The automatic rifle has evolved considerably from its
rather single-minded battlefield role to become a
modular infantry-level system. This approach has
been seen in designs prior such as the Stoner 63 of
the 1960s and several more modern offerings since.
Ares Defense Systems has developed their new
Ares-16 family as just that - a single solution of
modular design that can be modified to fulfill a variety
of battlefield roles including that of assault carbine,
assault rifle and light machine gun. In many ways the
Ares-16 is a further evolution of the globally popular
AR-15/M4/M16 family of automatic weapons
complete with its classic M16-styling. The patented
receiver unit is officially configurable as a sub-
carbine, carbine, assault rifle, Designated Marksman
Rifle (DMR), assault machine gun (magazine- or belt-
fed) and mounted machine gun. With its lightweight
construction, the Ares-16 family provides the balance
of the more compact M4 Carbine with the firepower
inherent of a larger Light Machine Gun (LMG) such as
the M249 SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon) - more or
less in the body of the M16.
The Ares-16 family is headlined by the Ares-16
"MCR" ("Modular Combat Rifle") which is the base
assault weapon form. It sports a familiar M16-style
receiver unit the angled, ergonomic pistol grip,
forward-set magazine well and collapsible butt stock.
The magazine well accepts the standard M16-style
curved magazine and is chambered for the
5.56x45mm NATO (.223 Remington) cartridge. There
is a section of MIL-STD 1913 rail across the top of
the receiver for the mounting of optics to couple with
the standard front and rear iron sighting devices. The
handguard shrouding the barrel at the receiver is
perforated for proper heat dissipation and also sports
sections of rail for additional accessories to be
mounted in the form of laser aimers, tactical
flashlights and even an adjustable bipod (for the fire
support role). The barrel is interchangeable (marketed
as a "quick change" design) to suit operator tastes
and mission requirements and comes in lengths of
12", 16.25" and 20". Barrels are furthermore capped
by and M16-style slotted flash suppressor and can be
fitted with a sound suppressor for clandestine work.
Due to its use of lightweight alloys, the lightest
configurable Ares-16 form is a handy 7.5lbs. With the
16.25" barrel in place, the weapon measures 34.55"
long (876mm). The action is of a gas-operated, open-
bolt design using a short stroke tappet which allows
for a rate-of-fire between 625 and 1,000 rounds per
minute out to 600 meters. To maintain the flexibility
of preceding M4/M16 marks, the Ares-16 also
supports an underslung grenade launcher to broaden
the tactical flexibility of the standard infantryman.
The AMG-1 ("AMG" = "Assault Machine Gun") is the
belt-fed, Light Machine Gun (LMG) version of the
Ares-16 family. It is fed through the NATO standard
M27 linked ammunition belt. All other functions of the
rifle remain the same including barrel length options,
rate-of-fire and the gas-operated action. The AMG-2
is also a belt-fed design but also supports feeding
from M16-style detachable box magazines. All of the
Ares-16 weapons support select-fire though  
management along the receiver side.
The Ares-16 family is recognized as a "One Weapon,
Any Mission" solution according to Ares Defense. Its
use of the standard 5.56mm NATO cartridge certainly
opens it up to many current and former US arms
allies and its commonality of parts with other
members of the Ares-16 family certainly broaden its
logistical appeal to those forces considering
procurement of the weapon is number. The design's
multirole features could prove of some value in the
fluid, largely urban, fighting fronts being encountered
