I recently blogged about Tony Williams’ presentation at the NDIA Conference in which he argued that that NATO needs a new rifle and machine gun round. Directly after his presentation Per G. Arvidsson, Chairman of the NATO Weapons & Sensors Working Group, gave a presentation in defense of the 5.56mm NATO round [PDF Link].

I don’t agree with Mr Arvidsson’s conclusions but I do think his presentation slides are worth looking at. They contain some very interesting graphs.
