They are fully aware, but gsg9 and KSK were not options (police and ootf respectively) fehrnsphaer are already in so kamphscwimmer and Fallschirmjager were the options and they opted for the latter. Not changing. Fallskjermjegere used to be the same for norway.

They can be renamed Terminätors. The memes are already there.

Didn't someone say that they were B1 Kommandos before or something like that?

yeah the proposal was to call em B1 Kommando

I would have loved to see more G11 though, probably for panzergrens. and G41 for the rest.
NEXT TIME I SEE A DAMN FLAMEWAR INVOLVING DARTH-LAMPSHADE, FROSTPOOKY, LONERIFLE, FADE2GRAY, TROTSKYGRAD AND/OR ANYONE INVOLVED IN A DISCUSSION BETWEEN THEM I'M GOING TO HAND OUT BANS TO ANYONE USING ANYTHING LOOKING REMOTELY LIKE AN AD-HOMINEM

Yes, I was one of them.

B1 Kommando would make the most sense and is actually the only option there is.
They were SOF and all it would take is basically a new unit portrait and turning Fallschirmjäger '90 into B1 Kommando, while turning the Fallschirmjäger into shock troops, preferably 15-men to fill a gap and compensate for losing Elite status.

+ Authentic
+ Fills a gap
+ Adds some flavor
- Will never happen

Doesn't make any sense at all. G11 was a unicorn prototype, why would you arm regular soldiers with that?!
G3 is the only authentic option, no idea why everyone wants to change things all the time just for the sake of changing something.
As long as it isn't authentic or beneficial for gameplay, why do it!?

There were 300,000 on order and it would have replaced every G3 in the Bundeswehr by 2002. It was canceled because the Cold War ended and the Bundeswehr's budget disappeared, so they had to stick with a weapon firing NATO-standard ammo (which G11 would not have been because ACR ended in failure).

It would fit Panzergrenadiers '95.

It wouldn't. G11 had severe problems with NATO standartisation (unique caseless round) thus it was never adopted.
In fact, even Elites don't deserve it imo.
