(This is the KSK/special forces rifle not the A8 the new standard Bundeswehr rifle )
The HK 416 was often tipping as the next UK standard service rifle, but since then Colt Canada has pipped them to the post to become the 'limited' standard rifle.

The A3 rebuild of the L85, takes care of the bulk of the Armed forces in the interim.

This combination comfortably takes us to 2030, when we will probably go with the new US calibre.
