The German Heckler & Koch G3 is a 7.62x51mm NATO calibered battle rifle that has a standard capacity of 20 rounds.  Its the former service rifle of the German army until Germany shifted to the G36, however, is still used by many other nations such as Greece. The G3 seems to be the second weapon choice of Triela.


The G3 was developed in the 1950s by German armament manufacturer Heckler & Koch GmbH (H&K) in collaboration with the Spanish state-owned design and development agency CETME. It was designed based off research by Mauser engineers towards the end of World War II. The rifle uses the roller-locked delay blowback system originally intended for the STG45 rifle that was to replace the STG44 rifle in the German military. The name "G3" stands for Gewehr 3 in which means Rifle 3 in German.
