Iconic G3A3 rifle to be replaced in Greek army
The G3A3 is the iconic weapon that has been linked to the Greek military for over 40 years and used by most Greek males during their army services.
The G3A3 (A4), a selective-fire automatic weapon is in the process of being phased out, as the Greek Ministry of Defence is considering upgrading to more modern weapons.
According to a report published in newspaper TA NEA, the replacement of the G3A3 will feature a collapsible stock, improved grip to provide better handling and a special barrel position for mounting and adjusting a red spot or lens.
According to a report by the Ministry of Defense, the goal is to upgrade this armament and replace the G3A3 with the newest modern weaponry within four years.
