Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Introduces the NEGEV NG7

Israel Weapon Industries (IWI), a leader in the production of combat-proven small arms for governments, armies, and law enforcement agencies around the world, launches its new Light Machine Gun (LMG) - the NEGEV NG7 - at DEFEXPO 2012 at the Israel Pavilion, Stand 11.10-L.
The NEGEV NG7, the newest in the company’s NEGEV LMG family, is one of the only 7.62mm caliber LMGs in service today with semi-automatic mode, capable of pinpoint, single bullet shooting for enhanced firing accuracy.
The NEGEV NG7 shares almost 80% of its components with its smaller brother, the NEGEV 5.56mm caliber, which is deployed in dozens of countries around the world including Israel, and has been combat-proven in several wars and in a number of battle arenas.
The NEGEV NG7 includes a semi-automatic firing mode that enables accurate fire in combat situations, including ambush, Close Quarter Battle (CQB), and when shooting via telescope – and is the only 7.62 with single bullet firing capability. In automatic mode, its rate of fire is over 700 bullets per minute. Exceptionally lightweight (weighing less than 8 kg), it can be fired from a variety of mounts, including special mounts on helicopters, land vehicles, and naval vessels.

The company furthermore presents its complete light weapon solution for modern armies at the show. These include, next to the above mentioned NEGEV family of LMGs, the ACE family of assault rifles. The deployment of the company’s full portfolio of firearms by the Indian Army and security forces is a reflection of the long-term cooperation between IWI and India's security forces.
