I meant that it is similar to SiG recent range of assault rifle products, with a different back receiver than AR-15 and with the possibility of mounting a folding stock

Okay, you've got me very confused.  Your responses seem completely unrelated to your original comment.

You:  "SiG's carbine entry looks like a short barrel marksman rifle more than an assault rifle."

Me:   "To me, it looks pretty much like a beefier version of the improved M4 carbine used by SOCOM."

You:  "Look at the back of the receiver"

Me:   "I don't see anything unique about the back of the receiver, and the whole rifle still looks to me like a M4 URGI on steroids."

You:  "As any other recent SiG design, the back of the receiver protudes far from the grip."

Me:   "How does the shape of the back of the receiver make it look like a DMR?"

You are right. I didn't develop it enough. Sorry, Stan, I mixed the two issues.

Anyways, how SiG carbine is supposed to tame .270 WSL-like recoil?

With a suppressor and in-line stock?

haha yes. With that. The operator will be able to do rapid fire... if dispersion cone is not important :)

It isn't.  Riflemen are supposed to take steroids and lift weights so they get big and strong enough to handle the .270 WSL-like recoil.   ;^)

I don't get why they even pretend that they are offering a proposal for IW

But, it appears to have a vertical "feed tower" in order for it to be inserted into a mag well on the LMG. If that's the case, I suspect the ammo boxes are going to be unnecessary bulky in pouches, due to the need to accommodate the ~2" vertical feed tower. Similar to the problem with storing AR compatible drum mags.

Perhaps the black T bar thing is a detachable part of the gun, but the belt boxes themselves attach to it in some way that is not apparent?
