General Dynamics
: 16 April, 2009  (Company News)
General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products, a business unit of General Dynamic, has been awarded a contract modification valued at approximately $28 million from U.S. Army Tank Automotive Command (TACOM), Rock Island, Ill., to produce M2HB machine guns.
This option modifies a contract originally awarded in 2007, bringing the total value to date to more than $100 million. Deliveries from this award are expected to begin in December 2009.

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

The guns will be produced at General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products' Saco, Maine, facility using its existing workforce. Since 1979, this site has delivered more than 25,000 M2 heavy barrel machine guns to the U.S. government.
