Starting to see delivered prototypes, this is the SAW/GPMG type weapon. As I said, it's a 6.8mm bullet, with a proprietary casing. IOW, this is an experiment like SPIW, like OCSW/OICW, like so many before it.

The pessimist in me says it's all bullshit, being used as an excuse for the spending of taxpayer funds on green welfare R&D. This has been repeated over and over again. Like I said, you setup a program with real requirements, you have ONE (1) guy in charge, by name, by law if possible, and then if it's fucked up, at the very least you put that guy in prison. Ideally, you hang that SOB live on the emergency broadcast system on every channel, and put 10% of the "executives" in prison, and confiscate all their worldly goods.

We spend more money on "defense" than all other nations combined, and what do we have to show for it? Armored box trucks and guns/bullets that some dude at Camp Perry designed 15yrs ago in his basement or garage. It's like going to car dealership and they straight faced ask for Bentley money for a Hyundai Sonata with some RICE on it. And the "system" lets the crackhead parts fetcher employee you sent return brake drum cores sign away your entire business for it. S/F....Ken M
