Why the Aussies chose the Steyr AUG Bullpup

Steyr AUG instead of the M16A2

Did they tip the scales in favor of the Steyr AUG instead of the M16A2 because Colt wouldn’t get Australia the license to manufacture? Was the test biased? The fact that none of the Australia Special Forces community use the Steyr makes me suspicious. I’m always cynical about tests but maybe its telling the truth lets look at the data in this video!
In this video we investigate the pros and cons of this weapon. It was the first Bullpup rifle to ever be adopted into main stream service as a major country’s primary rifle. It was revolutionary for its time with a modular barrel system unlike pretty much anything seen prior in firearms.
