Manufactured by SAAB Bofors Dynamics, Sweden Caliber: 7.62x51mm NATO The Ksp-58DF (F - Försök = Trail) exisits in two versions, and is based upon the Ksp-58B. It was developed by SAAB Bofors Dynamics on the order of FMV (Försvarets Materiel Verk). The idea was to renovate, improve and hereby extend the service time of the current Swedish Defence Forces GPMG. The overall goal with the improvements were an increase of usability, simplify the function, diminish the weight of the system and make the usage of imaging and optic devices possible. During 2003-2004 trails were carried out with Markstridsskolan (MSS) at I 5, I 19, P 4 (Kvarn) and Amf 4. Continued trails with 25 guns in two diffrent configurations will be carried out during 2005 at P 4 (Kvarn) before the final version is spread thrughout the Swedish Defence Forces. http://www.bellum.nu/armoury/Ksp58DF.html The Swedish experimental Ksp-58DF for MOUT enviroment.
