It is far away from the stuff they used to do but it is still pretty impresive. From what I know they havent lost a single man on any deployment.

You can answer a few questions?

1) "Group 601" uses a Vz.58 or completely switched to the M4A1?
2) The new Czech rifle CZ 805 is used in Group 601?

Vz.58 are still in use and according to info I got they are very popular. I don´t think that they will be replaced any time soon. They are used mainly for greenside ops although many soldiers would prefer them everywhere else. Photos of 601 using them novadays are very rare though.

I don´t think that they will ever use CZ805. They issued new AR15 rifles (don´t know manufacturer and exact type - mayble Bushmaster again) just some time ago and they also use vz58 as mentioned above. Even regular soldiers are mostly unhappy with CZ805.

Vz.58 is very reliable and relatively small compared to AK47 and other 7,62 rifles. Modernized versions with RIS, M4 stock and other improvements are beloved by soldiers. On the other hand 805 is filled with 5,56 wich is not always a good choice especialy in czech enviroment, is heavy and not very comfortuble and those magazines are fvcking huge ! They are bigger than vz58. I have got a few friends in army and all of them prefer 58.

(in my opinion, according to price and final product, there was a huge corruption behind this

as i heard, the choice of weapon depends on the mission as well. vz58 is more reliable and 7.62mm is better for far-away target shooting, but the overall weight of full magazines and spare ammo compared to the .223 of ar15s is much higher. thats thing to consider for dismounted foot patrols...

I read something about replacing Bushmater with Sig 516, but it is not confirmed.

Yes, CZ805 is not used by 601.SFG, because it realy sucks. There will be a long way to finish CZ805 to fully functional weapon system.


BTW: interesting foto

Drax I believe that those AR-15 are probably M6 from LWRC and that is much better choice than Bushmaster. But even with these rifles are some problems as I have head from one of their users. They are bit picky about the ammunition.

And I agree with you... somebody f*cked up the whole tender.

Not sure, but heard something about CAG, may be it is true according HK416.


And about CZ805 - accesorries are really horrible.
-red dot is huge, heavy and has low life on battery
-accessories contains stupid weapon mounted NVD, huge without head/helmet mount options
