I admit, I am a big fan of photos like this - Maschinengewehr MG4 with night-capable optics on top just to make matters even greater.

Here's the presentation from the German Army (machine translated):

Firepower for the infantry
The MG4 is a light machine gun. The fully automatic weapon fires in short and long bursts and can attack targets at a distance of up to 600 meters.
The weapon can be used by right- and left-handed shooters and has an integrated bipod. The MG4 machine gun is a one-man weapon capable of night combat, which can be used to attack individual and group targets. It is used as an integrated weapon in the Puma infantry fighting vehicle.

The Heckler & Koch MG4 is a belt-fed 5.56 mm machine gun, designed and produced by Heckler & Koch. Below is the MG4 with a more limited optic.
