New Army Rifle

According to this Army Times article, the competition for a replacement weapon system is now open. No news on others weapons being put forward for the contest but I reckon that Heckler and Koch has the competition all but sown up with the XM8. It'll be interesting to see what else is put up against it.

And the bad news is that the Army is going to (predictably) stick with the 5.56mm round.
