« The Mk16 is a light-caliber version of the modular rifle made for the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM). This weapon still uses the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge, but it is designed to operate better in the harsher conditions and can be fitted with numerous accessories: EGLM grenade launcher, silencers or wide selection of weapon sights.

The Mk17 is a heavy version of the modular rifle made for the US SOCOM. The weapon is chambered for more powerful 7.62x51 mm NATO cartridge, but maintains the advantages and modularity of its lighter version.

Trivia Edit

  • Both variants of FN Herstal's "SCAR" assault rifle were officially adopted for use (albeit in limited numbers) by U.S. special operations forces in the real-world.
    • However, while the Mk17 is used by the U.S. Army Rangers and other units in real-life, both the Mk17 and Mk16 are shown to have completely replaced the M16A4/M4A1 families of weapons weapons in-use throughout the U.S. military for the Armaverse.
    • This is completely unauthentic to real-life, as neither the Mk16 or the Mk17 were considered for adoption by any conventional branch of the U.S. military.
  • Aside from the XM8 (and the MX in ArmA 3), the SCAR family is one of the few rifle platforms in ArmA 2 that has the largest variety of accessory and attachment options to choose from.
