Kit Up! obtained a copyof the SOFIC brief on USASOC's plan for future weapons to 2017. In it, we noticed an interesting piece of the assault rifle plan that concurrently runs a caliber conversion kit for the Mk-17 along with continued fielding and sustainment of the SCAR heavy.
The slide also shows the Mk-16 going out of circulation and USASOC taking a look at the potential Big Army improved carbine.
There's also some stuff in there for you operators out there who hang a bunch of furniture on your AR. Take a look and let us know what you think.
