General Dynamics Awarded $18 Million for Production of M2HB Machine Guns
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), was awarded an $18.4 million contract from U.S. Army tank Automotive Command, Rock Island, Ill., for the production of M2HB machine guns.
