The Army's next-generation M4 carbine and M249 SAW replacements are coming sooner than you think

April 04, 2019
U.S. Army modernization officials told Congress recently that the service will begin fielding the 6.8mm weapons that will replace M249 squad automatic weapons and M4/M4A1 carbines in fall 2021.

Lt. Gen. Paul Ostrowski told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee's Airland subcommittee that the Army will down-select the winning automatic rifle and carbine versions of the Next Generation Squad Weapon (NGSW) as early as fall 2020.

The Army invited gunmakers to build the NGSW prototypes under a Prototype Project Opportunity Notice released in late January.

"We expect competitors to bring in their prototypes for both weapons systems in the month of May; we will begin the evaluation process and down-select down to three [companies] in the month of July of this year," said Ostrowski, who is the principal military deputy to the assistant secretary of the Army for acquisition, logistics and technology.

The service will then put all three companies' prototypes "through their paces," he added, with a down-select planned in the first quarter of 2021, and fielding in the fourth quarter.
[...]
The Army is banking on the new 6.8mm projectile it has developed, which it is providing to gunmakers so they can design a complete cartridge for their prototype weapon systems.

"We will provide the actual projectile; they will provide the common cartridge," Ostrowski said.

Subcommittee chairman Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, asked service officials to explain what the new cartridge will mean for the weight of new automatic rifle and carbine versions of the NGSW, compared to the current M4 and M249.

Ostrowski said the Army wants the new ammunition to weigh the same as the current 5.56mm.

"So polymer casings — case-telescoped, for instance — these are new and innovative ways that industry has been working to try to make sure that these rounds are not much heavier at all than the current 5.56mm rounds that we carry today," he said.

The Army finally has its hands on a next-generation rifle prototype

Army officials may have some lofty aspirations for the service's much-hyped Next Generation Squad Weapon, but at least they finally have an honest-to-God prototype to play with.

Textron Systems' AAI Corporation on Monday announced the delivery of its initial Next Generation Squad Weapon-Technology (NGSW-T) prototype demonstrator to Army combat capabilities officials to "inform the Army's formal NGSW program and include weapon and ammunition weight reduction, weapon sound suppression, as well as fire control integration technology," the company said in a statement.

The NGSW-T delivery is separate from the contract that AAI received alongside four other defense contractors last year to whip up prototype Next Generation Squad Automatic Rifles (NGSAR) for the service. That demonstrator should end up in Army hands by June of this year, according to the company.

U.S. Army will receive 100K NGSW weapons systems for replacing M4 and M249

Apr 21, 2019
The U.S. Army is looking to buy somewhere in the range of 100,000 of a very capable, lethal rifles under the Next Generation Squad Weapons (NGSW) program and 6.8-millimeter ammunition.

Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Mark A. Milley on 10 April said that somewhere in the range of 100,000 of NGSW will initially be purchased for Soldiers who engage in close-quarters combat.

According to the U.S. Army Contracting Command officials, the new weapons will include the Next Generation Squad Weapon-Rifle (NGSW-R) and the Next Generation Squad Weapon-Automatic Rifle (NGSW-AR).

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 the Close Combat Force.

Hmmm...das ging aber auf einmal doch schnell. Hätte ich nicht erwartet da bisher solchen Projekten immer die Luft ausging.

I stand corrected.

Naja, Textron hat Ende März Prototypen eingereicht und die U.S. Army stellt Haushaltsmittel für Forschung und Beschaffung ein.

Da dürfte die letzte Messe noch lange nicht gelesen sein.

US Army Selects Three Companies To Vie For Next Generation Squad Weapons to Replace M249 and M4
Last night, the Army announced the three companies which will proceed to Phase 2 of the Next Generation Squad Weapons Program. This solicitation is a Prototype Project Opportunity Notice (PPON), a Other Transaction Agreement under Section 804 Authority.

The PPON called for each vendor to develop two weapon variants under the NGSW program and 6.8 millimeter ammunition common to both weapons. This is NOT the 6.8 SPC cartridge evaluated by USSOCOM in the early 00s, but rather more akin to 270 WSM.

The three companies selected are:
W15QKN-19-9-1024 – General Dynamics-OTS Inc. – Williston, VT
W15QKN-19-9-1025 – AAI Corporation Textron Systems – Hunt Valley, MD
W15QKN-19-9-1022 – Sig Sauer Inc. – Newington, NH

Es wird langsam ernst mit der Ablösung der aktuellen Waffen. Was wirklich Revolutionäres ist nicht dabei, mal Neugierig wie es weiter geht.

Naja, ernst. Das OICW-Programm war schon wesentlich weiter.

Scheinen noch frühe Prototypen zu sein (unterschiedliche Griffstücke).
Und was ist der seltsame Zylinder am Karabiner (?)?

Das sind natürlich Prototypen.

Im Knubbel befindet sich eine Vorrichtung, die die Patronen vom Magazin ins Patronenlager schiebt.

Das ist mutig. Aber anders wird ein Außenseiter keine Chancen haben.
