The FAL was designed by FN originally as an assault rifle that would chamber the 7.92x33mm Kurz ammunition developed and later was to be based off the STG-44. The weapon underwent various prototypes; including a bullpup design and the British Army wanted to see if it could be wedded to their intermediate .280 British caliber ammunition.
Later on; a deal was reached with President Harry Truman to have the FAL designed to NATO standards; which eventually made the weapon a 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition. Throughout the years; the FAL has been utilized by multiple armies, branches of the military, law enforcement and other personnel; as well as being in many wars.
To this very day; the FAL has been used since it's creation. The weapon was mainly used in semi-automatic fire because the weapon was uncontrollable when in full automatic fire due to the hard hitting 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition.
Despite it's drawback in full automatic fire; the FAL has been proven to be the best weapon as a sniper rifle and battle rifle. Members of the Black Beret Corps like Alpha Wolf are known to carry rifles like these when it comes to heavy combat and it has proven to be one of the best weapons on the field.
