HK G56 by AlexJJessup HK G56 by AlexJJessup
Description in the image! A lot of the design is based on existing guns/parts. I was trying to design more from the standpoint of "I work for HK and want to develop a rifle to replace the M4" as opposed to "I just want to draw cool guns."

One of my coworkers is building my G56 design and doing a video series on polycount, check it out!

This is excellent. I really like how you've designed a realistic, plausible rifle instead of making something that's cool but nonsense like so many other gun designs are. Well done good sir! Clap 

Now make a light machine gun variant. EVIL Laughter!

Badass and awesome :dummy: But am I the only one that hates the foregrip and would never put it on a gun in real life scenarios?

i like were your going with this, i drew up plans for a mod to a M1a that works the simalure to that but more simple (just goes down in front of the mag) so i can fire .464 mag. in rapid fire,

I absolutely love the design for so many different reasons, first and foremost, they look amazing, and beyond plausible, secondly, I really wish people would "design" or at least illustrate "futuristic" weaponry with the Kriss Vector recoil reduction type design. Honestly amazing.

It's always funny seeing the comments. Folks claiming certain EOtech/Aimpoint models will be obsolete by whenever this rifle enters use. There's really nothing magical about a red dot or holosight. All they do is offer faster (parallax-free) acquisition and improved field of view over iron sights. Any other bells and whistles added will push beyond their intended use.

The only major improvements in electronic reflex sights will be battery life, reticle visibility, reliability, and durability - the actual devices are not going to look fundamentally different decades from now, considering form follows function.

Don't listen to that dickhead ScrewFaceWhatever. Thanks to things like 'pimp my gun' everybody and their brother thinks they're a mechanical engineer. Far as your work goes, I like it. My only criticism would be that HK seems to have a phobia for soft shapes, and would probably cover it in menacing-looking angles. I like that you put effort into the inner workings, and as far as the Super V is concerned, I'd say it fits right in here; it's a future gun! It's supposed to be complex and over the top.

haha thanks man. I get a massive amount of criticism from 'experts' who don't get that it's a design for games/film. It's meant to be fictional; I'm not an engineer. 
That's good feedback, and if I were to redo it now I'd definitely go more that direction. Thanks! :)

Well, To be constructive in my Critique There Are a few issues to be worked out. 

First is the Designation G56 Is a German Rifle designation G stands for gewehr Or Rifle in German M would be a American Designation.

Next
 is operation, The "Super V" operating system would not Work in the method you want for the power of a Intermediate Rifle Cartridge as Described. the bolt would push past the floor plate of the rifle. Also you have borrowed the gas block of a piston operation looks like the XCR. So you would have some kind of Hybrid operation Which would be a totally new one on me. I am not sure it would or could even work.

second is the Accessory system and Accessories
The Rail system you have is borrowed form the XCR. But by 2023 The Army and Marines are probably going to push for Either KeyMod or a M-lok System On the forearm with the Exception of the 12 O'clock position.
Either Keymod or M-Lok reduces weight, removes the need for rail covers making it more user friendly and still allows adding of rails when wanted. Given the way they work I think M-lok would be the best option.

Then You have the Eo-tech sight Which as been pointed out would be a Antique by 2023.
In your other work You Have a Tracking point Sight a Shortened version of that should be mounted on this. Tracking point is already mounting there Wheres on AR rifles, and this has the room for the Controls.
the Final point is a Compliment Sir This is a neat looking concept and you were smart enough not to show it firing Brass and with a Unique magazine.

Thus point to the US Army is invested in the LSAT program which offers Cased Telescoped and Caseless Telescoped Ammo.   
That said I wish you had modeled a Polymer Magazine. 
In terms of Barrel length The Army has been pushing Shorter and 6.8 SPC2 is optimized for Shorter barrels 14.5 inches Standard, 11.5 inch for regular SF A 8.3 Inch PDW Which I feel would have been a better option to partner with the Barrett Sniper Rifle.

most likely for the operation would be super V. if the KRISS group was to make a rifle using the super v operation it would look almost like this

ImperialTerran Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2014
Once again the issue then falls back to the pressure produced by a full power intermediate cartridge the blowback even in the Super V's redirected form would cause a catastrophic failure of the lower receiver and the recoil directed downward would in fact cause more Cons' then pro's in a cost benefits.

What is this fetish people have for sticking the Super V mechanism on ALL THE THINGS!!11!!one?

Kriss doesn't work that way, and even when it does work, it's an overly complex, overly heavy, overly finicky, overrated solution to a problem that doesn't exist. It's like an AN-94, or a Segway.

Hey, if you're just going to deflect criticism with hot air, feel free. It's really a shame that almost nobody in the concept design community is willing to accept any criticism whatsoever these days. That's how you get shit like last man standing.

Erm. Alex works at Sledgehammer Games. He doesn't need your crit within this field.

Your opinion is just that chap. An Opinion. He design's these guns for GAMES. Not real life.
We, the conceptual art community know the difference between what is real and what is FUN. Design is simply that; if it looks cool, and it plays cool, then realism isn't an issue. If we designed things to be real world then we would all be playing ARMA III and running through fields for 6 hours on end.

Whereas you work at White Knight Incorporated.

I don't give half a shit where someone works. George Lucas owns Lucasfilm, but he's still an idiot. Putin owns Russia, but he's still a psychopath. A good artist knows that nobody knows everything, and can accept critique without having to check credentials first.

Why are you so butthurt about this? It's not even your work. Do you hope Jessup-Senpai will notice you, or do you just have nothing better to do?

Hey, guess what? "This is cool" is an opinion. "This is fun" is an opinion. "This would not physically function in the real world" is a fact. I do have an opinion on it though: the Kriss Super V system is overused, stupid trash for COD kiddies and mall ninjas. Maybe you don't feel it's bound by realism, but as something for games, and as art, it's nice to see some creativity. And using the most overused, super 1337 tactical 360 noscope action ever is most certainly not creative.

There is a line between fun, creative stuff and sheer stupidity. This is the latter.

lol WOW. Just....WOW. 

You literally don't have the first clue about entertainment design do you?
Your opinion is a minority is my point, if the minority AND his employers (Creditable employers) have different opinions to you then that is what flies. As for "Senpai to notice me." I wouldn't go looking for a job at sledgehammer via shitty deviantArt through one of their junior artists- that's the dumbest shit I've ever heard. 

A line between fun and stupid? Dude, he has a job, you have a bunch of generated screenshots of guns which you found from a gun compiler online and youre critting the entire "Conceptual community" for being stupid? Shit, we'd better call up DICE, iW, TreyArc, SledgeHammer and all the other FPS triple-A studios because clearly YOU know whats going on and they need to get into a bidding war for you're exceptional talents and inputs of fact. 

Good luck at the idiot awards son.

I'm noticing a pattern here. That pattern is that you lot have a tendency to resort to bluster and hot air as soon as someone calls you on your elitism and stupidity.

So, first he's the bestest leader with a real job and now he's junior artist on a shitty website? Look out Romney, someone might have you beat in the story-changing Olympics.

First, you really need to see someone about your anger issues. That kind of angst is bad to carry around.

Secondly, if you'd bothered to look closely, you'd notice that my work is not, in fact, PMG. The linework, shading and color pallet are distinct from PMG, and the transparent backgrounds negate theory of it being a screenshot, given that PMG has a white background by default. You can look for antialiasing caused by editing the file in Photoshop to remove the background, but you won't find any.

Furthermore, even if it *was* PMG, or even photobashing (which is 90% of what the self-proclaimed concept artists on dA actually do), regardless of your elitist whinging, I still have more technical knowledge than you. And honestly, I'd rather be knowledgeable and intelligent than make pretty photobashes and white knight for other photobashing idiots on the internet.

I'm not looking for a job in the industry. Because the industry caters to idiots and CoD kiddies and other trash. The fact that elitist white knighting fools like you associate yourself with them just proves it. They don't care if something is retarded, as long as they can claim it's the most "realistic" military shooter and sell it to 12 year olds. Video games are 90% shit nowadays. No way I'd want in on that.

Hey, thanks. I hear they're broadcasting it after your acceptance speech at the butthurt white knight awards.

But, seriously. Let's do an expairiment: how about instead of raeging like the 1337 tier one navy seal operator we all know you are, or ignoring my points, or changing the subject and/or your tune, you actually respond rationally, like a human. Would that be so hard? It is for science, after all...

Realistic features in a futuristic yet grounded design. Looks like a gun that would be effective, functional and something i would love to own.  I love deviantART!

Hope to see more of this and maybe a story behind the "weather-control" attacks mentioned in other drawings.

Keep up the great work :) (Smile)

This design is fantastic. I'm an Infantry officer and an aspiring military SF writer, so I have a huge interest in future weapons. This is one of the more realistic future rifle concepts I've seen. I like that it's a logical progression of the KRISS design.

The design would be doomed to fail. Part of the Super V design is it's bulky clunkinshitson crudblubfrogjegojei Kriss recoild reduction system.
As of now the way you have the magazine placed, asthetically it looks good, but functionally the super V wouldn't even be able to rotate. 
As well as even in your reduction system sketch, you oversized the system. 
The magazine, and shell ejection port would need to be moved forward for the system to look plausible.
