another IDF staple
Because the FAL was not just IDF but also NATO. Thats why. And if they are still using the G3 why not the FAL too?
Also because the insurgents get the SKS as a higher calibre single shot rifle on most of their classes too. Why not give the security forces the FAL in most classes. Since they are comparable guns but the Security forces are lacking a semi automatic rifle. (I would have no problem if it wasnt select fire...)
Just like the security forces should have access to the AKM and its variants, Many contractors use the AK due to its sheer reliability and availability.
I mean hell, these arent the "american military forces" its the "security forces," with local forces as well, so naturally they should have at least some Variation of an AK there.
