https://www.janes.com/article/83596/us- ... ad-weapons


DRAFT Prototype Opportunity Notice (PON) for Next Generation Squad Weapons (NGSW)
The weapons include the Next Generation Squad Weapon-Rifle (NGSW-R) and the Next Generation Squad Weapon-Automatic Rifle (NGSW-AR). These prototype OTAs will develop industry’s potential solutions/concepts through prototypes, user evaluation, and testing to ensure producible weapon systems that are safe, suitable, effective, and sustainable with a goal of delivering production representative weapon systems. A safe weapon system means the weapon system is free from conditions that can cause unintentional death, injury, occupational illness, damage to or loss of equipment or property, or damage to the environment. A suitable weapon system means the weapon system allows the Soldier to perform the mission with the resources provided. An effective weapon system means a combination of operational and technical effectiveness as determined by technical testing and operational testing/evaluation. A sustainable weapon system means the ability to maintain and train a system once fielded to continually meet the effective standards.
1.2 Background

The NGSW-R is the planned replacement for the M4/M4A1 Carbine and the NGSW-AR is the planned replacement for the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) in the Automatic Rifleman Role in Brigade Combat Teams (BCT).
“NGSW-R” refers to a prototype 6.8 millimeter rifle with sling, flash hider, suppressor, cleaning kit, flash hider/suppressor removal tool, and quantities of magazines required to provide a minimum of 210 stowed rounds.

“NGSW-AR” refers to a prototype 6.8 millimeter automatic rifle with bi-pod, sling, flash hider, suppressor, cleaning kit, flash hider/suppressor removal tool, and quantities of magazines/drums/belts/other required to provide a minimum of 210 stowed rounds.

AUSA 2018: SIG Sauer unveils .338 Norma Magnum-chambered MMG

Bild
SIG Sauer unveiled a new medium machine gun (MMG) chambered for the .338 Norma Magnum cartridge at this year's Association of the US Army symposium (AUSA), held in Washington, DC, from 8 to 10 October.

The weapon is thought to be a direct competitor to the General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Lightweight Medium Machine Gun chambered for the same round.

The exact system of operation of the latest SIG Sauer MMG is unknown, but Jane's believes that it is probably gas cycled. Company representatives who spoke to Jane's at AUSA were unwilling to reveal any particular details regarding the weapon, claiming that its system is "unique and novel".

On display at the show next to the MMG was a new kind of .338 Norma Magnum (NM) ammunition. SIG Sauer representatives were again unwilling to disclose any particular details, although one executive did confirm to Jane's that the casings of the new .338 NM cartridge are made of polymer to reduce the overall weight of the round, with a 'steel head' at the base.

Jane's understands the new MMG prototype has an approximate effective range of 2,000 m, weighs under 20 lb (9.1 kg) unloaded, and is in the early stages of development.

SIG Sauer Unveils Newest Entry into Small Arms Market
SIG Sauer also unveiled their MCX-MR (Medium Range) prototype, intended for the US Army's Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) programme. Next to the rifle, the company showcased their newly developed Hybrid Ammo, a three-piece metallic, non-polymer, design with a brass body, offering 20% reduction in overall cartridge weight as well as increased velocity over conventionally produced ammunition.

AUSA 2018: New details emerge on 6.8 mm Textron Systems NGSWs
Textron Systems confirmed to Jane's during the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) annual conference that its submissions for the US Army's Next Generation Squad Weapons (NGSWs) requirement - the NGSW-R (rifle) and the NGSW-AR (automatic rifle) - will be chambered for a 6.8 mm cased telescopic (CT) cartridge. Moreover, it is understood that the 135 grain 6.8 mm projectiles have been provided to NGSW bidders by the US government.

USSOCOM Completes Safety Certification and Purchase of SIG SAUER MG 338 Machine Guns, Ammunition, and Next Generation Suppressors

Bild

NEWINGTON, N.H., (January 15, 2020) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce the United States Special Operation Command (USSOCOM), working closely with SIG SAUER, has completed a safety certification of the new SIG SAUER MG 338 Machine Gun, SIG SAUER 338 Norma Mag Ammunition, and Next Generation Suppressors. Following this historic official safety certification, SIG SAUER has completed deliveries of multiple systems, comprised of the MG 338 Machine Guns, 338 Norma Mag Ammunition, and Next Generation Suppressors – all researched, designed, engineered, and manufactured by SIG SAUER in the U.S.A.
The SIG MG 338 bridges the gap between the current machine guns currently in use with the U.S. Military. In comparison to the current M240 (7.62x51cal) machine gun, which has been in service with the U.S. Military for 60 years, the SIG MG 338, is noticeably lighter, weighing only 20 pounds, and provides significantly more range and lethality. In comparison to the M2 (.50cal), which has been in service with the U.S. Military for 110 years, the MG 338 is approximately one-quarter the weight, and in a historic first, offers a man-portable solution with similar effective-range. Making this system even more desirable is the new SIG SAUER Next Generation Suppressors which drastically reduces the impact of harmful toxic fumes and signature, making the operator less vulnerable.

The SIG SAUER MG 338 machine gun is a belt-fed, lightweight medium machine gun weighing under 20lbs., chambered in 338 Norma Mag. The MG 338 features a short-stroke gas piston system and a proprietary recoil mitigation system, with a free-floating, quick-change barrel, ambidextrous controls, switchable feed tray, charging handle that can be alternated to either side depending on operator preference, and as a modern, multi-caliber, modular system the new SIG MG 338 is easily convertible to 7.62x51cal.
