The new paradigm shifting round meets or exceeds all requirements of the NGSW program. It has demonstrated that it provides increased muzzle velocity and effective range, 50% more than 7.62x51mm. It also weighs 30-percent lighter.
Unlike others that avail themselves of higher DOD anticipated chamber pressure to achieve DOD’s required levels of performance, the revolutionary round maintains normal chambers’ pressures at safe operating levels of tested existing weapon systems.
This video shows 6.8 TVCM ammo running in some currently fielded weapons. The footage shows the M240B belt-fed machine gun, M110 SA sniper rifle, and the M134 rotary “minigun”. Current ‘in service barrels’ are switched with 6.8 barrels during the demo proving that using their ammo in barrels chambered for it, is just a simple barrel swap for these systems. Impressive, No?
