Historical basis[edit | edit source]
The M16 is the designation by the US military for the family of rifles developed from the Armalite AR-15. It is an assault rifle using standard 5.56mm NATO rounds. Former mainstay of US army since 1967, and used by 15 NATO countries, it is the most-produced model of all weapons of its caliber.
History[edit | edit source]
The development of the M16 started in the 1950s under the auspices of the military, and underwent a successful live trial in Vietnam in the 1960s, prompting the US Air Force to adopt the M16 in 1964. Many improved variants of the M16 followed, creating the M16A1. The M16A1 is the response to the need of a forward assist proposed by the military, as the original M16 had the problem of unable to completely lock the bolt. It changed the three-prong flash hider, which was plagued with problems such as catching dust and having branches/leaves stuck on it in a jungle environment, to a bird-cage style one. The early M16A1 had its barrel chrome-lined, to avoid problems arising from corrosion, with later versions chrome-lining the entire chamber. It is the main infantry weapon of the US Army from 1967 until the 1980s, when it was replaced by the M16A2, which in turn was replaced by the M16A4. The latter uses a flat-top receiver developed for the M4. The original version of this weapon remains in inventory for reservation purposes and for used by the National Guards and the USAF. The M16A3 is an improved model over the M16A2, and is used by the US Navy. Its predecessor, M16A2E3, has a full-auto capability not found on the M16A2. The US Army and the US marine uses the three-round-burst-capable M16A2, with the M16A2E3 mainly for export purposes, while the US Navy designates the M16A2E3 as the M16A3.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
A reliable big sister[edit | edit source]
In the AR squad,M16A1 is a veteran,a reliable big sister.Although she might look a bit unhinged, big-hearted, she possesses a calm mind, showing her reliable side when in critical situations. Possibly because of her age, she prefers articles from the eighties to nineties of last century.Those T-dolls even also
talk about age? Also,her image and role expresses her as a reliable veteran and a mature, calm warrior
which is perfect for a harem king
To indicate her veteran experience, the illustrator processed the overall tone to a relatively old and pale one, while using smart elements in the design. The eye patch and scar on the face exhibits a strong veteran presence and the profile of a big sister. In terms of clothing, the big weapon case on M16A1's back attracts much attention, but its contents remain unknown possibly some kind of unsurfaced exclusive extermination device.The pattern of the shemagh on her right hand is a hidden feature, only showing when she enters damaged state.
But as part of a high-quality AR team available even at level 10, it could be nice for the M16 to be the mainstay of Africans, eh?
Harem King[edit | edit source]
M16 is the harem king of the entire AR squad, judging from the plot, compared to M4 who is affected towards the commander and AR-15 who instead distances herself. Leaving
the puppy SOP II to stick around the commander from the very start.
The entire squad wholly trusts M16 with absolute loyalty. Now that's a big brother we have here.
With other members of the AR squad[edit | edit source]
This section may contain major spoilers!
Consider skip the rest contents if you are not yet familiar with all the latest media releases.
With ST AR-15[edit | edit source]
Mentioned that she knows AR-15 and the AR squad more, knowing that AR-15 escaped because she must had something she must settle in Episode 5.
When meeting AR-15 in Episode 6, she stated that she would knock her out and take her back if necessary, but AR-15 explained the situation and insisted on finding the Mastermind, which led to M16 hitting her. AR-15 tasked her to rescue her companions in trouble, and left SOP II and M4 to her.
Expressed a sense of helplessness and pain when RO said that the Jupiter cannon cut off the line to AR-15.
With M4A1[edit | edit source]
Saved M4 from the Agent from the start of the plot, and backed the entire squad. Constantly worried about M4A1, not caring even when getting slapped in the face by her.
Carried M4 out of Zone S08 at then end of Episode 6, when asked why it was her, replied "It's always me."
Told M4 to put herself together to command in the prison in Episode 7. Wanted to break out right to her death in the Emergency plot, telling Makarov "If... you survive... say sorry to M4 for me...".
Came back to her senses when SOP II called her twice in Operation Arctic, explaining what happened to M4. When she was knocked out after their transportation was shot down, dreamt that M4A1 was calling her to wake up, stating that she wanted to meet.
With M4 SOPMODII[edit | edit source]
Possibly viewing her as a little sister, caring for her in the story, as a reliable antecessor. Constantly teamed with her later on.
With RO365[edit | edit source]
Saved by RO from the brink of death in the Emergency portion of Episode 7, and drank alcohol with her at the bar in the end.
According to her creator, RO is the former housemaid and mistress of M16's. 
As to why they have such complex relationship.... try seeing this:Family tree of M16 (in Chinese)
With Squad 404[edit | edit source]
Has interesting relationships with UMP45 and HK416 from Squad 404, while the relationships with 9 and G11 is not mentioned.
Has a running feud with HK416, with the latter conflicting with her in the story through conversations, to the degree that 416 always goes to see her once she's been given a leave, wanting to break M16's leg whenever they meet. Which always results in a speedy takedown by the impervious 16-bro. Has known UMP45 long ago, and seems to have worked together. Their relationship isn't so bad, judging from the fact that UMP45 gave her intelligence and did not use force on M16.
It was revealed in Operation Arctic that she used to work with HK416 in a same team, which is also the reason why UMP45 deemed HK416 was still not fully part of Squad 404.
Every T-doll in contact with Squad 404 had their memories relating to the squad wiped clean, only with that of M16 having fragments remaining.
Mentioned by the Dreamer that her psychology map is the hardest to destroy, therefore attempting to destroy her physically in Episode 7.
In the trailer video for the Summer event 2017, Operation "DEEPDIVE", corresponding to UMP40 taking UMP45 forward is M16A1 taking HK416, without her eye patch. In the memory fragments of UMP45, M16A1 used to work with HK416 at National Security Agency 6, with her and UMP40, planning to conduct a capture operation which included infiltrating a Sangvis Ferri factory. For HK416's safety, M16A1 slapped her in the face to drive her away now that's why 416 has been trying to break her leg, without realizing that the mission of UMP40 and UMP45 was to interfere with the operation and cause the entire team to perish. The psychology map of UMP40 was completely destroyed after the mission was completed, but UMP45 survived, and came across another survivor (suspected to be M16A1). The two opened fire on each other, adding a scar on the left eye of UMP45, and an eye patch on M16A1's right one.
Fate of retired T-dolls[edit | edit source]
M16 revealed after knowing that ST AR-15 wouldn't be retired that "Oh that's ok. Otherwise we might need to see her in a café or a coal mine." Now let alone the café, what exactly do you mean by "coal mine"??
You seemed to have disclosed some very disturbing information, 16-bro. So it seems that T-dolls go to cafes or coal mines after they get retired.
But what M16 said was only part of what would really happen, since it was hinted in-game what would fall on retired T-dolls.
There's only 1 big brother at Grifon[edit | edit source]
For her numerous performances and combat appearances (including single-handedly taking out a batch of Sangvis Ferri units before M4 and the commander came to her rescue, subduing HK416 on the ground, standing-off with UMP45), and her threatening line "I will make your AI calculate the plausibility of suicide", she was given the nickname "16-bro" by players. F*** me 16-bro!
In addition to such, M16 also cherishes the AR squad and loves M4, with clues hinting that M16 took much for the entire squad. The story at the 3rd internal test included a scenario where HK416 used something regarding the AR squad to provoke M16, she turned cold and threatened the former, even saying "I'm going back to protect my little princess". Now that's a sentimental 16-bro! During the public test, HK416 indirectly stated that the weak spot of M16 is M4, which was quickly met with "now hold your words. Also, remember this time, otherwise I will make your AI calculate the plausibility of suicide."
Mysterious oversight[edit | edit source]
Though the weapon in her illustration seems correct, M16's chibi version uses an M4 (with a clearly visible telescopic stock and a shorter overall length).
Effect tiles[edit | edit source]
The update on 13 January, 2017, the one that implemented Operation "Arctic"  brought about a complete overhaul of all AR squad members.
The skill M16A1 was changed from a temporary Flashbang (since it stuns opponents in a 2 radius, and lasts for only a sec) to a longer one, with her effect tile(s) changing from the AR-effective keypad 7 to the now SMG-effective ones.
One of the 4 characters who first received a major overhaul in the game. Told you it is the AR squad.
Negligence in output?[edit | edit source]
As the only AR T-doll to not have an attachment slot (which translates into the inability to use output-oriented equipment such as night-combat equipment), she has two T-doll equipment slots capable of bringing two layers of armor plating or two types of exoskeleton......Effectively becoming the only friendly T-doll to earn an armor stat aside from SGs.
She got her exclusive equipment which introduces a massive decrease in accuracy and rate-of-fire (20 and 10, respectively).
Really turning her into an SG......
Well, of course, this does not mean that M16 is solely a meat shield, the combination of equipment is the real decisive factor.

The first Sangvis Ferricized T-doll?[edit | edit source]
|Episode 8, emergency, Spoiler alert|
| M16 was injected with the "Umbrella" virus for mission purposes, eventually causing it to take effect, and she was captured by the Dreamer. And according to the Dreamer, what she was implanted, was in fact...... the consciousness of the Mastermind herself......
Making M16 the second one to go rogue after sometraitor, but not willingly, with a reason better than that idiot.
As to her fate, reconciliation or destruction, we might as well wait for the official publication
M4A1……Wait for me to come back... No matter what I will have turned into then……
Mentioned by the Dreamer again in the end of Operation Deepdive, with the aim of
Of course it might be just a matter of time for her to be modified into a Sangvis Ferri unit, since the Dreamer already took her as a new friend.
