Because you don't need a foxhole to protect you from the blastwave of incoming nukes.
>>
>>25338132
Foxholes work kinda nicely against bullets and shrapnel too you know.

Or if you meant that the nuke makes the foxhole irrelevant, far form it. There's a small bit of "fucked no matter what" near ground zero, surrounded by a huge area where it's really great to have protection against the heat flash, blast wave throwing you around, and assorted debris being blown a round by the blast wave. Even the simple "duck and cover" will greatly reduce the risk of injury and death in that region.

When you think about it, the basic idea behind all of that is pretty much exactly what we have now.

goes out of frame at this point but it looks like the barrel extends automatically when you pull the magazine down.

Damn, a bullpup that's heavier? That's disappointing, I don't even know the weight of a FAMAS.

They're still being used in the UK. Mostly as phone masts, but they'll be standing for the next thousand years so why not?

This is one near my house.

Not by a lot, but still heavier. The valorisé versions may be around the same weight as an M16.

I don't think it uses a lot of polymers plus it's made to resist the pressure needed to fire a grenade, so it has to be heavier.

That's why the GIGN doesn't use it a lot, it's too heavy for them and they don't need to use grenade launchers.

Why is it every single future soldier concept has the most dogshit computer integration? Curved screens are a thing. Decent capacitors are a thing. Integrated wifi is a thing. Touchscreens are a thing. Yet seemingly no developer has so far put together the brainpower to combine all these technologies into something like picture related, making such a device actually valuable and useful. They're always bulky pieces of shit with fuckloads of wires everywhere.

Believe it or not it takes a long time for components to be accepted as Milspec. They need to do all kinds of trials.

Unless it's specifically requested for a specific project it's not done - and if the project isn't absurdly funded then they just try and make do with what they have access to.

Many of those things you've listed would come at the cost of reliability and ruggedness, especially curved screens and touch control
