Sir A, is the GA in the process of getting a new machine to produce the 50 cals? Or are they looking to simultaneously acquire both 50 cal and 20mm/25mm production capability?

Gen Martir (MBLT6 here) didn't explicitly mention if the 20mm production line they are evaluating from South Korea and a French company will also produce .50  cal ammo. Will have to check to be sure.
