Historical Description[]

Colt's M16 line of automatic rifles originated from the push to replace the American service weapons from World War II. U.S. troops carried a battle rifle called the M14 in the early stages of the Vietnam War, but in the 1960s ArmaLite's AR-15 was adopted under the army designation M16. One of its key innovations was using 5.56x45 mm rounds rather than 7.62x51 mm. This influenced NATO to adopt the smaller cartridge as its standard in 1980, spurring the development of a new generation of rifles all over the world.

The M16A1 improved on the poor reliability of the original M16. Automatic fire was swapped out for a three-round burst mode in the M16A2, back in with the M16A3, then out again with the M16A4. The fourth iteration also has a detachable carrying handle and Picatiny rail system which can accept a wide range of accessories. M16s have been exceptional standard assault rifles for America and dozens of her allies for decades. However, parts of the U.S. military have recently been phasing out the M16A4 in favor of a shortened variant known as the M4 carbine.



Attacking Strategies[]

  • Advanced RGJ Rifleman is cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use Advanced RGJ Rifleman to protect heavy infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.
  • Since Advanced RGJ Rifleman can deal more damage to foot troops, bringing some along with Heavy Infantry and/or Heavy Cavalry will help deal with pesky defending foot troops!
  • Make sure to keep the Advanced RGJ Rifleman behind your 'meat shields' or away from danger.

Defensive Strategies[]

  • Advanced RGJ Rifleman can be used as good Alliance Troops. One example is that they can shoot over walls to attack troops of the attackers forcing the troops to destroy the wall to kill them. Another thing is that they're good against other Heavy Infantry.
