The MG36 is the Light Machine Gun variant of the H&K G36 Assault Rifle. It is fitted with a 100 round Beta C-Mag magazine and a heavy barrel, and fires the standard 5.56mm NATO cartridge like the other variants of the G36 family. A very small batch were made for testing with the Bundeswehr. However, tests concluded that it offered no advantage over a G36 modified for a similar role. Thus, it was rejected, with only about 300 ever produced. The MG36 is used by the Alliance of Nations and the Coalition of Independent States
