L96A1 is simply the British designation for the AW and the AW-F simply refers to it having the folding stock.

A few countries use the AW but all have their own rail (and other) modifications to their specifications.
So the SR98 and the L96A1 are not the same weapon, that's all I'm saying. The AW is not the same as the AW-F, the folding stock is a pretty big difference in my book, especially for this style of weapon, and if AI sees fit to define them seperately, then I shall do the same. That was all I was saying.
