Are vertical foregrips a necessity on the SCAR?

I'm not a SCAR owner yet (17S hopefully soon) but from searching the internet and looking at some videos it seems that a vast majority of owners/shooters have a vertical grip of some sort.

Is there something about the SCAR's fore-end that causes a lot of folks to put on a vertical grip?

Is it too wide to grip comfortably or is it because of the lack of handguard space like the KAC RAS found on the M4 and M4A1 Carbine?

I don't use a vertical grip on my AR-15's to get the best accuracy possible so I was hoping that my habits and set-up on the SCAR 17 could closely mimic what I usually do.

I've got them on my 2 SCARs but they only are on there for the SHTF situation. When I take mine shooting either for hunting or off the bench the fore grip comes off. Mine incorporates a good light and laser so to me it kills several SHTF items with one stone so to speak.
