The USA wants to make the NSV machine gun. And the only license is owned by Kazakhstan
American spies are tired of buying Kalashnikov assault rifles and machine guns from dubious and greedy arms dealers. And they decided to establish such a production at home.
Why does the American special forces need assault rifles and machine guns developed by Russia? The answer is obvious – just look at any randomly selected digital recording of military operations in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, etc. on the Internet. Kalashnikov assault rifles and machine guns of 7.62 and 5.45 mm calibers, as well as hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers (RPGs) are common and always in demand small arms systems in any theater of war. Among those who use AKM, AK-74, PK, PKM, DShK and others, there are groups supported and trained by the US Special Forces. Accordingly, every time the question of their weapons arises, the Americans have to scour the world in search of these weapons.
Recently, the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) posted a rather curious invitation to tender for the US small arms business. Further, literally about the goals and objectives:
“To develop an innovative domestic production of fully functioning facsimiles of foreign small arms systems, the products of which are equal in quality or better than those produced in the world”, “to carry out reversible or re-engineering support and domestic production of machine guns of the systems“ Modernized Kalashnikov Machine Gun ”(PKM) caliber 7 , 62×54 mm and “Nikitin, Sokolov, Volkov” (NSV-NSVT) “.
