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.

Well, it's been said well, but I'll say it again...do what feels right for you. It's your gun. I use mine mainly as a hand stop...but sometimes as a back scratcher.
