French GIGN gets new rifle and it's not the HK416

Most of us that grew up with Rainbow Six should not be unfamiliar with the name GIGN, which stands for Groupe d'intervention de la gendarmerie nationale ,  a dedicated special force in France for prevention of terrorist attacks and hostage rescue. 

Recently the GIGN signed up for a new assault rifle and it is not the HK416 (which was selected as the next service rifle of the French armed forces), instead the GIGN have choose the new CZ Bren 2 Assault rifle, the updated version of CZ Bren 805 assault rifle that is already in Czech service. Interesting choice we must say.
