Will France & Germany (& UK?) Adopt a Unified Weapon? H&K Poised with HK416 to do so.

Could Heckler and Koch secure contracts with three of the important nations in Western Europe?
It doesn’t seem that unlikely!

I don't see any reason for those three countries to give any substantial weight to the consideration that they would all use the exact same rifle.
Proliferation of HK416/417 in the GAF is increasing (actual designations are G27 for HK417 and G38 for HK416), the Dutch use them in many areas, the French actually made an official move for their entire forces. So thats actually not so far off, actually most SOF already use them in aforementioned countries.
