It's truly forward-thinking. In countries where the laws require trigger locks while transporting guns, it gives you both a means of firing it in an emergency anyway, and plausible deniability for why it fired.

According to Kikepedia those little square tabs on the top, the ones that would break off the first time you dropped the thing, are LCD screens with sighting displays.

Because soldiers would be issued with ammo clips instead of magazines.

Basicallly you pop open a side panel on the magazine, flip a tab to retract the follower inside, put your clip in, close the panel and release the tab again.

This system was meant to reduce weight, because you no longer had to carry around magazines.

Instead of spending time loading individual rounds into magazines, it was also assumed that issuing standard-size ammo clips instead of individual rounds and magazines would save time.

There are sadly almost no pictures of it, and no video of it being operated, so we will never know just how autismic the system was.

But wait, there is more German 'tisms!

You know those Soviet GSh-23 guns? The ones on pretty much every soviet aircraft after the second world war? The ones that are in use until this day and have an insanely high maximum rate of fire, but can be adjusted to shoot slower on the fly? The ones mounted on Mil 24, Su25 and anything that is roasting Kebab in Syria right now?

Well, that's a German system invented by Karl Gast in 1916. Essentially it's two machine guns mounted together, but the recoil produced by one of them operates the other. Again, not much is known and there are even fewer pictures available. I am not even sure if there is a surviving model outside of the former Soviet Union.

How the hell did they manage to make something that's even worse than ww1 French rifles? They could have used a clip like the Garand; they could have made a replaceable magazine that can be loaded in the rifle like the Lee-Enfiled; they could have made it belt-fed with a feed system similar to what the Schwarzlose machine gun has. Instead they invented a rectangular wheel.

To be fair, it's still an imporvement over the dump-loading of the Ross Mark I. Although it's nearly the same system, just with the addition of a clip to hold the cartridges in place. But then you could add a charger guide to the Ross and then it would work just like any other charger-loaded firearm, with the unnecessary option to throw in a few loose cartridges. I think I'm going to get a stroke from this abomination of a loading system.
