I would disagree........

Most death in war are pure cause of "Stupidity". As in you won't get killed unless you do something stupid.

What's more important than the new rifle and the LMG is the new type of ammo. Turkey will copy this rifle in 10 years @merzifonlu remember this.

The new type of ammo is almost tailor-made for Turkey's needs too

The Optics, the suppressor, the whole package is just very nice.
It would be very easy to convert the MPT-76 into a form capable of handling this ammo (6.8 mm). Because the infrastructure of the MPT-76 is very suitable for this. However, I think we will have problems with the under-license production of that ammo. The USA wants to sell itself directly, if it sells it too.

I think we can go to development on 7.62x51 NATO ammunition instead. The shell of the ammunition becomes polymer. (There are companies that develop this technology.) The dynamics of the bullet and the chemistry of the gunpowder are also improved. An ammunition that is almost as stable and long-range as those used by snipers results. And light too.

Semi-steel case allowing pressures of 80.000 Psi would mean that the MPT action has to be strengthened. And it's not just the ammo, the rifle, the optics, the suppressor. The whole package is sweet.

and now EVERY SOLDİER is going to carry a suppressor, every rifle comes with the suppressor. It's a beautiful system. I'm telling you, we'll try to copy this and we'll call it national rifle 68 or something

I hope the autists who said "AR10 is good enough no need to invent something new" get to see this.
