More than likely. The SA80 isn’t all bad though, it is far more accurate and has longer range than a C8.Just on the topic of this makeover. Are C8s being rolled out to all Cdo units now?
I recall reading that C8s handle frangible rounds better. Apparently for ship operations the use of 5.56 frangible is to minimise the ricochet risk. Apparently the SA80 family doesn't like frangible rounds.
But the C8 has some awesome pros though. Being a lot lighter, less complex and ambidextrous.
