sorry it is About 460 rpm is the requirement but this model isz not for sale
This weapons is invalid it only does 260 RPM.

U need a minimum of 450 RPM ,

Also there are other requirements.
That have not gone unmentioned.

Here are all the known requirements.


AMMO : 12.7mm x 99mm A.K.A ( .50 calibre )

RANGE: a minimum effective range of not less than 2,000-metres.

Length of HMG: no more than 1.6 m-long

Weight of HMG: should weigh no more than 40 kg

the weapon should have the capability to be used from a Light Strike Vehicle/Infantry Fighting Vehicle and in a ground role while mounted on vehicle and tripod respectively.

The weapon should be easy to carry by the three men crew in dismantled condition and be assembled with ease while being used in the ground role.

The weapon should be robust enough to withstand rough usage and simple to maintain in operational conditions normally encountered in India including high altitude areas, jungles and desert.

The gun should of course be capable of firing High Explosive Incendiary (HEI), Armour Piercing High Explosive (APHE), Armour Piercing Discarding Sabot (APDS), Target Practice (TP) and corresponding tracer ammo.


These are the minimum requirements of the weapons. Baring an rethink after trials.

The specs put out are in fact almost identical to the superb Browning M2HB HMG .



The only competitor, to the M2 which is almost a sure win is the.

XM806 Lightweight .50 Caliber Machine Gun (LW50)



The XM806 Lightweight .50 Caliber Machine Gun (LW50) is a .50 caliber heavy machine gun spun out from the canceled XM307 and being developed by General Dynamics to augment the M2. The XM806 will be 50% lighter and have 60% less recoil than the M2, and have a greater rate of fire than the failed previous attempt to replace the M2, the XM312. The XM806 also has improvements to user safety and is easier to disassemble. General Dynamics received a $9 million contract for the weapon. It is expected to be deployed starting at the end of fiscal year 2011.
Some notes on both the M2 and XM806

Army eyes new, lighter machine gun
By Matthew Cox - Staff writer
Posted : Tuesday Apr 28, 2009 11:41:58 EDT
The US Army wants to field a new .50-caliber machine gun that’s about 64 percent lighter than the venerable Ma Deuce.

Weapons officials classified the General Dynamics-made lightweight .50-caliber machine gun as the XM806 in March, clearing the way for further testing of the radical new design.

While it would not replace the M2 .50-caliber machine gun, also known as Ma Deuce, the Army hopes to field the 18kg XM806 in 2012 as a lightweight alternative to the 38 kg M2, said Lt. Col. Mike Ascura, product manager for crew-served weapons.


“Now that it is an experimental weapon, we will look at the design … and determine if the gun meets the needs of the Army to move forward as a program of record,” he said. “There is some real potential here.”

The XM806 is an offshoot of the XM307, a crew-served weapon that fired 25mm airburst ammunition and featured a high-tech fire control system.

The Army began developing the XM307 in the 1990s for its Future Combat System, but the program was shelved as the result of budget cuts in 2007.

But the Army’s Infantry Center released a new requirement for a lightweight .50-cal machine gun later that year, giving the futuristic design a second chance.

The XM806 no longer features the computerized fire control system but can now fire the same M9 linked ammunition that the M2 uses.


The rate of fire on the XM806 is much slower than that of the M2 — 250 rounds per minute compared to the M2’s 500 rounds-per-minute rate. This helps to make the weapon easier to control and more accurate, Ascura said.

The lighter recoil also means the XM806 can use a lightweight aluminum frame instead of a more rigid steel frame like that of the M2, which greatly reduces the XM806’s weight.

Currently, the M2 is mounted on everything from Humvees to heavy armored vehicles.

Army officials maintain that the XM806’s lightweight design would allow combat units to use it in a limited dismounted role such as over-watch and support positions, Ascura said.

If all goes well, the Army plans to buy 12 XM806s for developmental and operational tests between now and 2011, Ascura said. The Army has not decided how many XM806s it intends to field, Ascura said, adding that he could not give cost estimates for the program.

“We hope to field this as early as 2012,” he said. “Right now, the plan for it is to augment the M2; the maneuver forces still need that high rate of fire found in the M2.”

What the hell is going on, that weapon flash is humongous .

you just be announcing to the whole world, i am here shoot me.

Are they using some kind of ammo for cinematic effect or what.

Also that weapons fails to meet the minimum effective range of 2000 meters.

The weapons are also longer the minimum length of 1.6 m

So essentially this weapons would not win due to Range, Length and that Humongous flash.

Concord 8 (C8) is a four-wheel drive lightweight rugged armoured vehicle designed for the Indian defence market. Developed by Concord Safety Systems, the Indian partner of Arotech, the vehicle offers high mobility and bullet-proof protection. The prototype of the vehicle was manufactured at the Dehradun Concord facility.

Drivable on all terrain types, the vehicle is ideal for combating an insurgency, transporting logistics, providing protection to reconnaissance and convoys, and conducting search and rescue missions.









The C8 is currently undergoing trials with the Northern Command of the Indian Army. It will be delivered to the Indian paramilitary and police forces before the end of 2010.

Design

The C8 has been designed using the expertise derived from the development of David MDT's lightweight armoured vehicle. Based on the Indian 4×4 platform, the C8 can accommodate up to six soldiers, and a driver, along with their entire combat gear and loads.

The vehicle is air-conditioned with interiors designed to provide maximum flexibility. Doors are wide enough to enable quick entry and exit. The seating arrangement is flexible and can be customised in to either a four or a six-seat configuration.

There are five gun ports and 12V/24V battery options. To withstand the impact of a massive collision, the vehicle has been installed with heavy duty bumpers.

At the rear of the vehicle, two multipurpose storage boxes have been fitted in case additional ammunition is required. A blower attached inside the C8 absorbs acid gases released when the soldiers are shooting from inside the vehicle.

A four-wheel drive, the C8 is equipped with a power steering and run-flat tyres. The vehicle also has water-fording capability and a high ground clearance. At the minimum level, the ground clearance level of the C8 is 190mm, while the maximum ground clearance level is 207mm. The payload capacity of Concord is up to 650kg and the vehicle has a double wishbone suspension system.

The C8 has optional features including a communication system, a GPS, a PA system, siren, radio and a remote-controlled searchlight. The vehicle can also be equipped with a beacon, communication racks, additional ammunition box holders and selective up-armouring. The fuel tank can be provided with additional protection. The body of C8 can be extended to increase the inside space of the vehicle.

C8 engine

The C8 is equipped with a 3l Dura Torque TDCi engine with variable geometry turbo charger. It provides a horse power of 115kW at 3,200rpm. The C8 features a five-speed manual gear box and has a common rail direct injection fuel system. The vehicle's air pressure tanks have a maximum capacity of 71l.

The C8's power-to-weight ratio is over 25kW/t. Its high power-to-weight ratio enables it to transport extra combat loads while providing powerful ballistic protection to the crew compartment, engine and fuel tank. The engine is provided with ballistic protection up to level B-6.

Concord 8 protection

The Concord provides protection from Grenade splinters, even those that fall on the sides of the vehicle, which are composed of ballistic steel that can withstand direct hits of the 5.56×45mm Indian National Small Arms System (INSAS) and 7.62×39mm AK47 and 56 rifles.

However, the vehicle is not fitted with any weapons and cannot provide protection from mine blasts.

Contractors

The C8 has been developed by Arotech's Armour division in India, Concord Safety Systems, which is a joint venture between MKU, JN Group and MDT Armour Corporation. The joint venture was formed in January 2006 to design and manufacture armoured vehicles in India.

David MDT

A key vehicle in the portfolio of MDT, David, from which the C8 is derived, is a light weight armoured vehicle designed for low intensity conflict. Composed of extremely-high-hardness steel and composite materials, the vehicle offers AP protection to a troop of seven. It can accommodate up to six passengers at any given in addition to the driver. David has been adopted by the Israel Defence force for its standard operations including armoured reconnaissance and patrolling.

NEW DELHI: After the real world, the armed forces are on a red alert in the virtual world as well. Even as they tackle Chinese troop intrusions

on the ground, they are grappling with a sharp increase in online espionage attacks from across the Line of Actual Control as well.

Top sources say the Army-CERT (computer emergency response team) recently issued the high alert to all military formations and installations to guard against "focussed large-scale cyber attacks'' that are being planned on "internet facing'' government organisations, prominent brands and corporate groups.

Quoting "reliable'' information, the alert ominously warns the cyber-attacks are likely to be launched from this month onwards. The date mentioned, in fact, is March 31. Effective measures must be taken to protect networks from data-thefts, "distributed denial-of-service attacks'', paralysing computer viruses and the like, it says.

Sources said several military establishments, including the Defence Services Staff College at Wellington, had even refrained from using computers directly connected to internet modems for three-four days over the last week as a precaution. Though the alert holds the cyber-attacks can originate from any country across the world, the suspicion is firmly on Chinese hackers.

This comes even as a group of Canadian and American cyber-security researchers in the new report, `Shadows in the Cloud', held that China-based online espionage gangs have accessed classified documents from several Indian defence and security establishments.

The defence ministry preferred to remain quiet, only saying that it was "studying the report'' which had "lot of grey areas''. Blasting this "clueless state of affairs'', experts said Indian agencies really needed to bolster cyber-security measures as well as sharpen their own cyber-warfare or information warfare skills.

China, in particular, has made cyber-warfare one of its topmost military priorities, with Chinese hackers regularly breaking into sensitive computer networks of countries like US, UK, Germany and India. In December last year, for instance, Chinese online espionage agents had even tried to penetrate computers in the Indian national security adviser's office.

The new report, for instance, says the researchers came across one Indian encrypted diplomatic correspondence, two documents marked `secret', six as `restricted' and five as `confidential' which were accessed by the Chinese hackers.

Moreover, the "affected'' institutions ranged from National Security Council Secretariat and several Indian embassies to the 21 Mountain Brigade in Assam and the Air Force Station at Race Course in New Delhi, which is bang opposite the PM's official residence.

Apart from files related to India's surface-to-air missiles systems and Shakti artillery command and control systems, the people `compromised' included even an officer of the directorate-general of military intelligence.

"Cyber-warfare can be even more destructive than missile strikes, crippling as they can economic, communication and strategic networks and infostructure,'' said a senior officer.
