Systems up in Numbers
July 2013 - "UK machine gun maker Manroy will supply UK Forces with blank firing systems (BFS), tow bars and tripods in a £1.1 million contract. Manroy will provide 295 BFS for training, taking the total number of BFS sold to the MOD by Manroy to 363. Manroy owns the intellectual property rights for the .50 calibre Heavy Machine Gun Blank Firing System, including the ammunition, and last May signed a £4.1 million, five year continuation to an existing contract to supply the MOD with blank ammunition."
