SA80 unupgradable: Buy Israeli?

If the SA80's upgrade had been a failure and had still been unable to bring it up to an acceptable usable weapon, what would the MOD have done, faced with an immediate need for 100,000 workable assault rifles: break in to the TAVR's reserve SLR stock? Or be compelled to purchase, now matter how politically incorrect and to the howls of the Arab world & Anglo-Pakistani community, the best value for money reliable bullpup at that time: the Israeli Tavor?! The Buckingham Palce Trooping of the Colours with the Busbies slung with an Israeli gun: either the End of the World or The Second Coming?!

You spastic
 
To have purchased the FAMAS from the French would have been even more politically unacceptable than buying from the Israelis, so apart from the Steyr and the FN2000, what other bullpup was available for immediate purchase in 2004?

If the SA80A2 had also turned out a failure, would the MOD have considered a conventional assault rifle? If so, what would have been the likely winner?

It's nothing to be ashamed of: there have been only two 100% British designed guns in the last 120+ years: the Sten Gun and the SA80.

And whilst both worked, they both had a reputation for borderline marginality.

Well, those two and the finest battle rifle in the world covering a period from when Victoria was on the throne to middle of World War 2...

You really are the quintessential fucktard aren't you?. Can you at least make the effort to ask just 1 semi sensible question preferably without surrounding it with some inane dribble that would make Richard card (AKA Danny D) cringe. Failing that just **** off and die you dull ****.

Arse out of talking you are

Or am I badly mistaken in thinking Exocet / Milan / Jaguar** / puma / gazelle were French


** Ok that was a joint effort , oh hang on it appears we may have developed kit with the frogs.

I edit my post to add you are also a thick **** polluting this site with some of the worst bellendery since Joe 118 Overdosed on Vim and winegums
