Hai,

IMI Tavor TAR-21 is the most powerful assault rifle. IMI Tavor TAR-21 is a 21st-century assault rifle that continues earlier trends of design: it has a compact bullpup layout, uses the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge, can be set up for left- or right- handed shooters, exists in several modular variants, is made of lightweight composite materials, and comes standard with a reflex sight.

it depends on how you define power. if power means range, then any assult rifle that fires the 7.62x51mm round. (.308 win) common rifles that fire this round are the m1a/m14 rifles produced by springfeild armory. if you define powerful as rate of fire, then the FAMAS G2. this particular rifle has a cyclic rate of fire between 900 to 1000 rounds a minute. it fires the 5.56x45mm m855 NATO round. if you define power as in how much damage the rifle can do to a target, then in my opinion it would be the colt xm177/ar-15/m16a2/m4 family of rifles. this family of rifles fires the m855 NATO/5.56x45mm round out to a maximum effective range of 975 meters. it also can defeat body armor. if you define power by sheer comonality on the battlefeild, then it would be the ak family of rifles. there is 2 distinct calibers in this family. the ak-47, fires a 7.62x39mm round. the ak-74, which is a modernized version of the ak-47, fires the 5.45x39mm round. both calibers can penetrate some body armor.

Assault Rifle is by NO means " a relative term". It signifies a selective-fire weapon that fires an intermediate-powered cartridge at ranges of 400m or less (typical battlefield small arms engagement ranges). If the weapon doesn't meet these criteria is simply a semi-automatic i.e., self-loading weapon. (By this definition the HK91 is NOT an "assault rifle" as it fires the full-power 7.62mm NATO round. However the AK series, and M16/M4 are considered such.) AFA "most powerful" that's almost an oxymoron as the cartridges are not full-power military loads. However there's a new 7mm round undergoing testing, that will have more knock-down power than the 5.56 issue round.
