Apparently the South Korean Special Forces are using the FN SCAR-L. A reader from South East Asia sent us photos of the Republic of Korea Army’s 707th Special Mission Battalion armed with SCAR-L rifles. Akaitama wrote …

These are the photo of South Korea Special Force, the 707th Special Mission Battalion or the “White Tiger”, armed with FN SCAR-Ls. The FN SCAR-Ls appear to be CQC version and have lasers and Trijicon scopes. The muzzle devices seem to be of the “SCAR 16” version (Made in Belgium), not the “SCAR Mk.16” version (Made in USA).

Here are two more photos of the White Tiger’s with their SCARs…

    Obviously the SCAR is a terrible gun since the Greatest Military Evar doesn’t want them!

    South Korea is in the Far East (China, Taiwan, Japan), not Southeast Asia (which would include Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore)

      Most likely a Southeast Asian reader submitting a Far East Asia picture. Note that the submitter’s name is “Akaitama”, which is Japanese for “red egg”. So my guess would be an enthusiast.

        O shet, didn’t read that one through carefully (or was that edited? not sure @_@)

          Don’t think it was edited, at least when I first read it anyway. But had you not mentioned it I probably wouldn’t have thought to infer in such detail 🙂

    Agreed, at that angle, he can’t put the stock into his shoulder very well, thus having the arm sticking out provides more surface area for the stock to purchase onto.
