I have to wonder what kind of tragectory a 6.8 bullet will have when fired from a 5.56 case. Might be similar to .300 BLK, which isn't exactly flat shooting.

Interesting just the same...



JL visited Taipei Aerospace & Defense Technology Exhibition (TADTE) and spotted the new XT100 AR-15-style Assault Rifle chambered in 6.8mm SPC. The rifle has been developed by the Taiwanese Military Combined Logistics Command, Arsenal 205. It utilizes a short-stroke piston, has a 16" barrel and a forward quad rail. The 'XT' stands for Experimental Type.

Well, Taiwan isn't all that big so it only has to make it across the island, right?

I remember during one Asian Appreciation month Group 2 was celebrating, some (asian) members of the command brought food in for everyone. They brought in Philipino food, Thai, Chinese, and I believe some Korean. The CO asked one of the girls to describe what each one was and as she pointed out the Pad Thai, a caucasian female said, "I LOVE Taiwan!"

Just bustin' yer chops Tack!

Conflicting reports on if it is SPC or not.
Ahhhh, I really cant see Taiwan trying to design a whole new caliber when the 6.8SPC is already available and waiting for a home.

Too funny brother.

Taiwan is gonna need something if that doucher Obama decides to pull chocks and NOT help protect them from China.

I'll have to plead ignorance regarding that situation. As far as acting against China, I'd have to see that as a bit of an issue just because of the US debt to China (which BTW, I find completely embarrassing).

Thats a scarey thought. could the U.S.'s word/treaty be broken over money?
that just sounds wrong to me. but I'm a poor man I guess thats why I value my word so much. I might feel really different about my country if it doesn't keep it word...

The only ones who should have any confidence in Barry are self declared enemies.
