Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daewoo_K11

The Daewoo K-11 is either entering service right now as we speak or will be very, very soon.
It's the world's first OICW that's been entered into service.  The grenade launcher is fully integrated as is the electronic scope that can see at day, night and through smoke as well.

Here is a video:
ROK Army K11 OICW


At 6.1kg, it is heavy, but it is not intended as a replacement for the line rifle (though some sources claim this to be true).  It is heavy, but it's not as heavy as the M249/FN Minimi SAW so it's not exactly the worst thing that could happen to a rifleman.
Some videos have compared it to an M-4 with an M203 attachment and how it is worse because of the weight etc., but negates the fact that the K-11 is a full rifle which is capable out of the box for designated marksman duty in all weather.

Issues regarding this weapon will no doubt materialize... probably mostly with the electronics.  It's been thoroughly drop tested but I doubt they tied it to the back of a jeep and had it dragged over rocks.

your youtube vid shows a "Bad Request", maybe because it is censored?

Try just posting the link in front of the "&" character.
