— In-game description


The G8A1 is a light machine gun featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It is available for use by GSG 9 Recruits, the GSG 9 Operator IQ and the APCA Operator Amaru.[1]

OverviewEdit

The G8A1 is the Bundeswehr and Bundespolizei designation of the HK11, a 7.62mm magazine-fed general purpose machine gun from Germany. The HK11 is a variant of the HK21 machine gun, and replaces the belt feed of the HK21 with a magazine feed, similar to the G3 from which both were derived from.

The G8A1 has a fast firing rate and utilises a 50-round drum magazine, allowing it to reload faster than those that use belt-feed systems. Combined with its fast firing rate of 850, this allows the G8A1 to shine with the assault rifles, to an extent, whilst giving much greater firepower.

TriviaEdit

  • The G8A1 is modeled with the X Products X-91 50-round drum magazine.
  • When compared to the V308, the use of significantly smaller drum magazines would suggest the G8A1 is being used in a 5.56 NATO magazine-fed configuration, a possibility since the HK21's design allows for modular caliber conversions.
