Just saw this, It looks like the Australians are working on their own 6.8 NGSW type cartridge and gun, also something about moving away from "traditional brass", I don't know exactly what means, maybe a TV style case?

Anyone else wondering just how they expect to put a top-mounted drum magazine on a bullpup?  hushed

I'm just going to assume the author meant bottom-mounted, It seems like an error to me

I really don't want to be the poor guy that will have to use a bullpup rifle with such a long LoP.

Are they planning to enlist only guys taller than 180 cm?

The LoP is adjustable, by the look of things. The pistol grip is on an accessory rail.

I missed that, good catch, I wonder how that would actually function in the real version though

Either the linkage is adjustable or it’s electric, though both raise further questions.

In either case, it would need to be a very neat system that can stand the pistol grip being removed but not be susceptible to other things being placed on the rail. Locking out the trigger with a downgrip or causing it to fire by turning the flashlight on would be embarrassing.

I know that magazine writers can make some pretty dumb mistakes, but it's difficult to imagine one mistaking top for bottom...
