Overview

The HK G3 is a well-rounded, commonly used German battle rifle. Matching the range and outclassing the damage of the standard G.I. M16, the disadvantages of the G3 Battle Rifle is a lower rate of fire, higher weight and considerable recoil. However, the reduced jam chance and reload time makes it an excellent weapon for squad marksmen or long-range squads such as the LRRP.

Real Life

Though nearly impossible to tell, the G3 battle rifle can be traced back to the final years of World War II wherein it was influenced by the MG 42 and StG 45(M) of Nazi Germany. Though extremely rare, the G3 and HK33 battle rifles found their way into the hands of Navy SEAL teams during the Vietnam War and were praised for their reliability on-par with the Vietnamese AK-47s.
