Description: The Heckler & Koch (HK) G36 is a gas-operated 5.56x45mm assault riffle was designed in the 1990s as the replacement for the German Army's aging G3 7.62mm assault riffle. This riffle can be fed alternatively by a 30-round detachable box magazine or a 100-round C-mag drum magazine all of them using 5.56mm NATO-standard ammunition. Originally designated as the HK50, it was declared operational within the German Armed Forces in 1995 under the G36 designation. It can engage targets at distances of up to 800 meters using optical sights with 1.5x to 3x zoom. A 40mm grenade launcher known as the AG36 can be attached to the riffle. Despite it can attain rates of fires of 750 rounds per minute the G36 is unable to sustain high rates of fire due to overheating issues that decrease its precision beyond 100 meters making impossible to engage targets beyond 300 meters. The overheating issue was realized during the military operations by NATO ISAF in Afghanistan. The G36 assault riffle has been a big success in the export market becoming a very popular gun in Western countries and its allies operated by military, special operations and police forces. Spain adopted the G36 as its primary riffle in 1999 and Saudi Arabia in 2008.

The G36V, formerly known as the G36E, is the export version proposed by HK. The MG36 was a machine gun version equipped with a heavier barrel. The G36K is a carbine version. The G36KV, formerly G36KE, is the export version of the G36K. The G36C subcarbine is a compact version intended for special operations or commando forces and is equipped with a shorter barrel than the G36K carbine. The G36A2 is an upgraded version used by the German Army featuring a Zeiss reflex red dot sight and the G36C stock for ease of handling.
