I'm glad you asked nephew. Pour us both a cough syrup and bourbon into the skulls of these fudds I use as drinking glasses and let's chat.

You see, what you have to take into account is how fucking much the British and the French hate each other. They constantly have to fuck with and one up each other.

France chose the FAMAS to throw on the ground when they surrender and of course the British had to choose the L85 to have in order for the regular line troops to despise and the SAS to feel smug while they used ARs like everyone else does.

You see, the British armed forces are actually about two squads of SAS guys that go oper8 and then a bunch of regular troops who mostly are extras for episodes of Dr who.

They use G36ks and MP7s for their armed cop units and Glock 17s as good handguns. So they know they have to kill their own people regularly. But if they had a good service rifle they would then have to do well military wise. That's too much pressure.

Who needs military-industrial complex when you can have a police-industrial complex?

Added bonuses are the free prison labor, and no pesky international conventions to follow.

Uncle, I'm scared. I think I may need conversion therapy, I completely forgot that I've always had a admiration for the appearence of the Famas F1, perhaps I have Metal Gear Solid and Counterstrike 1.6 to blame.

Metal gear solid is actually a testimony of how fucking metal it's possible to be if you love oper8ing and bandanas.

A long time ago, that game helped popularize a gun called the HK MK23. Which led to the USP which is, as we know, fucking amazing.

I want a FAMAS too. And I legit actually want a tavor. I'm too broke though and keep buying handguns.
