The Heckler & Koch G36 is a 5.56×45mm assault rifle, designed in the early 1990s by Heckler & Koch (H&K) in Germany as a replacement for the heavier 7.62mm G3 battle rifle. It was accepted into service with the Bundeswehr in 1995, replacing the G3. The G36 is gas-operated and feeds from a 30-round translucent detachable box magazine or a 100-round C-Mag drum magazine.
Variants of the G36 include the G36E (Export), a full length export variant largely identical to the base G36, a shortened G36K (kurz, "short"), a further compacted G36C (Compact), and the light machine gun MG36.
The G36 and its variants appear in four games in the Battlefield series. The G36C appears in Battlefield 2, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, and Battlefield Hardline. The G36E and G36K only appear in Battlefield 2.
