Gun Pundit has some good shots of the German Bundeswehr troops in Afghanistan sporting the G36 rifle.

Lots of photos here.

    G36 is a good rifle. Many people believe that the G36 short stroke gas piston is the best piston system on the market. G36 also has a magazine that is superior to high reliability STANAG mags. The only major complaint I heard about the G36 is that the handguards become too hot to grasp on rapid fire but I heard that HK solved this problem by designing a handguard with an aluminum heat shield.
