Weapon Background[edit]

During a collaboration between the US Army Delta Force R&D department with the German fire arm company H&K, an European distant relative of the AR-15 platform of assault rifles was born. The new carbine project was originally named HK M4, later on changed to HK416 after law suit filed by Colt Defense regarding trademark infringement.

Primarily chambered with the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge, HK416 is a short-stroke gas piston operated, rotating bolt, selective fire carbine. Feeding on standard issue NATO STANAG magazines HK416 is able achieve a rate of fire of 700-900 rounds per minute, default iron sight provides an effective firing range of 300 metres.

416 features Picatinny rail placements all over the gun, top of the receiver, top/side/bottom of the barrel forearm. Compatible with and able to attach all forms of combat accessories of NATO member states, the rail forearm does not come in contact with the barrel, the barrel is "free-floating" in effort to improve accuracy. Bottom rails can mount accessories such as a fore-grip or a 40mm grenade launcher (usually the AG36/M320 style), while the side rails for tactical lights/laser and/or other combat accessories. The weapon also features a folding front Iron sight paired with a rear sight similar to that of a G3, the operator can make use of it should they not wish to mount optics.

The HK416 may be visually similar to that of a AR-15 rifle, it features several technology innovations of H&K, their HK50, XM8 and L85A2 projects has provided valuable experience in the development of HK416. Different from the other AR-15 derivatives with the direct impingement mechanism, HK416 uses the proprietary short-stroke piston mechanism developed by H&K, which was derived from G36. Other minor features includes newly designed adjustable telescopic butt stock and pistol grip to improve user comfort.

Military/policing units all over the world are adapting the HK416 (Variants or derivatives) into their arsenal due to it's undeniable reliability, performance and modularity. Starting with the Norwegian army (HK416N), United States special operation groups such as Delta Force and DEVGRU SEALs has also followed the foot step and replaced their M4A1 out of service with the HK416, French army is also planning on gradually replacing their FAMAS F1 with the HK416F.[1] For various reasons, HK416 (likely due to the tremendous cost of replacing a service rifle) had yet to replace G36/HK50 as the main service rifle of Bundeswehr, however Bundeswehr had purchased an amount of HK416A5 rifles and given the designation G38 for them[2], likely for the use of their elite units.

Design

Artist NIXOO commented on the design of HK416 on the Official Girls' Frontline Art Book[3]:

HK416 is an improved model of AR developed by Heckler & Koch for the US military market, she is somewhat related to the members of AR team. (HK416是hk公司针对美军市场的改良型AR,和AR小队有一定的渊源,)

I incorporated various design from UmiNeko's AR team characters and added various features of Germany.(所以设计的时候在整体风格上参考了海猫的AR小队设计,并且添加了很多德国元素,)

Such as the German special forces KSK's beret and beret badge, 'Kommando Spezialkräfte' being written on her chest, the hair pin design came from the German Iron Cross, while the high collar design came from Bundeswehr's combat uniform.(比如特种部队KSK的贝雷帽和帽徽,胸前写着Kommando Spezialkraefte[sic],KSK名称的英文[sic]拼写,发卡也是由铁十字变形而来。衣领的样式则来自德国国防军作战服特色的高龄。)

By the way, the teardrop on her face symbolizes vengeance~(顺便一提:脸上眼泪团代表复仇~)

A5 variant of HK416 is currently in service with the German special forces KSK, which is likely the reason NIXOO incorporated designs from the said military unit. The 'blood tear' tattoo under HK416's left eye is likely based on the HK's defeated in a lawsuit against Colt about the copyright infringement of the name of "HK M4".
