The SOCOM SCAR program is cancelled

    Christian Lowe, the managing editor of, has published a blog post categorically stating that he has it on record that the SCAR Mk-16 has been cancelled

    And the meme that that Mk-16 wasn’t “cancelled” and that only hyperbolic “reportage” “interpreted” the fact that the command had decided to stop buying the Mk-16 and have all those in the field returned as a “cancellation” is borderline delusional. Give me a break. It’s CANCELLED! Live with it!

    UPDATE: I removed the photo from the article. The photo was of a SCAR Mk-17 (SCAR-H) which has not been canceled. My apologies.
