      Its a swedish variant called Kulsprutegevär m/21, the removable pistolgrip as well as that its 6,5x55 mm calibre is the biggest differences. There also where a belt fed version with quick changing barrel.

        Your are right. What was the designation of the 5.56-version of the G3..?

                  • Obviously, disease has caused more fatalities than all the weaponry in the world in all the wars that have been fought. Catapults in the days of siege warfare projected bodies of persons who had died of various diseases into fortresses. The British gave blankets that had been use for smallpox sufferers to Indians. Now in the news is that the Mayan Civilization was so weakened by disease that they could easily be overcome by a handful of Spaniards and their allies.

                    Certainly the United States and other countries more recently have spent billions of dollars stockpiling biological weapons. Research in known diseases, as well as diseases that have been "created" continues.

                    If a single greatest cause of human death over recorded history needs to be singled out than malaria would be my choice. The toll in human death contiinues. Consider this:

                    The influenza pandemic of 1918-1919 killed more people than the Great War, known today as World War I (WWI), at somewhere between 20 and 40 million people. It has been cited as the most devastating epidemic in recorded world history. More people died of influenza in a single year than in four-years of the Black Death Bubonic Plague from 1347 to 1351. Known as "Spanish Flu" or "La Grippe" the influenza of 1918-1919 was a global disaster.

                    An estimated 675,000 Americans died of influenza during the pandemic, ten times as many as in the world war. Of the U.S. soldiers who died in Europe, half of them fell to the influenza virus and not to the enemy (Deseret News). An estimated 43,000 servicemen mobilized for WWI died of influenza (Crosby). 1918 would go down as unforgettable year of suffering and death and yet of peace. As noted in the Journal of the American Medical Association final edition of 1918:


                    The 1918 has gone: a year momentous as the termination of the most cruel war in the annals of the human race; a year which marked, the end at least for a time, of man's destruction of man; unfortunately a year in which developed a most fatal infectious disease causing the death of hundreds of thousands of human beings. Medical science for four and one-half years devoted itself to putting men on the firing line and keeping them there. Now it must turn with its whole might to combating the greatest enemy of all--infectious disease," (12/28/1918).
                    Nothing except a battle lost can be half as melancholy as a battle won.
                    Duke of Wellington

                          • Oddly enough it resembles the paintball launcher RPG that is being marketed to the army nowadays.

                            Otherwise I'd say it's some form of subcal trainer.

                            Correction: Going by your Nationality, I'd rather say it is the Saab laser trainer. I noticed the laser transmitter in the head.
                            Welcome to the adult world. Kinda sucks when you have to be the responsible ones and take all the pot shots from the chagrined lefties and mongoloid celebrities, who don't know their collective posteriors from sound economic policy. - 98ZJUSMC

                              SAAB has recently gone on a shooping spree and basically bought everything defence related over here.

                              • I worked with both the PGS and TWGS versions for the Abrams and Bradley. Awesome equipment, with tons and tons of capabilities. IMHO Saab makes the best force on force training systems on the market.
