Trivia Edit

  • The SPAR-16 is based on the real-world "HK416" assault rifle designed by Heckler & Koch GmbH of Germany (more specifically it is based on the A5 variant).
    • On the other hand, the underbarrel grenade launcher on the grenadier variant is based on the real-world "GLM" add-on module (which is also designed by Heckler & Koch).
  • The SPAR-16S is currently the only weapon in ArmA 3 that feeds from a Beta-C drum magazine. In previous titles, only the MG36 and XM8 Automatic Rifle from ArmA 2 could utilise the same Beta-C drums.
