Stats / Data
The G3, or Gewehr 3, is a select-fire West German 7.62x51mm NATO battle rifle derived from the Spanish CETME rifle. Though replaced in service with the Bundeswehr by the G36 in 1997, the G3 still serves faithfully as the standard-issue infantry rifle of Greece, Jordan, and other countries.
In 1955, the West German government formed the Bundeswehr, and equipped them with surplus war equipment such as the M1 Garand. This was an immediate problem for two reasons. First, NATO countries were increasingly standardising on the 7.62mm cartridge (Where the M1 Garand was chambered in the 30.06 cartridge). And secondly, the M1 Garand was outdated by the time of the Bundeswehr's creation in Nov 1955, and could not compete with the Soviet AK rifles. Thus, West Germany was in dire need of a new, modern infantry rifle.
This problem was initially remedied by the FN FAL, which was formally adopted as the G1 rifle. However, this came to an abrupt end as FN and the Belgian government refused to license the FN FAL to Germany due to being invaded by Germany twice in recent memory. As a result, Germany kept looking for a new service rifle. During this scouting process, the Bundeswehr looked toward Spain and their recently developed CETME rifle. Ironically, the CETME rifle was developed by Mauser engineers who had worked on the StG-45, who then moved from Germany to Spain after the Second World War. Most notably, the CETME rifle utilized a roller-delayed blowback operating system that was designed to reduce recoil. Originally, the CETME rifle was chambered in 7.92x33 Kurz, which was the round used in the preceding StG-45 and StG-44 rifles. Spain was intent on selling the rifle internationally, and from this, the design found its way to Germany through the Dutch. However, Germany was interested in adopting a logistically-friendly rifle that used the NATO standard 7.62x51mm cartridge used by most other NATO nations. Modifications were made to the CETME design to allow use of this new round.
German rifle trials would see three rifles enter into the final stages of testing: the SIG 510 (G2), the revised version of the CETME rifle (G3), and the Armalite AR-10 (G4). The CETME rifle would be the design to pass the trial, and the G3 was then formally adopted by the Bundeswehr in 1959. The G3 would serve the West German military for the next several decades, and would be updated and modernized multiple times. Following the reunification of Germany in the 1990's, the G3 would be replaced by the G36 as Germany's standard infantry rifle in 1997. Today, hundreds of thousands of G3 rifles in various states of modernization are maintained by the Bundeswehr for use as reserve armaments.
As one of the earliest units that players can obtain (being available all the way back to during the GFL beta tests), G3 is definitely a main force for early players. Her illustrations are considered by some to be of comparable quality to some 5 star characters.
According to social media posts by G3's artist PHI, "the black units on both sides of the head are pyramid-shaped simple communication modules (they are non-detachable, so please do not do this to G3, warranty not provided if they are broken). They are also very sensitive, so if one touches them, G3 would feel that".

G3's mod3 character sheet produced by artist
- During Operation Trikora (Tri Komando Rakyat) in the Western New Guinea Conflict, Rheinmetall production G3 rifles with retractable stocks were exported to Indonesia for use by Indonesian Air Force paratroopers. However, the delivery was considered a violation of the Grundgesetz (Basic Law) in the German Constitution, which stated that German weapons manufacturers were restricted from exporting their weapons into active conflict zones.
- The G3 is the direct descendant of the StG-45, the first iteration of H&K's roller-delayed blowback small arms (like the SMG MP5MP5 ) and the first to harbor the 'H&K slap'.
- The Portuguese military has held the G3 in high regard ever since its adoption during the Portuguese Colonial War of the 1960s/1970s. The rifle was known as 'the soldier's girlfriend' during the war, and as Colonel Carlos Matos Gomes recorded, "the one with whom we slept or, in the barracks, was hung by the bandolier at the foot of the bed or at the head".
- In the EN and JP release of Girls' Frontline, this gun's name was changed to Gr G3, likely to avoid copyright issues.
- Other than G3 herself, the game has released 6 other characters derived from the G3 platform: SMG MP5MP5 , AR G41G41 ,AR HK33HK33 , RF PSG-1PSG-1 , MG HK23HK23 , and MG HK21HK21 .
