kind of lefty liberal douchery is this? I hope his identity wasn't revealed I would hate to see him get administrative punishment for such meaningless gesture. But yes that looks like a FAMAS as stated above.

    FAMAS for sure.. I didn't know they were supposed to be making a fashion statement. This is a prime moment when the OFFICIAL sitting next to the offended OFFICIAL, slaps the stupid out of the offended OFFICIAL.

    Of course they do. If they didn't, who would they get to surrender to the Germans?
