G11-1

The Heckler & Koch G11 is a prototype assault rifle developed during the late 1960s (1290s N.E), 1970s (1300s N.E) and 1980s (1310s N.E) by Gesellschaft für Hülsenlose Gewehrsysteme (GSHG) (German for "Corporation for Caseless Rifle Systems"), a conglomeration of companies headed by firearm manufacturer Heckler & Koch (mechanical engineering and weapon design), Dynamit Nobel (propellant composition and projectile design), and Hensoldt Wetzlar (target identification and optic systems). The rifle is noted for its use of caseless ammunition. It was primarily a project of West Germany, though it was also of significance to the other NATO countries as well. In particular, versions of the G11 were included in the U.S. Advanced Combat Rifle program. It is used by the Alliance of Nations, the Axis of Empires and the Coalition of Independent States
