The VHS-2's adjustable stock just goes from long to longer. Even when full collapsed, the LOP is longer than a fixed stock M16's

[QUOTE=Riller;52992611]How does it compare to other bullpups, though? Just as bad?[/QUOTE] I don't have the time to resize pictures and place them side by side for now, but I know that the M16A2 has a 13.5 in LOP while the AUG has ~15 in and the original Tavor has ~16 in. The VHS-2 probably is between 16-19 in depending on how the stock is adjusted.

It's my favourite gun also and I'm very upset I cant safely import one to Ireland.

I like how the VHS is basically just a famas with a longer LOP. I understand that there isn't a whole lot of choice in bullpup design configuration but goddamn it's like HSP went we need a new rifle and the engineers immediately went Ok do you mean new or "new?"

I didn't know they made that optic standalone. This opens a whole world of opportunities for weird frankenguns, unseen since Pimp My Gun 2.0 came out!
hensoldt makes everything standalone as long as you pay.

The mix of nazi style look with scifi works so well
The rifleman will always remain the coolest of them all imo [t]https://orig00.deviantart.net/184d/f/2015/160/e/1/killzone_2_helghast_rifleman_trooper_by_luxox18-d8wpljm.jpg[/t] the trench coat is pretty cliché but it looks sexy anyway
And the propaganda speeches are awesome to listen to.

[img]https://i.imgur.com/vexMpFZ.gif[/img] Personally nothing beats the Kerberos Panzer cops from Jin-Roh. They look terrifying, but aren't actually pure evil (Definitely no saints though). The movie is about one of these cops that couldn't bring himself to shoot a female terrorist. Here's a short video (This all happens in the first part of the movie, no real spoilers): [video=youtube;lP-StOMLJfI]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lP-StOMLJfI[/video] The movie feels very much like Ghost in the Shell, so if you liked that, be sure to watch Jin-Roh.

And of course it matches a real caliber :v:

I think this looks pretty neat. [t]https://wiki.teamfortress.com/w/images/9/94/RED_Dragon's_Fury.png?t=20171021011925[/t] edit: picture's from the tf2 wiki It's a new pyro weapon from the big tf2 update, a flame launcher.
I've always liked TF2s weapon design, nonsensical as it can be sometimes.
