US army awards contract to design new automatic rifle

Wed, Jul 25, 2018, 10:33 AM
Earlier this month, the US army announced it had awarded contracts to five firms to develop prototypes of the next generation squad automatic rifle. The US army wants a new weapon that looks like a machine gun but packs the firepower of a battle tank. The new light machine guns should fire bullets at pressure levels similar to those achieved by tanks. The service said the rounds would be able to penetrate body armour even at a distance, allowing soldiers to engage a target at a safe distance.
