Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
General Dynamics
: 26 August, 2009  (Company News)
The U.S. Army TACOM-Rock Island, Ill., has awarded General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products a four-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for the production of M2 flex machine guns.
Production under initial delivery orders valued at approximately $100 million is scheduled to be completed by April 2012. General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products is a business unit
of General Dynamics.



Dean Gagnon, General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products gun systems senior program manager, said, 'The M2 flex is a belt-fed, recoil-operated, air-cooled, crew-served weapon capable of right- or left-hand feed. The weapon's accuracy, durability and versatility make it ideal for offensive and defensive operations.'



The guns will be produced at General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products' Saco, Maine, facility, which has delivered more than 35,000 M2
machine guns to the U.S. government since 1979. Program management will be performed at the company's Burlington, Vt.-based Technology Center.
