The M16A2 was first real upgrade of the M16 platform since the Vietnam War. Lessons learned during the Vietnam War lead to adjustable rear sights, a heavier barrel and stronger handguards for a major improvement. These were used throughout the Global War on Terror in Afghanistan and Iraq and are now being used by forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces via friendly nation donations.
