Some comments on the SSD spear post suggest Textron will announce their withdrawal from NGSW. If true, that’s terrible news for the program.
I read those, but the rumor seemed weakly sourced; based on LMT reportedly saying they are no longer making suppressors for textron. And then the video where this was allegedly said disappeared.

And remember: HK is involved

Absolutely fantastic find Poli, that really helps further the understanding of how the LSAT/CT ammo works.

Good timing, was just about to post that. In addition to the animations, the rail mounted 'motion isolator' talked about last year still seems to be a thing.
That alone could do wonders for improving hit probability.
