The G11 project was a project which included 4 weapons (G11, G11 LMG, G11 NBW and G11 SMG). The G11 Series was developed during the Cold War to replace the G3 battle rifle; this never came to fruition.
In 1990, H&K finished the development of the G11, intended for the Bundeswehr and other NATO partners. Although the weapon was a technical success, it never entered full production due to the political changes of German reunification and lack of procurement contract.
