A photo of the short-lived but controversial M4A1(C), a modification of the M4A1 carbine speciafically for combat engineers.
Introduced in 2008, the chainsaw blade bolted to the M4A1’s handgrip was designed to help the pioneers hack through heavy bush, cut down trees, and otherwise aid in  removing obstacles.
Needless to say, there was widespread speculation over just what the chainsaw would be used for. After a series of incidents involving badly mutilated Iraqi insurgents, and being informed several times that it was contrary to the Geneva Convention, the USA withdrew the M4A1(C) from service.
